When I saw today’s Five Minute Friday word, JOURNEY, this poem came to mind.
Throughout this journey I have often chosen to take ‘the one less traveled by’ and it has certainly made a difference.
The decisions we make as we journey through life are like a tree as it grows its branches. If you can imagine with me the start of the tree, just a little sapling, no branches yet. Then as the years go by growth allows branches to grow on branches from the original sapling. As this tree of life, if you will, grows year after year, there is new life from the old. Sometimes winter takes it’s toll and a few branches fall off. Spring and summer storms may remove a few branches here and there. The tree continues to withstand the buffeting of wind, maybe a few lightening strikes, perhaps a few children climb and play in it… The journey continues…
My journey has been much like the tree. Each new branch has been a fork in the road, a life change or decision has presented itself. I’ve often chosen ‘the one less traveled’ and yes, it has made all the difference.
Blessings to you and yours!
