Three Friends Along the Way

By Jennifer Davis

Some of you may have read my April blog in which I tell the story of how “On My Way to Sixty…..I Lost My Mind!” It’s a much longer and more involved story than I can share in this forum but, as I told it again on yesterday, I had a new revelation.

The short version of the story is that one month before I turned 60 years of age, I was part of a yearlong leadership training class that required me to spend four night and five days in the Pisgah National Forest with the other participants. It was an Outward Bound adventure that was intended to focus on team building, trust, and leadership skills.

It was the only part of the yearlong training that was not optional and, in case no one has noticed, I am not an outdoor kind of girl. I wanted to be a part of that training so badly that I swallowed….well almost swallowed…my fear and off I went to the woods with 27 other people that I did not know. I truly thought I had lost my mind and I was convinced of that when we stepped off the vans into the middle of nowhere and told “girls to the right and boys to the left” if you needed to go to the bathroom.
