What does Five Minute Friday mean? Quote from Lisa-Jo's website:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!
I will give it a try today.
When I think of home, the first thing that comes to mind is my son. More than anything else I want to give him a safe home, a haven where he always feels loved, protected, and welcome. A place where he can be just himself, without anyone judging him for his unfamiliar behaviour. I hope that when he is grown up he always remembers this house as his home where he felt comfy and protected.
Then I think about my other home, the one I left more than ten years ago. The one my heart still aches for on some days. My home town, the place I always said I would never leave. But then you meet you to-be-husband and you have to decide if never really is never. Or if you are brave and couragious and take the leap into the dark and the unknown and leave the town where you were born and raised. The house you grew up in, the friends you have known since elementary school and who stayed there because they love this town just as much as you do. And sometimes my heart hurts for that place, therefore I try to return as often as I can.
