Letting go . . .

We went to Missoula yesterday to visit the parents. They are doing as ok as they can considering. I had lots of time to think and visit with Bob as we drove. It was Bob's first day of "retirement" as we have sold the business officially now to our son Stan. It will be good.

One of the things that kept coming into my mind was about "letting go". I am ready to start the next part of my journey. I have tried some different things with my quilting art world in the past few months and I am much more clear on that journey. I have had many changes in my personal and family life in the past few months and more to come. Here are some quotes I found that will help for guidance along this part of the trail. . .

"Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be."
-- Anon

"Think about any attachments that are depleting your emotional reserves. Consider letting them go.'
-- Oprah Winfrey

"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us."
-- Joseph Campbell

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
-- Lao Tzu

Today, I start to practice "letting go".

Such insight... Some things we choose to let go of others we have to as life provides with without options...... I hope you both enjoy the new journey life has provided to you both... Sending hugs and love... Ronda
