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.
because sometimes saying "i love you" isn't enough.
perfect. beautiful. true.

Thanks Eric. They own my heart and I never realized what they would mean to me.
Beautiful! Happy Weekend!
Thank you Kimberly. They are easy to write about.
