Having been away for a month from my beloved TPW friends and our walks together, on my return this week I am more grateful than ever before for everyone. Now I will tell you why! Did you know that everyone in our group smiles? Even when things are tough, each one of us finds something to enjoy, to laugh at, and to joke about. When we talk about the serious things in life, we easily veer off into asides that are in turns fascinating, insightful, or hilarious. I remember someone saying the reason that angels can fly is that they take themselves lightly. You may not see yourself as an angel, but trust me, each of our TPW friends, perhaps unwittingly, fills that role for someone on a regular basis. And for this I am filled with gratitude and perhaps a bit of joy, even when my fingers and nose are frozen.
