Memories of Cades Cove
There's a loop road up in Cades cove in my favorite park you can bike or hike. It's 11 miles total. It's easy to lose track of time and get lost in the beauty of it all. The first time I went there I did it by car, the second time by bike, and third time I hiked it. The last time I went I visited some of the places I had remembered, revisited some of my feelings under and old tree I'd picniced under. Putting a rock in my pocket so I could have something tangible to put with the memory. I have this feeling in my heart that is really good when I was here. There's a spring in my step and I pick up the pace. By foot I see so much more than I did by car and bike. It occurs to me that my walk through life is a lot like that walk there at Cade's Cove. I've completed three scores and seven years how much further will this road take me. This too puts a smile on my face. I'm ready to take Mike up there, I know he would love it. I'm not in a hurry to leave this life, I know our time is not in my hands. I do feel the aches from time to time. I can't run like I used to . I got a little grace from Carol's journal today, http://journals.aol.com/eynl/HappeningsduringtheairIbreathe/entries/1394 she's back from vacation! Yayy! I was missing her and her vision she gives us. A beautiful one at that. She has the grace in her earthly walk. Check out her vacation shots. She visited Cades Cove too. Thanks for a little bit of grace I felt today.
