“The journey of a thousand miles begins with the one step.”  This is a world re-known quote by Lao Tzu.  It features time and time again to inspire people to begin anything they dream of doing, having or being by just taking that first step.

A couple of weeks ago, we too had this quote at the forefront of our minds when we started the visiting face book friends journey.

Except ours was a hug … followed by the giving of a card … from Brook.  Little did she understand what it was that we were even attempting to contemplate.  But it didn’t matter … her hug, her card, her grin welled up a tear in the eye to be a moment that will be remembered for the journey ahead.

In her own handwriting it read:

“To Breit and Cler I hope you have a safe trip. Love Brook”

It’s not often that I am lost for words.  And the reason for the face book messaging absence since that weekend, when it all began!

Card from BrookWell Brook, I intend on carrying your card with me to be with us for every visit we do.  A reminder that sometimes one doesn’t need to say one word when having a conversation.

To become a worldly possession.

Thank you.
