On Fridays, Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama, gives a writing prompt and inspires fellow bloggers to write for five minutes. The rules are "no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking".
Five minutes is tough for me. I like to process my thoughts and then process my words to best voice my thoughts. But five minutes is good. Sometimes when one is short on time and pressured to produce, honesty can flow. The writing may not be polished but the real shines.
Today's word is OPPORTUNITY
We may not all have the same circumstances, the same opportunities, the same hardships, or the same blessings but we all have the same amount of time in our day.
24 hours. Oh, how I waste many of those hours.
A gift of time has been given to me, for each day IS a gift.
How will I use today? Will I use it productively? Will I in someway use this day to bless another?
Today, I will finally get the laundry folded. Today I will dig in the dirt. Today I will dance around the yard with the children. Today I will take the time to sit with a little one and read a book. Today I won't waste the moments. I will make the most of each minute that has been given me.
Today is a beautiful sunshiny day, the day after the rain. I welcome today.
