Someone once said, “If you don’t know where you’re from, you can’t know where you’re going.”
Simply put, that’s the inspiration for my blog’s title. I grew up down old Ford Road in rural Lafayette County, Missouri. It’s part of who I am; it’s part of my history. I have lots of great memories from my boyhood, and I hope that my own children will be blessed with fond memories of their own someday.
Time moves on as it should and we grow and learn. And we eventually begin to make a life and a history all our own. There’s much wisdom in learning from our past, and each new day is a chance to take that wisdom and to embrace whatever is next.
So, welcome to my personal blog, and thanks for stopping by. This is where I hope to share my thoughts along life’s journey. Feel free to leave your two cents worth also. I’m likely as opinionated as yourself or more, but I’m reasonable enough to admit I don’t have nearly as much figured out as I wish I did. Much of recorded history is the force of ideas and I anticipate the shared perspectives with an open mind. I’m sure we could each learn something from the other.
It’s nice to have crossed paths with you.
