Farewell to Farewells

Total exhaustion has taken hold. Brain is fried, emotions taut, body shot.

Monday as we prepared to pull out, my right leg collapsed and as I reached out to stop the fall, I grasped with my left arm, wrenching an already torn shoulder. It did not bode well for the trip home.

With a dead car battery at every stop, and ongoing problems with the RV, we have limped and been stalled all along the way.

This too shall pass, as they say.

Farewell was the focus this week, something I do not do easily (apparently). I hate to say goodbye, often avoiding the task. It feels so final.

What I realized, in reading through this week’s posts, is that I focus on the door closing often forgetting that another will open.

I thank you for your input this week, and hope you forgive me being only sporadically present.

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.

  1. VJ, I sincerely hope you are ok and everything got better. You are amazing. I have no doubt that you will endure this little test. Sounds like you need a vacation! 😂 (from your vacation)

  2. First, I’m so sorry to hear about your fall, injuries…that things are not going well in this “farewell”. Prayers continue. Also, apologies for not getting my farewell post done yet…April is becoming an overwhelming “write”. I still plan to do your prompt–and understand that it won’t be featured in your link-up, which is fine, I don’t write for that purpose…so you’ll see it when you see it 🙂 Sending love, hugs from a distance–hang in there, yes this will pass; there’s often a reason for things, to be revealed “later”…and more doors are opening for you, I’m confident 🙂 ❤ Ennle

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I know what you mean about overwhelmed by all the prompts. I didn’t have internet for two days and when I opened up this morning, I had just shy of 500 emails. Do what you can and I take nothing personally.


      1. 500 emails–that would send me right over the slippery edge. I will probably allude to my current meltdown in a post later…but my testimony remains the same: God is GOOD, still works miracle today 🙂 Thank you for your grace…as I suspect I’ll be “liking” w/out comments till my nerves settle 🙂

      2. I’m relieved that I’m not alone, though I don’t mean I’m happy others are suffering–and really, a lot of us are dealing with “stuff” of one kind or another. It’s just a season…it came to pass, not to stay…we’ll all be on top again soon 🙂 ❤
