What a fun night over on Twitter for the #fmfparty... lots of great encouragement, fun hashtags, prayers, and of course - talk of food!!! I love love love this Community of Writers who go all out in a FlashMob frenzy and write for Five Minutes flat on one word... it's so much fun! (Ya'll should join in!)
Anyway - here we go: Five Minute Friday - Our Word Prompt is: BECAUSE
I missed out on yesterday. All day long I was out of it... battling a painful headache and not able to get to anything on my Bossy List of Things To Do.
I had finally sat down to pray about this whole #Write31Days thing and was shocked at how loud and clear He spoke to my (ever so reluctant) heart about what to write on. I wrote earlier today actually... you can read that HERE.
All of that to say this: Today... I was behind, ya'll! I had a Bossy list from yesterday AND a Bossy list for today. (Plus, apparently, I have an entire series to think about now!)
As I was tackling the lists, one by one, crossing things off *like a Boss, my girlie texted me. I believe her text said something like this:
"Come overrr *kenny chesney voice"
I know, right? She's adorable! This is her first week back to college, and working full time and somehow she had the day off and was busy dealing with her own load of Bossy and she was ready for a break!
So... I dropped what I was doing, and ran right on over... because, of course!
Because, I'm an empty nester and my girlie has her own house now and she can call anyone but she still chooses to call me.
Because, as always - (well - almost always, anyway) when she calls - I come!
Because... she asked!
...and Oh how I pray that she never stops asking!
So we chatted over a cup of tea and she caught me up on her classes and homework and work work and all the things and then... we both had to get back to being productive and crossing things off and it still feels strange to get in a car and drive home... it still feels strange that Home is no longer where
* like a Boss... yeah, that one was just for you Kelly Mahalak! I miss you and I am praying for you, friend! Love you so!

Oh ...the fine print: if you don't know what FMF is! Five Minute Fridays have been hosted by Lisa Jo Baker. This week we start gathering over at Kate Motaung's. FMF 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 10pm Thursday night (EST.) I'm loving the community of amazing bloggers and the creativity that flows from these magical Five Minutes!
