You Can’t Choose What Happens to You, But You Can Choose How You Respond
Welcome to the Love Your Story podcast. Today is episode 80, which ends a 2-part series of interviews with Diane Butterfield. I’ve given this story 2 episodes because it’s long, it’s intense, and around every corner, there is another twist to the plot, another funeral, another dragon to be slain. If you’ve ever thought life was not fair, well…you’re in good company with today’s interviewee… If you’re just joining us, go back and listen to episode 79 first so you can get the first part of the story.
On her fridge, there’s a sign that says, “Fair is something you go to in the fall.” But one thing Diane is clear about is that while she is not in charge of what happens to her she is totally in charge of how she gets to act and react. In today’s episode we deal with suicide and finding your way forward when you find half your family in the cemetary. Stayed tuned for the rest of the story.
Tune into this series for her story of infertility, job loss, tragic car accidents and the loss of her children and her husband. But you’ll also hear about tender mercies, miracles, hope and perseverance that inspires.
