12/5/16 RMB Treading Lightly

12/5/16 RMB Treading Lightly

Dear Rita Mae Brown,
Tomorrows turn into todays and then yesterdays at a steady pace. Some cycles repeat, like seasons and the moon’s phases.

Every day is unique, yet strikingly like the day before. Progress is made by two steps forward, one sideways, one back, one up, one down and an occasional deep breath followed by a big leap of faith.

Sometimes we can gloriously look at where we have been and count blessings along the path to where we are now. And sometimes we look at where we are and shake our heads in dismay.

I aim my feet forward daily, truly I do. Unfortunately, my forward is too far left for some, too far right for others. In our determination to move ahead, we are tripping over each other’s feet. 

Treading lightly,
