Yesterday the pigs got out.

Yesterday the pigs got out. We are all getting ready to go to work, school, the gym and get our day started and 10 year old Adam ran out back to feed our 5 pigs. After looking out the kitchen window, it was taking way longer than usual, I went out to check on him. There he was sitting on a stool crying while 2 of the pigs were running around. Totally helpless. Now, when a pig gets loose (since you all have experienced this, I’m sure) its hard to get it back in the pen by yourself. They like to run around and need to be guided on 3 sides to pointing them where to go and tap them on the shoulder to keep them focused and prod them along. After wiping some tears, Adam and I corralled the pigs and got them back where they needed to be. We walked back to the house with my arm around his shoulder more connected than we had been earlier that morning.
Sometimes in life the pigs get out, and our first reaction is to sit on a stool totally helpless. Remember, there are people there that want to help you and get you back on track. We don’t need to live life alone, doing everything by ourselves. There are people out there, guiding us on all sides tapping us on the shoulder and making sure we get back to where belong, because they care for you and want the best for you. You may relate to any person in this story, but know that which ever one you are your role is incredibly important. The journey begins…
