I am grateful for all the roads I know in our area. There are the roads people use to get to the freeways, and then there are the smaller roads. I like the slower pace, and that I can take extra time to arrive home from errands, at this time in my life.
Sometimes I like to visit the roads that I reached after returning here from my mother’ s home in the Milwaukee area, years ago. There was always a sense of being in a familiar place, of course; then as I reached the small country roads further north, I felt my soul-home and place.
These roads are always new, even as their presence in my life is a deep blessing.
