On Your Own

“My world began on the way to school.”

As small children, our first experiences of the world beyond our families were at school – and even before that, on the way to school. Carrying our lunch box or our book bag, some of us walked through our neighborhood with our parents or friends. Others rode their bikes. Many of us boarded a big yellow school bus. A few of us were driven to school in cars.

What do you remember about walking or riding to school?

Think about how that early experience of leaving home for a place where you were “on your own” impacted who you are. For me, my bus ride from my suburban neighborhood through the country to a rural school developed my reverence for simple living and humble people. For you, the trip to school might have been a chance to talk things over with your mother or confide in a best friend – or to get into occasional trouble along the way!

Today, pull out those memories. Share the stories. Recognize how they helped you grow. Let them bless you with an understanding of how, even now, you are “on your own”!

When We Understand Ourselves, We Can Be a Blessing!
