about this walk...

posted on: 8.11.2012

we're on together, you and me... we.

We don't go this way alone, ya know?  It may feel that way at times, like no one else could possibly know how hard the road or how cruel the challenges that seem so uniquely ours.  Between you and me and every other living soul is a shared journey, and I am truly honored to be here, this go-round with you.

I'm off to watch our Tyty play a game of baseball and learn a bit more about what it means to be a part of a team, to take swings and make hits that sometimes serve no other purpose than to help get your teammates a bit further along.  

And as we settle in to enjoy our weekend and to get ready for the new week this is a story we will keep in our souls.  If ever there were a story worthy of taking up a bit of soul space, I think this would be it.  

If you'd like, you can learn more about Spencer West and his climb to the top of Kilimanjaro this summer in support of Free The Children's sustainable water initiative here.

And... Happy Weekend too!
