Five Minute Friday: Remember10:15 PM
Wow! It has been so long since I have written. Tonight I break the silence :) I was browsing through my blogs that I read and over at It Just Takes One I came across the five minute friday that Lisa-Jo Baker hosts! One writing prompt. Five minutes. Just write. No editing!
There is a first time for everything and this is what I came up with!
I watch the girls in my Bible study. Young, beautiful, vibrant young women who are so full of life. I am the only married on in the bunch and so I pause and remember...
It was just a few years ago. Many of the same girls. I had not yet met my husband and at times wondered if I ever would. I wondered if I would ever have children of my own. If I would ever be the head of the home.
Now I am.
But I remember...I remember the lonely nights. I remember the longing. I remember wishing that some guy any guy would notice me.
I remember girl talks with so many of the same girls in my living room now.
I remember movie nights.
I remember the tears.
I remember the laughter.
I remember the love.
Tonight I look around me and am thankful as I remember...
So many sweet memories.
So many sweet friends.
And I am thankful for the memories that are yet to be made.
