One of the sweetest times I’ve started having this year is long walks with my friend Carol.We meet at Eagle Lake and walk, talk, pray, and laugh. We are also known to dream and cry. Each spot on this walk has a different dream, a different prayer attached with it. We wonder about the wandering, whisper heartaches, celebrate triumphs. We ask What’s Next? These walks are good for my soul.
A favorite haunt for my friend Jamie and I is Minnehaha Falls. It is considered favored even if we only get there once a year. We walk around, hunting down forget-me-nots, sit on a bench or the grass by Hiawatha and Minnehaha, check if the Falls are strong or not. We spend this time talking about life, questions, worries, what we are learning. I’m pretty sure we’ve both cried and we always find something to laugh about. There is always prayer and almost always food.
