In that moment I had a deeper understanding of what was meant when it was said that life is ever changing. Nothing alive stays the same, it is impossible because there is a beginning, middle, and an end. Weaving throughout those stages we grow and thrive, learn and surrender, teach and praise, and eventually shrivel and waste away, completing the cycle so that it can be passed on to future generations. We are taken care of and then become the care taker, returning the favor with love and admiration, as we accept our limitations and move forward in faith, knowing that our path has been presented. Holding on forever doesn’t necessarily mean you love more and coming to terms with letting go doesn’t mean that your love was or is any less. It just is. Love is love in any stage of the cycle. Change is merely inevitable.
