This road means so much to me. For my whole life, my mom’s life, her parents and grandparents life, this road passed by their home in rural Iowa. Sitting in, what is now my cousin’s, front yard we have years of memories of family gatherings, exploration, adventure and connection. To bring my boys here, so they can create their own memories, is so unbelievable to me. We can share our memories all we want, but really it is more meaningful for them to make their own.
This road. This story. My boys on their journey. Their road. I need to just close my eyes a minute and soak all that beauty in.
