What I Found On My Walk Down the Road: A Homemade Ladder


Children's ladder

What a reminder of my own childhood when we made homemade ladders, Tarzan swings, and even homemade skateboards and used trash can lids for sleds!  Most of these things didn’t work as intended, of course, but such fun we had!

This ladder was made by the boy who lives next door and actually has been propped up against the tree for quite a while now.   His sister had one of her own, but it broke and is gone now. Yesterday, when I was talking to the children, the neighbor boy put his foot on the lower rung of this ladder, and it broke.  Just like what used to happen to us when we were kids!

“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.”

― Jalaluddin Rumi
