Five Minute Fridays

Five Minute Friday: See

Friday, June 01, 2012

I have to start this post with I'm so glad it is Friday! It's not like this week was horrible, but for some reason I'm so ready for the weekend. And now onto writing for five minutes - just writing, no perfecting or worrying about what someone else might think about my thoughts, just writing.

Wanna join the fun on Fridays?


Right now in this moment I see two things - at least 5 clumps of dog fur on my wooden dining room floor and the gray rain clouds that are keeping the sun from shining.

The clumps of fur have become the bane of my existence since I started staying home with my boys every day. They are always there. No matter when I sweep or brush the dog. I just have to sit for on minute and suddenly a clump of fur just appears. Frustrating!

And the rain clouds - so gray, so gloomy. Even the rain droplets on the window don't add anything great - no special reflection because the sun isn't shining through them.

Why do these little things stand out? Why can't I see the gorgeous original hardwood floors in the dining room like so many guests have commented on? Why can't I see the rain that will help my garden grow and keep me from needing to water it today?

Nope instead I see the clumps of fur and the gray clouds that keep the sun from shining.

Maybe tomorrow I'll see the gorgeous wood floors and the great useful rain that keeps me from watering the garden. But not today.

- Major General Daniel Butterfield
Day is done...
Gone the sun
From the lake...
From the hills...
From the sky.
All is well...
Safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light....
Dims the sight
And a star....
Gems the sky....
Gleaming bright
From afar....
Drawing nigh

I hope you take a moment to thank those who have served to keep this country's freedoms and pray for those who gave the ultimate gift to their country this Memorial Day.
