5 minute friday-Gift

Welcome to 5 minute friday, where we go to South Africa, through the blogosphere to join The Gypsy Mama to write for 5 whole minutes. We don’t worry about getting it just right. We just type to our little heart’s content.
Today’s word is :Gift.
I was a gift to my parents. They had lost many babies and wanted one that would live. They got one. Now, I have three gifts: my patient husband (and believe me, it takes patience to live with me), my sweet Stephanie and my sweet Anna. What do I say about them. I didn’t do anything special to receive them. God just saw fit to reward me with them.
I often am speechless when someone compliments me on what good children I have. And when I see them engage in a conversation with a grown-up, I am proud. That’s where the real test comes in-when they interact with adults not part of the family.
Now it’s your turn. What gifts have you been given? What gifts have you given? Tell me. Really. I want to know.


5 minute friday-I Like My Music Loud!

Hey, y’all! Guess what?! My daddy subscribed to my blog. Yayyyyyyy!
Anyway, how is your weekend going? Do you plan on seeing the movie “The Hunger Games”? Have you read the books?
I know I’m a day late but I’m gonna pretend it Friday for 5 minutes. Wanna join me? We write for 5 minutes, not worrying about grammar or spelling, or even typo’s. Then, we link up to The Gypsy Mama, who was having a problem with her linky tool yesterday, but hopefully it’s fixed. If it doesn’t work, you can just put your post in her comment box.
Are you ready for today’s challenge? Here we go…
“Do whatcha whatcha want
If you have a dream for better”
That’s the lyrics to a song on Evanescence’s new album. I listened to it 3 times in a row. I like my music loud. I love music. It runs in my blood on both sides of my family.
“I will wander til the end of time
Torn away from you”
Another Evanescence song that I have listened to and learned over the past week, playing it loud, so I can sing along with Amy Lee, who has a powerful voice. I love her voice and you can hear that she loves what she does in her songs. It’s infecting.
Do you like your music loud?
Last night, Terry was playing Pearl Jan loud and jamming along, partly because Anna was in the car with us, going to see “The Hunger Games” and she said she hates them. So what does a good father do? He turns it up and sings along. 🙂
Do you have any thoughts on Loud? You can still put them down and send them to me or the gypsy mama. Go ahead. It won’t hurt…too much. 🙂

5 minute friday-Brave

Hello, all. Happy Saturday? How’s your day going? Have you had a chance to rest? Are you shaking your head or nodding your head in answer to my questions? I hope so.
On Fridays, I hook up with The Gypsy Mama for a writing exercise called 5 minute friday. Won’t you join me? The rules are simple: write for 5 minutes, no checking to see if it’s just right and use Lisa Jo’s linky tool to add your post to her web page. Today’s word: Brave
I did something brave, this week. I went to the doctor for a check-up. I had my blood tested and had an EKG done. The blood was for cholesterol and stuff like that. The EKG was routine, since I have started a new medicine, to make sure I don’t have a heart murmur, or something like that.
The results turned out better than I feared. My cholesterol wasn’t very high. Just 6 points, my triglycerides weren’t as high as I feared either.
My heart is fine and it is safe for me to be on this medicine. Goodie!
Are you brave? Did you do something brave this week? Or is there something brave you need to do? Do you need to be more brave or are you too brave? Give me your thoughts.

5 minute friday-If I Knew I Could

Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not. Here’s how we do it:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing or tweaking.

2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my right side bar}

3. Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you. Every writer longs to feel heard. {And if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to leave you some encouragement}

It’s a great way to exhale at the end of a beautiful week. (more…)
