I’m joining Lisa-Jo Baker and many other writers who take five minutes out of their day to just write without worrying about it being just right. Lisa-Jo gives us the prompt, and then we write. It’s been awhile, um, two months, since I’ve participated. I’m happy to be back.
This week: STORY.
He slips into my bed before I’m ready to get up. So we snuggle. I’m usually in and out of sleep. On the best mornings, he falls back asleep too. This morning he nudged me awake and then said, “Momma, let’s talk.” So we talked. About a recent visit to Grandmom’s. About swimming. About our day. He tells stories I already know about the bear pooping while we were watching him swim at the zoo or the big gorilla who peed for a long time.
My girl tells stories too. She’s a little slower waking up in the morning and appreciates the quiet like I do. But when she’s on, she’s on. She makes up stories. She retells stories from movies. She reads stories out loud. She asks me to tell her stories.
My husband likes to tell stories from his childhood. My kids already have their favorites. You can imagine in a family of four extroverts, there are many stories.
I believe God is the author of them all. Just read my blog’s tagline: Seeking God as the author of every story. My entrepreneur husband, my first-grade girl who never forgets, and my have-no-fear preschool boy are my favorite characters in my story. The way God made us a family remains my favorite chapter. Our life is a story that continues to unfold with plenty of adventure and plot twists.
