Everyone Has A Story

I'm standing holding a sign that has Abigail and the "Love My Detour" hashtagEveryone has a story and the most exciting part about your story is when you share your trials and how you’ve overcome you empower others who may be struggling. The ongoing process of living, enduring, conquering and sharing is what unites us and makes us stronger individually and collectively.

This post is part of the Why Not Wednesday feature for Amy Oestreicher’s #LoveMyDetour movement, celebrating the “beautiful detours” that unite us all.  Are you a Detourist?  Learn what a Detourist is here, and share your story here.
