“Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view, That stand upon the threshold of the new.” Edmund WallerWordPress has a weekly photo challenge. I’ve decided to give it a try because taking pictures slows me down and helps me see every day beauty. This week’s theme: Threshold.
Threshold moments are those moments when you come to the realization that everything is about to change. I remember standing alone in a hospital bathroom trying to figure out how to get the tiny gown around my huge belly while also wrapping my head around the fact that I was on the threshold of motherhood. Eighteen years later, I stood in the doorway of my daughter’s college dorm knowing my life was about to change again.
Threshold moments make me appreciate life because they teach me that nothing lasts forever. I better enjoy the world I’m in because soon I’ll come to another door leading to a new adventure, leaving the old behind.
