CLOSING THE CIRCLE

Well, I promised to let you know how the whole fence mending thing went, and so I will.

It went better than I could have imagined, in both cases. I tend to forget that I'm not the only person working to better understand myself. It was obvious with both these old friends that they, too, had done much "personal work."

Put two women with shared histories together, add a large amount of middle-aged, hard lessons won, put them in a safe, neutral environment, and voila - love.

I don't think anything will change on a day-to-day basis with either of them, the roles they once played have been filled, or simply no longer exist. There is no need for "more," but there was a big need for peace.

I feel like two ghosts that had been taking up room in my psyche, have been exorcised.

Whatever sacred contracts we had with each other, have been fulfilled.

Completely.

Now.

Amen.

Carrie, what a coincidence that I also just called someone I had quit talking to over a year ago. There was no big breakthough or change but certainly some peace was restored in part of my life.

Jenny said...

Happy for you.

Can you hear the angels singing? "Hallelujah!"

You are one of the most courageous people I know. I love how you attack things head-on.

But mostly I love you.
