five minute friday - Path

Joining with The Gypsy Mama's group today to write for five minutes without editing on the topic "path."

Go.

Right now my two boys sit on the living room floor making a path out of brio train tracks. My youngest just pulls things out of the train basket while my oldest creates and destroys and creates again a path for his trains and cars.  He doesn't have very many tracks in his set yet, but I remember his uncle, my brother, creating paths all over the house, when he was just a couple of years older than what Bubby is now.


Who would have thought our paths would take us where we are now? My brother became a numbers guy - a responsible fellow with a wife and dog fixing up a house in our hometown after a brief stint in a town he swore he would never visit, let alone live in. My path went through some stops in various places, and is currently stopped in the land of mommy-hood.
I look at my babies with their wooden toys sprawled out before them, and I wonder, what does the future hold for them? For their friendship? For their education? What paths will be paved in front of their feet?

Stop.
