FMF: Story

It's Friday. One of my favorite writing days, because it's writing with abandon.  Free writing with Lisa-Jo Baker and encouragement and good reading with friends I've never met. 

FMF: Story

We all have a story  -lots of them.  I like to capture mine in pictures.  As I roam through photos from yesterday and yester-decade, I am reminded of the hundreds of stories that make up my life.

Little pictures- stories- completing a collage of life. 

Like this one- can you guess the story here? 

Lenny and Laverne aka Rex and Robin

You might guess a party- and you'd be right.  You might conclude we were having a good time.  And we were. Yep, at first glance, it looks like all fun and games. 

What you can't tell from this picture, the rest of the story, was that we had just found out my best friend had cancer.  We were together with her and her husband for a Sunday School party on this night, and while our smiles were big and our wigs were bad- the real story was one of sadness and uncertainty.  Not sure we'd have her for the next party.

Yes, we all have stories, and just like you can't tell it all from this picture, we can't know each other's full story without going past a first glance.

That old saying is true- we can't judge each other (the covers) until we've read the book (their stories).

Happy Friday y'all!
