all these years

How I loved the challenge and beauty of learning the country roads when we moved to a small town years ago.   I didn’t think I had much of a sense of direction.  But with Lake Michigan to the east and a major freeway running north and south, plus my compass, I wasn’t going to get too far lost.  Now so many memories are wrapped up with travels on these roads.  My destinations were the library, grocery stores, and my mother’s home.
