44. The Right Path
Anne, Margaret, and Roy arrived in the same car.  Anne came bounding over to the group. “It’s a girl!” She told us about her doctor visit, how supportive her mother was, and some of the names she was considering.  “I wasn’t supposed to be able to get pregnant,” she added. “Which, along with the wine, explains how I got this way.” She walked into the building, eager to share her news with Ms. Rella.

Margaret, who was leaning on Roy’s arm, had made her way to the steps by then.  She gestured to the door Anne had just walked through. “That girl hit a bend in the road just as she was ready to change direction in her life.  Except for worrying about crazy things, she’s over the moon happy.”

Today I will be grateful when life provides me a path I want to travel.
