Five minute Friday - good

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 good.
Go.

There is so much good in you.
There is so much good in you that it brings out the good in me.
There is so much good in you that it shows me how much good there is in the world.
There is good in you.

And when your choices take you away from the good you have in you, I am shaken.
When your behavior doesn't match your heart, mine breaks.
When I become THAT mom, screaming, yelling, losing my mind, I have to remember not to kill the good in you.

When our days are tough, when we are never on the same page,
I have to remember the good in you,
I have to remember I am the nurturer of that good,
and I have to remember not to squelch it.

And when the good in your soul matches your words, your actions,
you fill my bucket so full, it spills.
And you shine.

I teach behavior, proper and appropriate.
I teach words, and manners.
I teach consequences for actions.
But the good in you, that's always been there.
That is all you.
Learn that the good in you is a light and make sure to shine it on yourself, and your family and others.

There is so much good in you that it brings out the good in me.

Stop.
