Five Minute Friday- celebrate

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. 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 celebrate.

"Celebrate we will
because life is short but sweet for certain

Birthday parties and holidays
Families together
Balloons and cake and too much food
Smiles and childhood joy


"Celebrate we will
because life is short but sweet for certain

Engagements, weddings and new beginnings
Hospital visits and new arrivals
Tears of joy and anticipation
The start of it all


"Celebrate we will
because life is short but sweet for certain

But, for us
The best part of being us
Is finding a way to celebrate a little part of each day.

A welcome home celebration of hugs all around.
A Friday night family movie night, all snuggled and holding hands and can't get close enough because we made it through one more week celebration.
A Sunday morning gather around the island, eating pancakes and sending Olive Juice "I love yous" as many as possible because we love slow Sundays celebration.
A family,
finding ways to celebrate moments
big and small.

    Hi, I'm next to you at FMF. I like your post- it's so important as well as celebrating the big things to look for little moments to celebrate each day.

    1. childhood says:

      Thanks Carly, it's important to remember during the ups and downs of parenting, the crazy and loud, there is lots to celebrate and be thankful for.
