The rules are
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Today’s word prompt is “Here”.
My timer is set.
Here I am with a baby in my lap. Wondering if I can have a few extra minutes for typing a little encumbered. But I won’t I’m sitting here thinking about why I am here.
I am here for a reason. There is a reason I choose to type. God gave me my beautiful family. I have many friends online and in real life.
I am happy here. I have my baby here sleeping in my arms. I like having my children here with me. Even when they try to distract or draw my attention from what I am doing here. I know they are the reason I am doing this. I remind myself of that and I stop and listen. If I am doing this for them then I can stop typing for them too.
But here in this moment I have five minutes of quiet granted to me by 5 of my 6 children and I type.
This is my second time to do Five Minute Friday. I did it in one take this time.
Now your turn. What are you doing “here”?Like
