And then..... I'm thinking about getting that as a tattoo, or at least framed to hang on my wall. They are currently my two favorite words. Uttering that phrase with an inferred elipsis is such a great reminder that life is a book comprised of chapters. A chapter may come to a close, however, that's not the end of your story. I may have touched on this subject before but "and then" is definitely additional illumination for me. I've been walking around saying it all day.
Our story is not over until our book comes to an end. Every circumstance, especially the uncomfortable ones, I lace with a proverbial "and then". It helps.... Peace and love friends xoxo
