Wow... just SO MUCH FUN at the #FMFParty... It was SO fun that I am almost out of Words (and Hashtags!) ALMOST... not to worry!
First - the fine print if you don't know what FMF is! Five Minute Fridays are hosted by Lisa Jo Baker. It is open to anyone, so to learn more about it - and to jump in yourself (the more the merrier!) or just to find a linky to see what everyone is writing about today - click HERE! The idea is to simply write... for Five Minutes flat... no editing, no deep thinking - or at least REthinking, no spell check - just write! Let it flow! We all write using a prompt that Lisa posts at one minute past midnight Friday morning (EST.) I'm loving the community of amazing bloggers and the creativity that flows from these magical Five Minutes!
So - here goes: Five Minute Friday - HERE...
I love my home. Honestly - as much as I love to go
and get out and see the world at large
- normally there is nothing sweeter
than the coming Home...
the returning to Here...
We had a glorious Spring Break last week...
lots of travel and fun and great memories made
(and a TON of photo's!)...
We came home to unpack suitcases
only to have a house FILLED to the rim with family.
Blessings and Babies
...and Laughter and Love all around!
So. Much. Love.
Normally with the return of School comes the return of Routine
- which usually blesses this Mama's heart! I am a Day Planner girl
- and I love a bossy list that tells me what must get done.
This week, however, I have had a hard time settling back in;
not quite finding my groove.
I don't know if it is because the realization hit that
this was my 'last' Spring Break...
our girlie is turning 18 in a month,
and graduating in two...
and this was our last big hurrah!
As we prepare for her still undecided future,
we are learning to let go - so as not to tear apart.
She has been my Here... my focus... my life's calling...
for 18 years now (how is that even possible?)
- and we have grown her up to be one of our best friends.
(She is pretty freaking amazing!)
But - no matter where Home is
...for me, or for her, for us...
Home is HERE where my heart remains:
...this glorious heart-to-heart connection
that lives on beyond different addresses, zip codes,
and even - gasp - time zones.
Here - with my girlie, my friend...
My heart beating outside of my chest...
So - I didn't really see that one coming... but I made it through just in time for my 'Here' (my girlie) to get home from work and want to snuggle a bit... AND I (almost!) posted an entire Five Minute Friday post without mentioning #Nutella. Almost!
Speak Life, Be Love, Shine On!
Five Minute Fridays gives us the chance to dive right in and share what He puts on our hearts!
