I have more to say about my physical recovery eventually, for now I am progressing slowly and thankful to be on the mend. I'm also tremendously grateful for the outpouring of support from family and friends, be they online or 3-D. Those of you who have prayed, left comments, sent emails or even small gifts have been such a wonderful encouragement. In the meantime, it's been a time of strange thoughts and processing things in new ways since I've been through a bit of an upheaval. Just to keep you busy, here's a thought I had today.
Anyone who has gotten through an American Literature class will have read Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken. It's a wonderful poem in so many ways.
I wonder though, what if we who have typically been trailblazers, taking the hard road and leaving our mark wherever we go, what happens if we one day chose to turn around, return to the fork and quietly, mindfully, respectfully walk the road others have paved? What if we chose to learn from them after so many of our own lonely labors in the wilderness?
So I invite you to share your travels on paved or rocky roads, your lessons, your thoughts. Give me something to mull over on this concept as I continue to rest and recover.
