Does anyone like feeling lost? Definitely not me! So when Kellan insisted on walking through a corn maze at a local farm I wasn't all that enthused. But I also figured we could take "the short way" and get through it quickly.
How silly of me! Corn mazes aren't designed to let you run through in a couple of minutes. You're supposed to enjoy feeling lost. Erik and Kellan loved it, calling out to each other and hiding around corners to jump out at me. I marched through the lanes, trying to find the fastest way out.
There's usually a platform to help you get reoriented with a bird's eye view of the whole maze. We stood on the platform and did just that. Then I had one of those moments. Even though life is full of twists and turns, and you can't always see where you're going, it's important to take a look at where you've been and look forward to what's ahead. Yes, was a cheesy thought, but it was authentic. It ended up being a really fun morning.
