My Heart Hurts

I've been silent for a while, & I'd be lying if I said it had everything to do with the start of a new & busy semester.  That is certainly part of my preoccupation, but there are other things that are causing me to struggle. 

I fully intended to write a post on my 2011 word of the year, 


but as I introduce you to my word of the year, I can already say that it's been more of a stretch than I had ever anticipated.  When I chose "Release" I had specific things in mind of which I knew I had to let go.  However, I've been asked to release things already that I never thought I would have to say good-bye to.  And it hurts.  I thought these were good things, & maybe in some situations they are, but at least for a time... I have to release them.

Even when it breaks my heart.

A non-related, heart~happy moment.


Letting go of certainties.....
......grieving the loss.....

  2. Hello dear girl, I just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you right now, and I will keep you in my prayers.

  3. I like your word for 2011 and can certainly identify with it. It can be so painful to truly release certain things from our lives...I wish you courage and strength and pray that this year of letting go brings you many blessings to replace what you have given up.

  4. your heart, dear leah, is so very beautiful.


Thank you for taking the time to muse aloud with me,
to share your heart
& allow your thoughts to become words.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Leah
