Five Minute Friday: HOME
Home is the end of the week when he finally walks in the door from hours on the road and we’ve gotten through all the transitions, that some weeks take longer than others, and the kids are asleep and we finally have a moment to wrap our arms around each other and breathe.
As we do, it starts off out of sync, like our moments upon seeing each other again after our days apart. Soon, we begin to breathe together, in and out, light puffs of air evaporating above our heads.
And we try to hold the moment for as long as we can. But time and responsibilities and a new week force us out of rhythm again. Separately breathing yet longing to be together.
Perhaps this will just be a season. Maybe it will last longer. For now,we live for the moments when we can breathe together, a syncopated time.
Just the two of us, home.
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..Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification,it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!
