Permission to Rest

The last 5 1/2 years were intense.  
The move here was amazing.  
We have shifted from an urban 
to an agrarian lifestyle.  
Learning curve was steep, 
a cliff at times.
We learned a considerable amount 
with more teachings garunteed ahead.  
We gave support to my Elderly Parents 
who have since passed.  
With the sale of Mom and Dad's house earlier this week,
life has shifted.
A door has closed.
Other doors are opening.
We are moving into Winter.
Our hands were full
of Harvest chores and putting the Garden to bed.
Those chores are more and more complete.
We are arriving in the season 
which promises
permission to rest.  
That feels good.
Really good.
