Last week, I answered the Gypsy Mama’s 5 Minute Friday prompt: When I look in the mirror, I see….
This week, Lisa-Jo, gives us another lovely, heart stirring prompt: I feel most loved when….
To participate, all you have to do is write down your answer to the prompt in 5 minutes. No major editing, revising, or unnecessary bleeding on to the finished piece(although, even as an English teacher, I never used red ink to “bleed” over students’ papers. I always used purple. Just saying for clarification). Then, link your post up on Lisa-Jo’s blog.
Easy, right? Or should it be write? Can you tell I’m feeling a bit punny this morning?
I feel most loved when….
I rub the tired morning out of my eyes, walk fifteen steps to rouse sleeping children for school. The new day opens with freshly ground coffee, muffled grunts of sleeping dogs, and the rushing around sounds of two sleepy children. Routine school day mornings with missing socks, school folders, and wet tennis shoes.
Alone, sitting at the computer writing, writing, writing. Always writing for others, for me, for you. Writing brings us together. Your comments strengthen me, encourage, challenge. I feel the love streaming through my virtual village. Prayers said, words of encouragement offered in 140 characters or less, kindness radiating outward from a computer screen.
Dark, quiet evenings curled up on the tan sofa. One Redneck Romeo and me. We talk, listen, laugh. Television provides a tool for conversations, or it goes quiet. Sometimes, we lie in the stillness and snore. Together…I feel most loved when we are together.
How would you answer the prompt: I feel most loved when…?
