As we walked through the woods this weekend, we came across a wooden pathway. I wondered why someone would build it. It seemed so unnecessary. It was barely elevated, not crossing anything, and placed exactly on top of the dirt path below. I voiced my thoughts to my kids. Libby said, "Mom, it is like some of the stuff you make. Not really necessary, it just makes life nice." Wow. She not only put me in my place, but she paid me the highest compliment; one very perceptive child.
Here's to making life nice.
