Just a short Five-Minute Friday post. On these posts, I follow the one-word prompt from Kate at Heading Home.

(You have a whole week to get your post up.)
It's pretty cool, and I find a new blog every week.
This week's one-word is "Truth".
My best friend is a real stickler for the truth. She will cut you out of her life if she catches you in a lie... maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but she won't trust you again. That lie will kick you in the shins for the rest of your relationship. I've seen it happen.
My husband is a great story-teller. He prefers to tell it the way it is funniest. He's popular on social media, and makes friends easily. When it counts, face to face, he's honest. He just has a fuzzy idea on the value of truth. It took me a while to get completely comfortable with that.
Which is best? Personally, I can't lie. Is that why I'm not nearly as popular as my husband on social media, and I struggle to make friends? I don't think so.
Truth is, I've gotten better at appreciating the moment for the moment. I'm trying to learn to accept things that happen and let go of the things that I only wished to happen. My will cannot change what is.
It might change the way I remember something happening, but the truth is, in fact, the truth. The truth is not what I over-analyze it to be even!
What is, is. I pray that it is right.
