Adrionne

Last week, I went wandering.
Personally, I adore wandering.
When my body is in motion, my mind finds space to breathe. When my mind breathes, I find myself in zones of creativity, question, and conversation. And when those conversations happen, I have the opportunity to connect with more stories. Stories of Her.

On this particular day, I stepped into one of Town’s local thrift shops. The shop, a service of an incredible support system within the community, is always a pleasure to visit. The people within are beautifully unique and the deals can’t be beat, especially in the swirl of holiday budgets.

I was pleasantly surprised to glimpse another mama. Another woman. Another person journeying.

Meet Adrionne.

You’ve seen her. Her husband has helped you in the walk-in. You’ve smiled at her dark eyed children. You’ve not often stopped to chat. But whatever and whyever, she’s another gorgeous Her, walking in the midst of Story.

I asked. She accepted. And so the first question (What is the beauty you see in your life?) she replied, “My family. My kids. I absolutely think they are perfect…”.

The second question was interesting. It’s always interesting asking when you are the other (How do you think others see you?). She responded with, “It depends. Most see me as ‘the doctors wife’. That’s what I am. Other, those who are close to me, realize that I’m just married to a goofball! Most don’t even know who I am. I’m an average mom. No makeup. Dressed down. Pony tail.” 

The third question (What is your role in your story?) was answered with, “To raise and teach my children. To teach them something good! That’s one of my fears…. I want to guide them. That’s my role.”

Finally, the always-difficult fourth question. This one is my favorite, but it always proves a challenge. I took time to browse the store (you should too!) and then returned to her answer. At length, she replied, “Adrionne: the undercover {unassuming?} doctor’s wife.” I deep down loved that. And I look forward to discovering more of this story in the seasons to come
