I have already done this one on Day 10, you can go back and read it if you’d like. Since it’s already been done I’d like to share my favorite poem.
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
In the turn of events in our lives these past few months I find myself thinking about this poem quite a bit. Watching those I love suffer, and work though life’s trials can cause more heartache than I feel like I can bear at times. I am so thankful for a loving Father in Heaven who sent me to Jeremy and his constant support and love. Our trials refine us, and make us stronger.
As my amazing grandfather often told me growing up. “This too shall pass.” Thank you grandpa, I love you so very much.
