When you first start walking,
you don’t quite know for sure where the journey will take you…
I’ve recently begun an exciting new project, with people who are becoming trusted friends. We’re creating together on a level of understanding and appreciation that I’ve never quite experienced before. We mesh, we fight, we play, and we’re doing the best we can to reach our common goal.
But you can never control where the path will lead you, no matter who you are with, or how well you get along, or how much you plan or pray. Sometimes the dark forest leads a friend astray, and the only thing you can do is allow them to follow their path, make their choices, and suffer the consequences. For I am not here to tell them what to do or where to go.
We are simply moving forward together, sharing the moment of this particular portion of our journey. We hand each other laughter like precious diamonds, place our trust in one others’ hearts for safekeeping, and live together to see yet another day of sunshine spread before us like golden sand tickling our bare toes. How we walk that path is determined by each individual, and the most we can do for one another is hope. Love. And learn.
Even when we have to let each other go.
