Hiker reaching out in excitement at reaching a view of Ama Dablam peak in Nepal.

The adventure of life is worth the journey.

Ama Dablam peak, called the “Mother’s Necklace.”

The mountain’s shape is reminiscent of a mother’s arms protecting her child. These past few years have been challenging, but also a reminder that life is precious, and life is worth the journey.

For the difficulty of the day-to-day struggles, when we take a moment to ponder the beautiful creation of life all around us, to slow down and reflect like a mother holder her child and wondering at the beauty that is this miracle of life, we can appreciate that yes, life is worth the journey, worth every step.

May your steps along your path stop every once in a while to appreciate the journey.
