Life Is A Story

I'm linking up today with Lisa-Jo for another Five-Minute Friday.

Topic for today: STORY

My life is a story. Part of the story I am living is something I never dreamed . . . never imagined would be part of me.

The story doesn't begin with what happened a year ago. The story doesn't begin the day that my husband and I said I Do or the day we started dating. The story doesn't begin with my first memory or the day my mother realized she was expecting baby #2.

What happened a year ago, however, has changed the course . . . the theme of how I thought my life was being written.

What happened a year ago was tragic . . . heart-wrenching . . . life changing.

What happened a year ago has taken who I was, who my husband and I were as a couple, my faith, and my role as a mother and started weaving in new fibers, different threads and textures. It has changed me. I can't remove those new threads without undoing everything that came before. And so, as much as everything hurts, I can't change any of it.

It has become a part of us. It has become a story that needs to be told.

It was always meant to be told.

It is a story that didn't begin a year ago or the day I took my first breath. It is a story that began with the creation of land and sea, light and night, woman and man.

Who am I not to share?



  1. It is hard to look back at those moments and say THAT---that right there is where I changed. Sadly we don't often have a choice in the matter. Hugs for what you have endured. Stopped over from 5Mf.

  2. I'm still struggling to figure out my story... maybe because I'm looking for the happy ending. Thanks for the reminder that it's all a part of my story...

  3. Love the image you found to go along with this wonderful outpouring of your heart! I often have to remind myself not to be so focused on the end goal that I miss the journey along the way! (also visiting from 5MF)
