Our life paths – flowing like a river.

River by Robert Servais

I was recently in touch with a cousin with whom I had not spoken for quite some time.  We talked about what we are currently doing and also spoke about how we feel we came to be at this point in our journey.  I have been thinking a lot about what she said and I thought I would share some it today in this newsletter.
