Five Minute Friday: Back

Jumping on again to write about this week’s prompt!


I look back and see just how far I have come on this twisting road. I’m not sure yet whether I like where I have landed but I’m trusting the process. If I’m honest, there have been detours I downright dislike. I have a hard time remembering that this is not the end and that there is more to come.

I would like to think that I could have written a better story and that I know best. Though, I know that is not really true. Plus, the things I would have written may have had other hard (or harder?) outcomes. There is simply the tension of living without ever knowing what taking a different path would have brought along.

So, today, I look back and choose to find all the things I can be grateful for along the path that I am on…

A husband (though, not perfect, he sure cheers me on and is full of steady and adventure)

4 sweet babies with 3 under my roof

3 trips to South Africa (with hopefully lots more to come)

Other travels around the world such as Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Greece, Italy, England…not to mentions stateside travels (with hopefully more to come here too)

Time’s up…my list could get longer but I’ll stick to the rules.

Your turn! What would you write about Back?

  1. I often make gratitude lists to remember all the good things that have happened – I can feel a shift in my mind and heart when I focus on the abundance in my life.
    I enjoyed reading your thoughts and your bio – we must have been in South Africa around the same time. I can understand why you’d want to return again and again… 🙂

  2. I agree – some of the detours I would definitely write better IF I could go back…but I will admit that some of the detours have been the most exciting and/or full of the biggest blessings! Hope those future trips to South America take place!!
