It is what we do - together

When I first started dating my husband, about 20 years ago, we use to stroll up the mountain together chatting and getting to know eachother. I thought this guy must be crazy taking me out for a walk instead of the movies! It was just something he did. After we got married we began running up the mountain together. Well, he ran, I walked really fast after him. When I got pregnant, I walked up just about everymorning including the day he was born! Now, the three of us still make the trip up the mountain together. Its what we do. I hope my son will remember our trip up the mountain and be able to make his own memories at the mountain.

I lived at the foot of Mt. Rubidoux when my grandchildren were growing up. They loved going out my back gate directly onto the path up the hill, and taking that long walk upward. One day when my grandson was five, on one of those climbs, I became tired and wanted to go back down, he replied "No, Nana, I want to go all the way to the cross." The cymbalism was not lost to me. Naturally we ascended to the cross!
