In Others’ Words: Plans
“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” ~John Lennon (1940-1980), English musician, singer & songwriter
If I told you what kind of life I’d planned for myself versus the life I’m living now …
Wait. Let me do just that.
Life I’d planned for myself: Single woman. Hotshot reporter for the Washington Post. Living in a fun apartment in the center of Washington, DC.
Life I’m living now: Married. Mom of four (and the fourth was my “quite a surprise caboose kiddo”). Proud owner of a journalism degree that gathered dust while I mastered motherhood. I had a lot to learn. I’ve lived on the East Coast. On the West Coast. In Turkey. On the Gulf Coast. And now, I live in the Rocky Mountains. Author of both nonfiction and (gasp!) fiction.
Those long-ago plans were tossed aside as I embraced what God brought my way. He must have laughed at the look of surprise on my face. If God keeps photo albums, the captions under my pictures are probably something like, “Got her again!” and “Stunned — but she’s gonna love this.”
