Five Minute Friday: Together

It's Friday again. The word for this week is:



  One thing that I am so thankful for through all of our moves is that when I move I bring my 5 favorite people with me. In these 18 addresses that we've had over the last almost 13 years we've always been together. Our moves are not as difficult as they could be because we move together. I don't have to show up in a new town by myself.  I'm so grateful that, so far, it has always been the 6 of us and God. (Of course the first few moves there were less than 6 of us.)

We've had some difficult times this week. Friendships never look the same where ever you move. There have been tears and heartache. It's hard to watch my kids suffer. I am so thankful that we bring friends where ever we move. Life is so much better when lived... together.


 Want to write for 5 minutes too? Here's the prompt for this week:
"Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.
On Fridays we write with gusto, unselfconscious and flat out.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on: Together"
