Her steps were slow and labored. We would walk through the grocery store together; she needed to lean on the shopping cart while I tried to go slow enough to stay beside her. It was hard to walk so slowly, but she was my mother, and it was good to stay by her side.
Her steps hadn’t always been so slow. With pigeon-toed stride, she stepped lively in her younger days. Those are the steps and days I like to remember. She walked a million miles around her kitchen, baking pies, cakes, cookies, coffee cakes, breads, rolls. She cooked up that many meals too. Her steps were given in love and service for those around her until she could no longer walk at all.
Now I see those footprints in my mind’s eye – footprints I want to emulate and walk in. Her life was one of complete devotion to her Lord and Savior. I believe she was walking hand in hand with Jesus all her life. If I follow her then I should have a closer walk with Him too. “Lord, help me to honor her and You as I follow in her precious pigeon-toed steps.”
