Following the Footsteps of 500 years of Pilgrims from Around the World
The kilometers, as well as the rocky 8 mile up hill climb today is starting to take its toll. Feet, ankles and low back are talking to me. But I’m not at all the only one sporting tape and support wraps. It’s a common sight among both young and old. Our pace is not by any means the fastest but surprisingly, not among the slowest either…yet! Mary-Kate and I are like the tortoise and the hare. We each take our own pace up the steepest hills. I may be slow but I keep on going! Calls of “Buen Camino” ring all day as walkers encourage each other.
The real reason we are here, spiritual connection, is never far from our minds. With morning, noon and evening prayers and stops near simple but beautiful chapels, one can never be far from thoughts of God’s goodness. We are surrounded by good people from all around the world with one common intention, to give glory to God. And we are all aware of those whose feet have trod these paths for 500 years before us.
Life is a journey filled with light, even in the darkness. For when the world is dark, the light shines the brightest. My name is Susan Sams Baggott. I have devoted my life to growing in the light and instilling it in others. This is for my children, family, friends, spiritual companions.

Praying the Lord gives you strength in your body and good rest when it’s time to rest. Enjoying the photos and seeing you with Mary-Kate.
Thank you for the timely blessing. It’s day four and you will see I’m writing about pain management today. Each day takes longer to recover.
