I’ve been their tour guide for the first piece of the journey.
My job to try to point out the potholes as they toddled.
They are now beginning the walk away.
I’m not going anywhere, at least I have no plans to, but the road ahead feels much more pilgrimage then it does all-inclusive guided tour.
Their own trails to blaze, their own words to write.
Adventures to be had with and without me.
The desire for this year is that they know themselves in a way I didn’t.
And that they and their new companions on this journey are led by the gentle promptings of God.
Happy 2018. Happy trails.
