I follow another blogger Lisa-Jo Baker and on Fridays, she does a "five minute Friday" asking us to write, unedited, for five minutes on one topic. The topic of this week, "write".

I write mainly for myself. It's calming to get the crazy that is in my head out. It's my quiet, it's my time. Being the mom of two little ones with a job that keeps me going full speed, I need this quiet time to reflect and remember what is important and what keeps me, well, me. I struggle finding words in person, but somehow, I feel like I connect with people in a different way this way, through writing.
But, I also write for them. I never realized how much I would love being a mom. I didn't know how many emotions would come pouring over me, and I need them to know what these years have meant to me. What having them has meant to me. I try and tell them as much as I can, but somehow, I find my words on a blank screen. Sometimes, looking into their big blue like daddy's eyes and saying "I love you" isn't enough. Sometimes I need more, because they mean more then all the I love yous.

That's why I write. It's what I do for me and I just love sharing it with all of you. My five minutes is up. Happy Friday.

    The first few sentences of our write blog is almost the same. It is a place where it is only me. While I may blog about the family it is still only me, my thoughts, and my words. I enjoyed reading this and knowing I am not alone.

      So true Angie. It's what I do for me, even though it is out there, being shared with others, it's my time. Thanks for visiting and understanding.
