Tomorrow is the first day of Spring which is a time of transformation on the earth. The flowers and plants we saw wilt are now budding into lush green picture-perfect plants. The weather is warm and envelops us with memories of childhood, being young, innocent and free. Throwing ourselves down in the grass and looking up to the blue skies with a smile that says "all is well."
My own life is leading me into new directions and new beginnings now on this very day. Just when the earth enters into it's rebirth, I feel now I am entering into mine. After thirty-five years of working in the same place (the place where I met my twin soul) I feel led to move in a different direction. I have grown so much spiritually and my heart has expanded so much that I feel the need to take a leap of faith and allow life to unfold in its most exquisite form.
I don't have any set goals or outcome, as life is about the journey and not the destination. Only intentions of a life full of love, happiness, peace, joy and abundance. There is a beautiful quote by Osho that says: “Don’t try to force anything. Let life be a deep let-go. God opens millions of flowers everyday without forcing their buds.” I shall enjoy every single moment along the way all the while walking quietly, with love and kindness. Breathing in each new moment along the way as it comes.
Spring is beautiful especially in Virginia, and the scenery was breathtaking on that last day I spent with Sam in early April. Although the outcome was not what I had envisioned it has opened me up to so much more than I ever anticipated. His love has led me down a path that has allowed me to experience the most beautiful and sacred love that I have ever experienced and the journey just continues to get better and better with each new step. In love and light.

Hello, my name is Sheila Jenkins and I am the author of "The Day Before: Eternal Bonds into the Afterlife. I am the mother of two daughters and grandmother of five. I love music, dancing and lots of laughter. After working in the beautiful Shenandoah National Park for 35 years I decided to leave and I am currently a server at the Mimslyn Inn in Luray, Virginia. I worked in the Shenandoah National Park for 35 years where I met Sam and my journey began, which led me to write our story. I plan to continue on my journey and help others discover the divine love within and process their grief.
