Thawing out

There are a dozen word pictures I could use to describe this last year of my life; I’m going to stick with Frozen.

I don’t want to go into a lot of detail, because some folks in my life might not understand fully if I let it all out. But I do want to say that 2010 has been a long, hard, wintry season . It has been painful. Even debilitating.

In January, I was warm. By November, I was frozen. 

Tonight, I  dripped.

I even puddled.

I’m re-learning how:

To be

To have fun

To move about in our own family rhythms

I cannot remember when last I was this free in laughter and love.

I have to remember I’m not completely thawed. That will take time.  And willingness to surrender. But what reward it will bring.

This winter, I will follow the sun and drink in its freedom.
