Five Minute Friday - say

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 say.

When I said hello to you, I opened up my world and I chose bigger.
When I said hello to you, I said hello to motherhood, and I chose bigger.
When I say I love you, I mean I love you down to my toes.
When I say I picked this life, I mean it, I picked you all.

When we said goodbye to you, it was the hardest day of our adult lives.
We held you as you took your last breath, and we knew that we loved you as hard as we could for as long as we could and it was time.
When I say I love you, I mean I love you down to my toes.

When we said goodbye to you, it was harder than we had imagined.
Leading up to your end was beyond complicated and heartbreaking.
But once again grief shows us that love was there. Love was present and for that, we are grateful.
When I say I love you, I mean it. I loved you and I tried for you.

When I say that family just shows up, I mean it.
We feel each other and we are just there.
We don't need to ask, we just show up.
And when I say that I love you for it, I mean it.

When I say that I love my work, I mean it.
In fact, for most of my life, all I was work.
All I thought about, fought for, and became.
I love my work so much that I needed to walk away, start again, and learn from my mistakes.
But when I say I love to work and I love my work, I mean it.
When I say I love you, I mean I love you down to my toes.

When I say that I do work on myself, I mean it.
I stake stock, I look at who I was, am, becoming.
I ask if I am headed in the direction I want.
I ask if my heart feels fulfilled. I ask others around me about me.
I take too much responsibility and I live in constant extremes.
When I say I am a work in process, I mean it.

I don't always say what I mean. I'm too meek for that.
I don't always mean what I say. I'm too quick to anger for that.
But when I say I love you, I mean down to my toes.
It does not matter who you are, if I say I love you, I mean it.
Down to my toes. I picked you. I want you in my life. I want to be a part of yours.
When I say I love you, I mean down to my toes. I mean it.
