Words for Wednesday: tracks

blogIMG_6776We had a visitor at some point during a snowy night recently because this is what I found on our front porch and sidewalk the next morning.

Tracks. We all leave them. And if you think your life is meaningless, it’s not. What you do or don’t do always affects someone else. Each life matters.

But it’s up to us to make a choice. As we pass through this time called life, will we leave tracks that impact another for good or negative ones? Will our tracks lead someone astray or give them guidance?

Choose your tracks wisely, so someone who comes upon them is encouraged or in some way helped by the path you led.

Make your tracks count.

“No one can pass through life, any more than he can pass through a bit of country, without leaving tracks behind, and those tracks may often be helpful to those coming after him in finding their way.” ~ Robert Baden-Powell

    • Yes, I have heard that saying especially when you’re out in nature. Oh, goodness, you have spring weather and we’re still in the throes of winter. Down into the 20’s (F) again tonight which I think is in the negative digits for you in C. Enjoy the nice weather for me, will you?


    • It truly does touch my heart when I read a comment from someone who feels inspired by my posts, so thank you so very much! I have caught a glimpse of that little fellow before the snowfalls. I just can’t figure out why that bunny likes coming up on our front porch!
