I let it go years ago, but it came back into my life this Christmas. It was introduced in one of my very first posts in June of 2014 entitled, A Little Bit of Everything.
Releasing it from it’s hook attached to the old oak tree, only to discover it crawling with ants. They had began living inside the Disco Ball and made themselves at home, so I left it by the tree and stepped away.
It wasn’t easy to let go of. I thought about exterminating it and bringing it with us to our new home, but not everything travels from one journey to the next.
That was two houses and four years ago.
My daughter knew I loved that Disco Ball and she gave me a new one this Christmas. It’s not silver like the last one. This one is made of color. My life is more colorful now.
It’s hanging out front and when the light hits it, colorful dots dance everywhere.
Why wasn’t it replaced before now?
We lived in the country, so there were trees. The disco ball isn’t expensive. I spend that much on coffee each week. I believe it was the timing of it all. What makes our heart happy doesn’t leave. It stays in our heart. When the time is just right, it’ll come back, even better than it was before.
Just like the Disco Ball.
