Anytime I've ever seen a path somewhere, I've always found it interesting. How many times has this path been taken? Who took those steps? Where were they going?
My grandma is a very outdoorsy lady. She also has a very routine lifestyle and has many paths around her house. They are comforting somehow as I know who made them. As I was making sure my kids had fed the horses this morning it seems I saw one of ours for the first time. I've been on it hundreds of times but never really thought about what it took to get there until today. This is one of our paths and I can tell you the story it tells is one of struggle. This path has been stomped by angry little boy feet that didn't want to feed. This path was made on early cold mornings and hot August nights. Rattlesnakes have traveled here and almost gotten us a time or two. Little boys have ran this path to try to shoot a rabbit frantically trying to outrun them. It's not much but it's our path and I saw it and just had to take a picture.
