I’ve been trying to walk everyday this past year . I have trails outside my door and I had told myself. ….I would Ride my bike or get a walk in everyday. …So this was my goal except for a couple of very cold days in January .
Today I left on my walk and asked for a little guidance about what I might need to know today. I’ve been struggling lately with the losses of great people and my beloved uncle and dog and now my Dads best friend passed last week .
Everyday for a year I have seen a man walking on the trails. He has Parkinson’s and his body bends over to the right . …but Still he walks everyday without fail. You can tell he is a tall man because even with his condition he is still taller than me at 5’8 .
Today I saw him and stopped him on the trail and told him I had seen him out there for a year. He said ~~oh yes 3-6 miles everyday come rain or shine. He told me he worked for the post office for 30 years and is now retired . He said his name is Fulton like the riverboat. 😄
I said you have really inspired me Mr. Fulton to exercise daily as you never miss a day.
He said yes. …
Walking is good for the soul.
Just you and God out here…..Working it out together.
I think it’s better than church he says.
I laughed and smiled and thanked him for the visit .☀️
I looked ahead of me and decided I better add a bit more mileage to my walks to keep up with Fulton. …
No excuses. Just get out there and walk and talk with God 🙏❤️☀️
