“The journey of a thousand miles begins with the one step.” This is a world re-known quote by Lao Tzu. It features time and time again to inspire people to begin anything they dream of doing, having or being by just taking that first step.
A couple of weeks ago, we too had this quote at the forefront of our minds when we started the visiting face book friends journey.
Except ours was a hug … followed by the giving of a card … from Brook. Little did she understand what it was that we were even attempting to contemplate. But it didn’t matter … her hug, her card, her grin welled up a tear in the eye to be a moment that will be remembered for the journey ahead.
In her own handwriting it read:
“To Breit and Cler I hope you have a safe trip. Love Brook”
It’s not often that I am lost for words. And the reason for the face book messaging absence since that weekend, when it all began!
Well Brook, I intend on carrying your card with me to be with us for every visit we do. A reminder that sometimes one doesn’t need to say one word when having a conversation.
To become a worldly possession.
