Kimberlost

 

 

A couple of falls ago, I took a walk at Rainbow Bend park near the covered bridge in Ceylon, part of the Limberlost  swamp. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and I was having a grand time enjoying the beauty of my surroundings. I decided to get off of the marked path of the swamp and explore. There were some interesting things to see.  I wasn’t worried about getting lost but I was wrong. When I turned to head back, I became disoriented. I didn’t know which way to go. I was Kimberlost (my full name is Kimberly).

My phone had died earlier on the hike and I could feel panic set in.  It was crazy, here I was in the middle of the day; knowing I wasn’t far from home but I didn’t know how to get there. I envisioned myself being there at night and needing a rescue squad.  I prayed and tried my phone again. Miraculously it powered up! I called my husband fully expecting to get his voicemail, because he rarely has his phone with him, but by another miracle he answered.

All of his boy scout training paid off, he said “Kim follow the flow of the river and that will get you back. I will drive over there to make sure you make it.” I have to admit there were some moments I doubted his wisdom as I headed back, at times the way just didn’t feel right.  I didn’t want to trust but I had no other good options, I complied.  He was right. Soon, I was back on the recognized path. A blue heron appeared and flew down the path in front of me. He seemed to be saying, “Follow me, I will lead you home.” As I rounded the end of the trail my prince in a white Ford truck pulled up to make sure I made it. I was safely home.

This experience spoke to me about being lost.  It had been a long time since I had been lost. It was frightening to be so close to home but not know how to get there. I needed the support of Mike to get me home. Mike who was just a phone call away.  We at YSB Outpatient Therapy Services are this:  a phone call away.  A phone call to offer the support to get you back on the right path, when life has gotten you lost and you don’t know which way to go.  We provide services to youth, families, and adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, communication, and relationship concerns.
