With a reunion of my old volunteer work coming up, I'm forced to consider the path not taken. Many, many of my dear friends from that time of my life stuck with that area of work. I do miss it horribly at times. We are all exchanging updates via an online group in prep for an in person reunion. These are people that I'd pull 20 hour shifts with, we'd work hard and play hard. There are others, like me, that took another path. As I try to figure out what direction to go with my post-difficult child life, I look back to see if there is a path not taken that I may have the opportunity to travel again. But never again will I be 20-something with the world ahead of me and every option, a possibility.
