Five Minute Friday : Story

Dear Life,

I have been gone awhile....and I am so sorry for that.  I was spending very important time with my family....watching my oldest graduate....and sending him off to Hawaii to go to college.  There are a lot of posts that I need to write about the last month, but for now I'm going to ease into blogging again with my favorite friday link up.

5 Minute Friday topic this week is: STORY


A few months ago I had an epiphany of sorts.  I realized that everyone has a story....
A reason for why they are where they are at in their life.
I realized that if we all took the time to maybe understand other people's stories, other people's heartache and joys, we could understand the differences we have with each other.
If we all took the time to talk to each other, to listen to each other without judging, and to really hear one another, we could hear someone else's life story. 
And understand.
Understand their pain, understand what shaped them, understand why there are emotional walls, understand why there has been differences of opinion, and instead of judging or being angry, just loving and appreciating the role that person has in your life.
Not expecting anything more than what he or she can give you.
But loving them regardless.
We all have a story.
We all have reasons we do things...
Or don't do things.
If everyone took the time to understand that...
The world would be a better place.
If we took the time to find out the story, to understand the person, life could possibly be a little easier to navigate. 
What's your story?


Five Minute Friday


  1. We do all have a story. I like this little piece of yours ... so I think you have a new blog reader! I can't wait to explore more!

  2. Hi Melissa, Thank you so much! :) I can't wait to get to know you more too! :)

  3. This might be trivial but
    I try to remember that there are stories behind to why people drive the way they do. It helps me not be judgmental and remain calm :) especially when they cut me off or have their blinkers on for eternity :)

    Everybody's gotta story.

    Thanks for sharing yours.


I love to hear my readers comments...please take the time to tell me what you think!
