I’ve been thinking about seasons – specifically seasons of life. Part of this definitely comes from January’s theme in the Inspired Scrapbooking Class (taught by Stacy Julian) that I have been working on. I’ve been more mindful of seasons at this time because of some of the changes I’ve made in my own life recently, especially concerning my family. This season of my life is very much about helping my children transition to adulthood.
Anytime I think about seasons of life, I can’t help but sing Stevie Nicks’ Landslide in my head. It’s a beautiful song (The Dixie Chicks also covered it) and I mentally ask myself the same question she sings about…can I handle the seasons of my life?
I’m proud that I’ve been able to handle the different seasons of my life, even when they were very difficult. I have to say that I’m especially enjoying this current season. It’s wonderful to have this time with my kids (ages 17 and 20) and I love being part of their lives.
What season are you experiencing right now? How do you feel about it? Interesting topic to think (and scrap) about!
