Turkey Tracks

This is the time of year we are thinking of turkeys. How many of you have seen wild turkeys?

This was a photo I took at the last 2018 winter snowfall we had. Wild turkeys tracked through my yard in that last snowfall. It was easy to follow them by the tracks they left behind.

It caused me to think, what tracks do we leave for people to follow? Where do we take them if they trust in us to follow? Do they feel the need to leave a trail of breadcrumbs or are they confident to keep walking in our tracks?

Will they benefit from the life experiences we’ve had? Are there lessons learned they can garner? And are we grateful for those tracks that we followed in the past that brought us here?

Happy Thanksgiving
