Bridging Transitions – Part Four {Working Transitions)

Picture it- 10 am on a Thursday morning. Most people my age, somewhere between no longer young and senior citizen, are at work. Not me. I’m sitting on my back deck wrapped in a blanket and drinking coffee.

It probably looks relaxing, and it is.

Today Is the Day to Believe What I Don’t Believe – A Guest Post by Kelly Smith

In that post, I explained how Liz Curtis Higgs said, “Your best story will happen in the next 10 minutes.” That quote inspired me. There was quite a buzz about it on Twitter and the quote maker herself, Liz Curtis Higgs, even wrote back to me about it. I was SO honored and I will admit, did a little fangirl dance. I love Liz Curtis Higgs so much. I also love my friend, Kelly Smith from Mrs. Disciple. Kelly graciously sent her “My Last 10 Minutes” story to share with you. I just love it when friends come over to share. Thank you, Kelly, you are welcome anytime.

I know you’re going to love this story just as much as I do.
