Everyone has an answer for the age-old, How in the hell did you GET HERE? question. We have all heard those profound and relatable “pivotal moment” stories from people who have triumphed against all odds, come what may. Stories well worn but never dull, told many times and in nuanced ways that carry so much weight, they never get old. Stories told by someone who has been through one big serious, or so many stages of hell, you just can’t miss a moment, knowing the heroine does make it through the tempest trials of her journey because she’s sitting right in front of you, intact, and full of life. Stories so remarkable and faith-filled, your own soul is sparked with the same hope, redemption, and courage.
I love it when someone tells me a story like that. They remind me of Miss Celie’s, “Dear God I’m Here” moment because we all come to those moments that are painful in coming, but more freeing every time they are remembered and retold, bringing with them a freedom that comes when you are finally able to truly love and be loved through them, especially when that someone is you.
Have a heaping helping of Compassion, and pass it on down the table.
There’s still room on your plate.
For each time the Truth seemed to hurt.
For each time compassion met you at the depth of your pain.
For every sacred moment you recognize in real time.
My story might be your medicine, and your story might be mine.
There’s more for you, Truthfairy.
