our family change was one like an iguana shedding their skin. you see iguanas know when to shed their skin, it's a sign of proper care and good health, a tell tale it is growing. a new layer of fresh skin doesn't come without struggle but it marks an end. and with that, a beginning. i have struggled with change since the day my sister started kindergarten. i remember it vividly. it marked the first time i felt change and i wasn't much of a fan. as i grew and experienced greater change in my life i learned to adapt. i may come late to the party but i get there. eventually. and then when i do i open my heart wide, i embrace it and never look back. so while this change is my sister's and although a brave and necessary one- i grieve and wait for the day when i arrive at the party because we all know i'll get there. and in the meantime i stand in awe of her and her ability to be the change so many don't have the courage to be. she is, we are, in a new season and it feels really good.
