******************************

We had been jogging for an hour in a new park when we came across an unexpected bridge. It was in bad shape and unsafe so I became discouraged thinking that we would have to turn around and head another way. I liked the scenery on the other side and wanted to continue the way we were going.

Jan encouraged me to look around when she noted that the bridge wasn’t that high and if we looked to either side, we could see other bridges that were in better shape. One had the bottom part that we could swing across like a jungle gym.

Gathering my nerves of steel, I started to follow Jan across swinging from step to step. I was emboldened by how easy she made it look. The scenery on the other side was beautiful and I was glad that Jan had encouraged me to go on.
