Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on care.
and my family,
and my work,
and our puppy,
and our home,
and your future,
and my future,
and our lives,
and finding happiness.
I care about it all.
It is what drives me.
These past few months, I have needed care.
Lots of care.
I have lost myself in stress and illness and stress and mess and stress.
I have lost my heart,
I have lost who I am.
And all I need is a little care to come back.
I always feel that love can fix the broken,
love can put it all back together.
Because we all break.
And it's why I am in the line of work I am.
It is why I decided to be family with you.
It is why I decided to parent.
Because I believe that taking care of each other is important and necessary and what keeps us all together.
I made a choice to care about you.
I decided to live this life with you.
And, I carry that weight with me.
I carry you with me.
I care for you, I will always care for you.
Hand in hand, we take care of each other.
