Sacrifice’s Wrap Up

Up until August 1st of this year, my husband and I lived in motor home for a year, having travelled across North America for six of those months.  It was a drastic change of lifestyle for us, and an incredible journey.

As with all change, it required certain sacrifices.  We let go of our bricks and sticks home, and our worldly possessions (save what we could carry with us) and bid farewell to all that was familiar, including friends and family.

Today, we reconnected with old friends, and what started as afternoon visit over tea, spilled over to dinner and into the evening.  There is a lot to catch up on after so much lapsed time.

Thus the lateness of this blog post.

When I set the focus for this weekly challenge, I had not realized that it would coincide with Remembrance Day.  Graciously, it did, and this was reflected in many of the postings this week, although some spoke of the generosity of others, the willingness to sacrifice all for love, the losses inadvertently suffered by victims of childhood abuse, and the value of learning to give selflessly.

I feel blessed to be part of such a thoughtful and inspired community.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
