There it was, gloriously stretched out before me, and then I realized…

…That deck was full of potential when it was empty.

My imaginings of what might take place there – the gatherings of family and friends, the peaceful evenings and morning coffees with the sunrise – were far grander than anything that actually occurred in that place while we occupied this house.

    I want to cry … but how beautiful, too. My sister, dear Angela, agrees and also says, “I understand,” (sigh, shake of the head), “I know perfectly well.” But the beauty is the gift you never have to give away … I pray.

    1. It does remind me to live into the potential more consciously, in each of life’s precious moments, aware of my responsibility to opportunity and not just to my “to do” list. 😉
