The Long Road
Life is a series of roads. We are all moving towards one goal or another. We measure and mark the journey with milestones and makers of completion, but sometimes, we need to take a long look back.
I’ve had to do that a lot lately. It took a crazy flu to make me slow down and take a rest.
When you go through life full-speed, it’s difficult to see what you pass; or what you’ve left behind.
I don’t have regrets, but I know that I’ve missed some things.
So, for three weeks of going nowhere and saying very little, I was forced to look back.
This journey has been beautiful. It’s been fraught with obstacles and detours. I have gotten off track and back on again, but when I slow down and look closely, I can hear the ancestors telling me to “go ‘head.”
I can hear God saying, “You are my beloved, in you I am well pleased.”
And I can hear the children from the future saying I’m so glad that I knew her. I am so glad that she showed me love.
Stay the course Dear Hearts, but take a moment to look back and know that you are marvelous.
Be you Be Well Be Marvelous
