We Went Down That Road

February 4th, 2017 No comments

And saw some pretty spectacular things.
We weren’t sure where the road was leading to but we thought for sure that we would see something different, and we did.

So much of life seems to revolve around what road you are going to attempt to travel down if you choose a road at all. On the road of your choice there will be excitements, perils, uncertainties and the like. How you deal with all of them will ultimately define you and who you are becoming.

Along the way you’ll probably meet people and they will shape who you are as well. They will say things that may impact you and they will do things that may alter the course or trajectory of your life. Fellow travelers wandering around trying to figure out life in just the same way you are. At times the road may become very bumpy and hopefully during these times you will find someone loved or close to you to hold onto to share the experience. Experiencing turbulence alone can be a very unsettling experience but sometimes we are left to grin and bear it on our own, tempering our soul.

Yes, we went down that road and we were scared. We didn’t know what dangers lie ahead but we were determined to forge on and take on the day ahead of us. We had each other. We had the world. We were having the time of our lives. The daylight seemed endless. The road, endless. All we really had was our excitement and our smiles. Our hearts beat. Our hearts pounded. We savored every moment. Would the day ever end? It didn’t seem so but we found our cabin at the bottom of the canyon and I tried to sleep. Water crept to the edge of my eyes as I thought about our day together – our life.

If I had to wake up and do it all over again would I do anything differently? I don’t think so.

It’d be great to hear from you,
