Or, how we all need a little help from a friend
A few weeks ago I went for a walk in the woods. I had gotten done with my day a little late, then had a bit of work to catch up on, and got out a bit later than I had initially planned. That, coupled with the fact that the days are not quite as long as they have been, made for a bit of a darker walk toward the end of my saunter through the woods. Towards the latter part of my walk, the path became much less clear and I was forced to go slower so I didn’t trip on an unseen root or rock.
As it happened, it was the beautiful October harvest moon that night, and as I finished my walk the moon was low in the sky, massive, and just gorgeous...it was also conveniently helpful toward the end of my walk. While it was still hard to see the path, the light of the moon allowed me to see my path a little more clearly.
I was thinking, toward the end of my walk, about those moons in our lives. Those people who may not shine a direct light on our path, who may not tell us where to walk and show us exactly where the rocks and roots are, but those people in our lives who light our path just a little more. While they might not point out exactly where we should walk, they make the world around us a little brighter so we can see where we’re going just a little more clearly.
My dear friends, may we see those in our lives who allow us to see our path a little more clearly. May we see them and may we find gratitude for the role they play in our lives.
I hope you have an amazing week, my friend.
