I had a great Thanksgiving, how about you? We traveled to see my hubby's family on Wednesday and Thursday, and then I flew out to North Carolina to see my grandmother who isn't doing too well. It was sad, but I'm glad I got to see her.
My dad teaches college. He shared a story with me he always tells his students on the first day of classes. He asks them to imagine their lives as a long lake. Would you rather cross the lake in a rowboat or a canoe? After discussing the pros and cons, he impresses upon them that we should strive to cross the lake of life in a canoe. While canoes may be more unsteady and take more effort, you are facing forward. In the rowboat, you are facing backward looking back on things that are in the past.
I hope you are all in canoes!
