31 Days of Surprise Endings

Welcome to 31 Days of Surprise Endings!

There have been so many times I've thought I was smart enough to know what was going to happen next.  I had a really fantastic plan.  I'd practiced.  I knew that person so well.  I was prepared.  But then, something happened.  Everything went wrong, or embarrassing, or... a million times better than I could ever have imagined.

Many of these are travel tales (because that's a huge part of my life), but there are also plenty of stories of day-to-day motherhood, marriage, and other relationships.  In everything I will tell here, though,  I think I learned something valuable: the true worth of a mother's prayers, the kindness of strangers in an unkind world, the hilarious humility that comes with communicating in a foreign language, what grace is, and so much more.

I'm so excited to share these experiences with you and hope that what I discovered can maybe help and encourage you with the surprises, the unexpected twists and turns, in your life as well.  Or at the very least, give you something to laugh at (me).

Please follow along, and let's talk about surprises!  I think this will be fun!
