Walking down the trail,
on a cloudy day,
with a gentle wind as her companion,
grateful for her moments of solitude in nature,
and grateful for this day,
she reminisces on her youth.
Then smiles at the memory of her free-spirited self
sharing a laugh with good friends
around a campfire.
Wonders when her little one will loose her desire
to have tantrums a few times a week,
and what kind of woman she will grow up to be.
Then her thoughts wander to her own future.
What will it be like?
Will it continue to be like this hiking trail, with all its curves and hills?
Or will it be nice and smooth like a walk on a sandy beach?
Or maybe a little of both?
Either way she knows all will be well.
