I had this post all ready to go on Friday – then life happened and I completely forgot that I didn’t post it. Found it in DRAFT mode. I knew I was looking for a picture of together. This week is “pictureless” – but close your eyes and picture yourself together with someone you love. Now that you have that picture here is my post.
Interesting how the words that are chosen from the Gypsy Mama seem to sink into my heart and soul. This week’s word is “together”.
Having spent the winter in Arizona we have been apart from our family and Canadian friends for 6 months with just short trips back. Yesterday we returned home thanks to our youngest daughter driving us after our airplane ride, along with our new 5 week old grandson.
Today we held an open house shower to welcome Bryce to this world and to help the work of our local pregnancy centre. The hugs I received from my friends can’t be measured. I feel that I have come home.
Next weekend all our family come here to join us in being together. We also celebrate April birthdays – 3 of them. I can’t wait to hug my children and grandchildren. It will be the first time we have all been together since February when we celebrated my Mom’s life. And Bryce has met the entire crew at once yet. This coming weekend will be the big hello.
I think God smiles when He sees us together and when we hug one another. It shows we care and that each person is special to us.
Thank you Lord for togetherness – for not wanting to exist alone but with each other.
I am tired and still in jet lag but happy to be home together again.
My five minutes are up. What do you think of when you hear the word – TOGETHER
If you want to join The Gypsy Mama in her Five Minute Fridays read below.
Here are the rules:
Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.
On Fridays we write like we believe we can fly. Won’t you join us? (<—Tweet this!)
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
