I thought it was either ironic or Providential that I photographed the picture of the “Road to Success” sign while on the way to one of Olivia’s basketball games and then met the gentlemen pictured above on the way home from that same game at a little McDonalds we stopped at to have dinner.

He told me that he had travelled from Missouri, picked up the little dog along the way, and was headed to West Virginia!  And he seemed as happy as anyone I’d ever met!

His bike was packed down with everything a person truly needs to survive, and he had a very happy little companion who was actually peacefully napping while I visited with the gentleman.

I couldn’t help but remember the sign I had photographed just an hour before and how different “success” is to different people.

Honestly, I’ve met very successful people in the eyes of the world who didn’t seem as happy as this little sweet man.

Makes me think about where my treasures are and what road I’m really on…..

Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.4But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
