A beautiful light over the horizon

Yesterday was one of those days that just sits well in your soul.
Do you know the days I'm talking about?

I think it had something to do with the fact
that the air was clear
and the sun came out from behind the clouds.

It's getting lighter.
I have seen a sunrise two days in a row now.
And the mountains echo gloria.

Besides light, there was love.
It was my last day at work,
and I could feel how loved I am there
and how I will be missed.

It is a nice thing to know that you are missed.
Bittersweet, I suppose.
But still
to know that I have touched a heart
and to know
that there will be a small
Meg-shaped hole
and that my heart will have a small hole
where that person was
is sweet and beautiful
and the way that it is supposed to be, I think.
We are supposed to live together
in friendship and love
so that it is hard to leave.

And I know
that when the time comes
I will miss Salt Lake.
It's funny.
I didn't think I would.
But now--
well, I had a friend tell me
that she believes
that "home is wherever God leads you."
And I feel that to be right.
It feels right to me.
And Salt Lake
has become home to me.
I am grateful to be here
I am grateful for my experiences here
I am grateful for my friends here
I am grateful to love and to be loved here.

if you do it right, you'll love where you are.

  1. But you just posted about loving your job! What happened? Where are you going?

  2. It was a 4-month internship, so it ended in late January. Right now I'm doing some freelance work while waiting to hear back about PhD programs. :)
