My Story // Week One


My story is of journeying, family, and faith.  Of small, gritty, but beautiful moments, laughing hard, being together, and messing up. 

Today's story was making mistakes, then realizing there's no need to get it right.  Today was gathering wood and making a crisp, crackling fire.  Today was making apple pie and lasagne. Today was arguing with eachother, then making up.  Today we enjoyed being together.  Today was watching the news even though we've already watched it twice.  And today was praying hard and asking God for help, because I know I can't do it alone. 

 Today.  It only lasted a moment.  It won't come back. I'm trying to grasp it, take hold of it, remember it.  It's a small, small moment yet it matters.  A lot.

For now, I'm going off to read kinfolk, get dressed in pj's and brush teeth, sleep, and pray.
