Today we went to a birthday party in the neighborhood next to ours. Instead of piling into the car and taking the long one-way detour back home, we decided to venture on on foot via a path in the woods between our housing developments. The path through the woods was well worn but it hadn’t always been that way. At one point, it took one person taking a walk in one direction for the first time. It took courage and belief that the bramble scratches would be worth it in order to make it easier to pass for the people following behind. Sometimes our lives provide opportunities to blaze new trails. Other times we are the benefactors of a path already trodden.
What paths did you walk today?
