I wasn’t happy to pull the Five of Cups as it is a challenging card. But as it always is, the Five of Cups is the card that best matches my state of mind.

I find myself living alone this week. My eldest son, Noah is off to college as a freshman. My younger son, Simon has begun living half time with his Dad. I am experiencing the “empty nest” syndrome and it is painful.

I think of all the people I have loved and lost over the years due to one reason or another. My heart hurts and I feel the icy winds of loneliness piercing me. But wait…my sons will be here again and there are so many people still in my life, all is not spilled.
