Dog Ear Some Pages

What is your story looking like these days?  If someone were reading your story, what facets of your life would cause tension within the reader?  What stories could you tell that would make the reader fall on the floor laughing?  Better yet, what is in your life right now that you enjoy experiencing first hand?  Bob Goff, founder of Restore International and whimsical figure from  A Million Miles In A Thousand Years wrote, “Make at least a couple pages in your life so good you’ll want to dog ear them.”

I just imagine a few pages within my story worn out.  I am talking about dog eared, creased, faded ink, coffee stained pages!   All because I keep returning to them to remember, learn, praise, and share with others.  Often those are the defining stories in our lives, maybe even the difficult ones.  We all need pages like that in our story.  We all need a community around us with such stories.  And in the end, what do those pages say about you?
