Taking the 5 minute Friday challenge today...
I love to hear stories. Big ones, meaningful ones, silly ones. Todd is a great story teller. Usually the tales become a little flashier each time, but he shares moment of his life with such enthusiasm that people are drawn in. It's fun to watch, even when I've heard the story before.
What typically draws people in to Todd's stories is the joy he has sharing them. Even though my life may not be filled with big flashy moments, it's still my story. I want to embrace it. Not compare or wish or regret or apologize. Just live my story. Listen to God for what's next. Share it with enthusiasm, joy and gratitude. And while I'm living my story, I want to listen to the stories of the people around me. They all matter.
