The Other Side of the Conversation

The Other Side of the Conversation

I stood in the entryway, and I told you he is gone.

I know what happened when you left.

The reality of words.

I’ve been on the other side of the conversation.

It’s okay.

I cried too.

Not for him, but for you.

I am a woman in my mid thirties figuring out how to balance an intense need for perfection with the reality of my own imperfections. The answer I am finding is grace.....and plenty of it.
As a mother of three, a teacher, a church planter, and a runner, I have many opportunities to practice giving myself and others the grace I need to survive.
