Amusement parks have all sorts of rides ranging from gentle to terrifying. In the recent holiday, my daughter was curious about going on one of the more dangerous looking ones, but wouldn’t do so unless I went with her. She was nervous, but my presence, someone whom she trusted in, convinced her that those fears are misplaced.
It is a bit like that with life in general. Of course there are the slow merry go round episodes where we can venture alone and enjoy the ride, but the twisters and plungers lurk nearby and for them, we need the strength and company of a mate in who trust.
Today let’s remind ourselves and our mates whether the ride is relaxing or rough, delightful or disappointing, it will never be solitary. On this ride of our lives, we not alone.
