Growing Up With Grace

Growing Up With Grace

Wow, when we were young all we wanted to do was be “grown up”. We wanted to be able to make our own decisions, not have to be told what to do, go to bed when we wanted, eat what we wanted, go where we […]

Where Do I Start??

Where Do I Start??

I get this question all the time. How is it that some people seem to easily eliminate “clutter” in their life while others continue to hold onto it “dragging” it behind them like a wagon filled with heavy rocks??? How does one start to go […]

Saying “Goodbye”

Saying “Goodbye”

I am reminded of this as a friend that I have only known for a couple of years is planning to move back home and leave the Richmond area.  We had a small gathering for her recently giving all of us an opportunity to wish her well and say “goodbye”.  It was interesting to see how many emotions I became aware of as we were sitting around laughing, talking and sharing with everyone.  Life is full of times when we have to say “goodbye”.  As we move through our own life journey, we are constantly saying “goodbye” to many people, personal items that we love, perhaps homes that we have lived in, family and friends, jobs, even thoughts, ideas and dreams that we have held onto.

As we move through life and we are faced with saying “goodbye” often, I don’t think that perhaps we realize at the time just how emotional this can be.  Whispers of Time has allowed me the opportunity to work with many people as they move through their own journey of letting go and saying “goodbye” to items they have loved and lived with for many years.  These items hold so many emotions for many of us.  They are part of our “life” journey and can bring so many emotions to the surface. Items make us laugh as we remember “events” and “stories” that they’ve been a part of.  They make us cry as we remember perhaps loved ones that have passed.  They remind us of our children growing up when the house was full of crazy times as we help mold them into adults through each stage of their journey.  Saying “goodbye” to all things can be quite difficult and always emotion on many levels.

We at Whispers of Time are here to help you you through all of this.  Perhaps you have your own story of “goodbye” that you’d like to share with us.  Please feel free to do so.  We want this to be an opportunity to build relationships and open a dialogue with each of you on so many levels.  We are excited about what the future holds and we thank you “always” for allowing us to be part of your own unique “journey”.

Did You Hear That?

Did You Hear That?

Did you hear that? Items speak to us constantly.  How does someone explain that in a large space with many unique, one of a kind pieces, the smallest of items speak volumes to us, if we’re listening.  Items hold energy and people who shop and […]

Can I Help You?

Can I Help You?

“Can I help you?” Remember in “Days Gone By”, these words were heard in any store we shopped.  People knew you by name and you felt a little more special just for having walked in the door?  Well, at Whispers of Time, that is how […]
