For each of these, there is a weekly prompt to write on. The rules for FMF are simple: write for 5 minutes, no overthinking, no over-editing.
The prompts are Patience & Prepare (Tuesday @ 10 & FMF, respectively):
That’s the word. That’s the feeling I’m not used to.
Content with how things are, in the moment.
But, in my contentment, I’m still always preparing – because there are great things I am looking forward to.
- Preparing for a trip to OK for time with family (and for a Garth Brooks concert date with momma)
- Preparing for graduation day (190 days & counting)
- Preparing to be a new – much lighter me. Proud of her reflection – able to tackle 300 stairs.
- Preparing for a possible change of scenery – a move to WA (or, maybe, elsewhere…) that is still a year out – if not more/ever.
And, in all of this, though these are things I want so much, I find my patience growing. I am able to take the steps as they come, not rushing (too far) ahead.
But, this is recent.
And, tonight, I discover, it’s because I am…
In my preparation, through my patience.
In His plan & where I am.
