Speed Bumps and Pot Holes
We knew they were coming. The road couldn’t…it just couldn’t be easy and smooth all the time!
So the question lingered in the background of “us” ~ when would it hit and how would we react?
Would we get stuck and break down?
Or travel forward as we find our way?
When the speed bump and pot hole stops us, would we become derailed? Give up, be lead by our inner demons – taking separate paths whilst fleeing from fear and pain?
Or, would we get back into gear, moving forward with caution in order to continue our journey? Knowing full well that there will be other words or actions that will slow us down, spin us around, feel like a CRASH!
Only time will tell what our story will be. But for today, we got through the speed bump and pot hole. We listened to each other’s voice and the wounds, though fresh and evident, began healing.
The road is clear once again and we know that something as precious as this doesn’t come around often.
Our story of today is created from a precious and unique metal,fired by our life’s experiences.
It is that metal which binds us.
