A Story Waiting

There is no greater agony than bearing an
untold story.                Maya Angelou

During our Discardia adventure, in the garage,
Mr. Lee found a wedding anniversary card
from just over 20 years ago.  It was from
a particularly difficult time, my nearly nine
year marriage was crumbling, and my then
husband had been out of work for nearly a year. 
Up until he lost his job I had been a homemaker.
All those years ago, I was thrust away
from my two small boys and 
into the workplace to make ends meet.

In the now.
























The card embraced three letters, my sister
always folders her letters like a hug.
The letters were from my sister, mother and brother. 
Each letter acknowledged my grief and
encouraged faithfulness. 
Their words powerful and
sentimental all these years later. 

Part of the clearing out includes life
laundry. Clearing of emotional cobwebs,
old hurts, welcoming joy, embracing
where we have been, and how we
move on through our experiences.

Spring has come























Today, I mailed a little care package to my sister.
Enclosed was twenty year old currency
that was found enclosed in the anniversary card.

The card and it's precious
contents may have never have been
found buried in the clutter of the garage
without Discardia and tidying. 

Everything happens in its perfect time.
