I was walking through the house, carrying items that needed putting away, when I stepped on something small and hard. Not being able to check it out right away, I walked to my destination and laid down my parcels. I turned to look behind me, but misjudging the distance I had traveled, missed the item on the floor, at first.
This made me think. We don't always realize how far we've come until we take the time to look back;
both in the literal, and metaphorical sense.
How far have you come, my friends? How far have I come? I certainly have learned my share of lessons! Literally I haven't traveled far, but metaphorically, I may have influenced people all over the world.
That's a humbling thought.
