Because, as we all know, the most important rule of Five Minute Friday is leaving an encouraging comment for the person who linked up before you. So getting to feature one of your fine posts is like frosting as far as I’m concerned.
So, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.
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 me your best five minutes on:::



20 years ago I never imagined this day.

Abbie and Johanna at Shasta College Graduation
Last Friday night my two younger girls graduated from college together.

"They grew up so fast."
People always say that, but it seems like it has been 20 years of hurry up and wait.

The adventure we went through to get this photo will fad through the years,
But the grin on Abbie's face and the wonder in Johanna's is timeless.

Proudly they walked into the stadium...

(I must be honest...I stopped the clock for a hug.)

As they go on to imaginings that are far beyond my own,
As I encourage them off to University,
One thing I do not dwell on imagining...
No hugs in the morning.



  1. Ugh! What a beautiful and bittersweet thing! My oldest will be 13 next month, and time seems to be in hyperdrive. Praying that God will grant you peace and rest in your heart as you miss your beautiful girls.
