Tuesday afternoon while talking with Brooke on the front porch of Rest In Peace… we were startled by a commotion and looked up just in time to see the most beautiful white heron flying right past us and landing on the roof of the porch!
I knew it had to be a good omen and looked it up -it was the perfect sign to start the retreat!
The heron symbolizes stillness and tranquility… and how these two qualities must be present to recognize new opportunities.
The heron also signifies determination because in life there will always be marshes and ponds that all of us wade through in stages. Yes… a heron symbolizes one’s awakened sense of openness and independence in meeting life’s challenges.
What a terrific way to start our Edisto stay-we got to face-time with Jackson as she gave us a tour of her abode in New Jersey! It was such a wonderful surprise!
Little by little life is returning to normalcy with heart to heart talks with our oldest and closest friends! We appreciate each precious moment even more now and take nothing for granted!
And none of us are giving up on a future agenda that includes the four of us reunited again. The truth is the older we get the more we need our friends who knew us when-it is a powerful and sacred connection.
So until tomorrow …Make new friends but keep the old… one is silver and the other’s gold.
