"What would you grab, if you had to pack up your life in only minutes?" Jodi Picoult
The quote is from Jodi's book, The Storyteller. The novel is about two people who survived the holocaust, one a Jew, one a German soldier. It's a riveting book. Highly recommend it.
But this quote in particular makes me think...makes me wonder what I would do if I had only minutes to pack up my life. Without a doubt I know what I would take.....the things I couldn't live without, the things I'm most grateful for......
-My children, 'thing one' and 'thing two.' They fill up my heart and make life spectacular. Can't imagine life without them in it.
-My closest friends who pump me with life and are constants in wisdom, support and love.
-My memories of the happiest and fun times - hiking the woods, exploring other worlds, seeing the whales, goofing around with family and friends.....
-My writing. It's been my voice, how I've expressed myself and what I used to walk out of shame and into freedom.
-But mostly my faith - Faith is what changed my life in the first place. Faith is what gives me hope and reason to wake up each day with joy and expectancy. Faith trumps all else b/c without faith I couldn't live and with Faith I can soar above everything and anything.
What would you take guys if you had minutes to pack up your life....Happy Thursday!!!
