I put special emphasis on beginnings. The beginning of the year, the month, the day…
Each holds special meaning to me. Because each represents possibilities. Potential waiting to be birthed.
So it was particularly upsetting for me to read what I considered a life changing text from Mother only an hour & a half before 2017 was born.
The text read,
“Lost lease. Couldn’t come to financial terms with landlord.”
More so than ever, since my father’s death, Mother needs her business for additional cash flow.
My mind raced, creating prioritized to do lists & playing scenarios out in my head as I prepared to cancel my plans for the next few days (maybe longer) so I could go help.
Later I found out…
She wasn’t referring to her business.
But to a restaurant she liked across town.
