Thank You

I was lost.

Wandering around life with no direction.

Desperately searching for a guide.

A sherpa.

There was nothing for miles around.

No map.

No trail.


I screamed, "Hellooooooo, anyone out there?"


I was about to give up.

Give in.

Lay down.

Close my eyes.

Go to sleep.

Then suddenly a footstep in the grass.

A tiny step.

An inkling of a path.

It seemed to appear from nowhere.

But clearly another had walked here before me.

I put one foot in front of the other.

As I kept going, the path became more defined.

A trail leading up the mountainside.

My solution was there all along.

I couldn't see it because I was looking too hard.

Eyes too squinched.

I just had to look down at my own feet.

Had to keep walking.

Solutions are dreamed up by individuals.

Those few individuals take a step.

Make a path.

Make a difference.

A difference for others.


Advocates for those who don't have voices.

More blessed to give than to receive.

Thank you.
