Last week we took on the challenge of writing our life's memoir in six words - no more, no less.
And let me just say, you all had me laughing, crying, and wanting to know more. Ever since I started this blog, I have been amazed by each and every one of you - your strength, your resilience, your beauty, your passion. You each truly inspire me to be better.
Wish I could do it over
Because it was so great or because you would change so much?
Once was lost - now am found.
Oh Mad, your heart is so sweet.
Old soul trapped in blonde body.
You make me giggle.

Happy to be where I am.
I am happy you found your way here.
Girlhood. Womanhood. Wifehood. Motherhood. Changing experiences.
You are such a rock...so strong...amazing. Thank you for being you.
I was lost, now I'm found!
I am not where I need to be, but thank God I'm not where I use to be.
Jesus loves me, this I know.
Sweet. Absolutely sweet.
Finally able to survive without him.
Oh honey, even through all the hardships and the long road, you are where you are today because of your determination and strength. Be proud of yourself.
No regrets, just live it up
Can we go out of a margarita?

Don't condone divorce, but understand it.

Regrets, lies, deceit. God help me.
We all still love you. Sometimes life happens, but you are still a good person. And you still have choices.
They are my everything and more.
And I am sure you are theirs.
Successful, blessed because they love me.
You are such a strong woman. And you always make me laugh. You have challenged me to grow. We never wonder, "What is Hope4Grace thinking?" I LOVE that about you!
Married four, divorced three, Love one!
Oh my. I still am snickering. You are so precious. And your trucker is one BLESSED man.
Country girl took my buddy away!
You can have him every other weekend and we can share holidays.

I know you oh so well, and this is oh so true. I love you dad! Thanks for making me, me.
Two kids, my husband, perfect life.
Uhm, what about your womb-mate? Tell me if it was 8 words that I would have made the cut?
I'm very happy with my life!
Perfect. You are blessed.
reality of life not as expected
Oh so true. But I know you make it brighter.

Grace given, not deserved - Thank you!
Laura, you made me cry. This is oh-so-true. Especially when I was paralyzed.
Everyone thinks I'm happy; fooled them.
I know how you feel. Call me. We can go have Mexican. And take off our masks.
Love. Laugh. Lose. Cry. Live. Repeat.
And all before 9 am at my house.
wish i would have died instead
I cannot imagine. You are here for a reason. Make them proud.
It killed me when he died.
My 16yo son was found dead in January of this year. I don't know how or even what day it was that he died. I will never be able to find out so I will never know. I have to learn how to accept it and live with it for the rest of my life. How does a parent do that?
Chris, I am sending you hugs right now. I love you so much. Zach would be so proud of you. He is still very much a part of you. God seems to always pick his prettiest flowers first, huh? You are so amazing. Keep smiling, he would want that.Doris said...
want to do it all over
Oh Doris, I wanna hear your stories.
I have been blessed with much!
Your beautiful heart is one of them.
Okay, how can I possibly go after those? You all are AMAZING! Here are some I thought of, none of which I like:
At 32, finally realizing I'm beautiful.
Good intentions. Poor actions. Don't judge.
Never been lazy. Just like naps.

I'm a lover, not a fighter.
I struggled with these all week trying to think of SIX words for me. I think I finally can sum it up for you:
