A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Not too long ago I typed, as near as I could remember it, that quote from Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu on the Facebook wall of a friend. She had announced she had made it through her first day back at work, after taking leave to attend to the medical needs of her son.
I offered the quote as a sort of acknowledgement of support and encouragement.
I’ve always admired that quote.
