A story to tell

Fridays I fluctuate between Five Minute Fridays and InstaFriday. But we are all community here, right? They can be combined into one post.
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.
Topic: Write
handlettering, typography
Today's prompt couldn't have fallen on a better week. Wednesday, I wrote about the hand-lettering class I am taking and how we had to pick a quote that meant something to us. My quote: "We all have a Story to Tell."
We do, you know, have a story to tell.
Years ago, I wouldn't have thought so. My life its pretty average. I didn't have a huge crisis conquering event. I don't have a religious conversion story that transforms lives.
But then 10 years ago I had a child and while on bed rest, I worked on our family history and the stories our ancestors had. I loved find tidbits and snapshots of their lives, their story.
But I still didn't feel like I had a story of my own.
Then the fires came and I had a story to tell. A redemption story.
But it was from that story that I realized, I had a story to tell.
A story of the mundane, the average, the 'some days I feel like I am just getting by'.
The story of me, the one I want my daughter to hear. The story of us, the one that helps a friend get through the fires. The story of her, that brings comfort to another Mom struggling to just get by.
We all have a story to tell, so go tell yours. We want to hear it, we really do.
