Recalculating

“Coming back is the thing that enables you to see how all the dots in your life are connected, how one decision leads you another, how one twist of fate, good or bad, brings you to a door that later takes you to another door, which aided by several detours–long hallways and unforeseen stairwells–eventually puts you in the place you are now.” 

Ann Patchett, What Now?

I’m on the way back home to Iowa for a short visit with family and friends. It’s been quite a day of travel.

It was a long day made even longer because, for some unknown reason, I thought I knew more about the route than my GPS. That decision and a very long stretch of road construction added a couple of hours to my journey.

I was presented with an opportunity to see a lot of more of Texas and Oklahoma than planned.

This coming week will be filled with making new memories with some very important people. Seems like the perfect time to repost my earliest shared stories.

Happy Mother’s Day, my friends. I love you.

I am…

B…simply being…

God bless and know you are loved.

~Peace~
