Featured Five Minute Friday:
Here’s the deal. Five Minute Friday. You go find the little prompt at the wonderful Lisa-Jo’s blog, set the time and write for five minutes, and then just stop. Where you are, no edits, just publish raw words.

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..

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on the word:::


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? Well this beholder sees beauty so differently in this season of life.

Beauty is:

Uncontrolled laughter at nothing particularly funny.
Late night hugs from an adult child that still needs a “mommy.”
Holding hands, just because.
A kiss on the cheek or the forehead that conveys nothing more than I care.
Memories of times long past, but still so vivid.
Birds singing and squawking and bombing the neighborhood cats.
Sunrise/Sunset too often missed because the body is too tired.
Trips to the zoo to build more memories.
Faces of friends as their voices blend in worship and the joy found in singing the “old songs” that mean so much.
Love that is given without requesting anything more than the love be returned.

  1. Now what exactly is your current season?? Sounds a lot like mine! Lol!

    I loved all your reasons for Beauty, especially the one about the adult child. We just never get tired of that, do we???

    So nice to ‘meet’ you through FMF!

    Happy Friday,

    • Thanks for stopping by. Nice to meet you too! I’m widowed and looking at the next “phase” of my life. By the end of the year, both kids will be on their own (so to speak) and I want to see and be everything that God has for me. It’s a different place than I planned to be and a different view of what is truly beautiful in life!

  2. “Uncontrolled laughter at nothing particularly funny.”… yes, this is one that is often heard around our home! πŸ™‚ Loved your list today…. beautiful!
