Seasons in life

Season in life. That’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. I feel like I am at such a rich, delicious season right now. My life is filled with beauty, happiness and joy and my cup is full to overflowing. I am surrounded by people I love and opportunities to love and serve. Like the velvety red rose at her peak of blossoming beauty, some of her petals may be imperfect, but her beauty can in no way be denied.

Moving to Normandy has been a tremendous blessing in my life. Its simple beauty and tranquility are a constant balm to my soul. The move incurred a change (I resigned as an in-home daycare provider) that has allowed me to be more available to help Sam with our family business. The children are also growing and becoming more independent and so I now have time to explore activities like gardening, running, learning to play the piano – things I’ve always wanted to do, but never had the time or energy or resources to pursue. But this season has arrived! And I am fully enjoying every moment.

Rémy will go to school in the fall and then I will dedicate more time to work. The children (who have taken a break from extra-curricular activities since our move) will surely start their after-school classes come September. Life will be a bit more hectic. The older children are entering their full-blown period of adolescence with all of its highs and lows… Seasons change.

And that’s why I’ve decided to live this one to the fullest…

  1. What a great post. It sounds like you have a lot going on, but it’s so great you’re enjoying it and appreciating every step. Normandy is gorgeous and I’m so jealous! BTW—is that your house in the last picture?? That’s like a fairytale house. BEAUTIFUL!

  2. So glad you are loving life in Normandy, and even more your current opportunity to “suck out all the marrow of life” as Thoreau put it! I’m sure this season will give you strength when the fall brings a bit more scheduling. Vive l’été et vive la rentrée.
