Just (FMF Link up)


Linking up with http://www.Fiveminutefriday.com. (only on a Saturday) The rules are: set a timer and free write for five minutes on word prompt, then share.


Just one more chapter book to read aloud to my boys before tucking them in bed

Just one more day of playing games and exploring nature

Just one more opportunity to listen better

Just one more chance to love you better at each stage

Just one more conversation with my grandma

Just one more game of cards with you

Just one more visit with my friend

Just one more time to hear your laughter

Just one more chance to hug you

Just one more…

Feeling a bit old on this Free Write… Feeling the ache and longing I used to overhear in others, but did not understand. I love my present moment, and am excited for my future, but there are days, and people, and stages of life I long for just one more moment, one more do over, one more experience, one more conversation. But instead I will choose to be thankful, and realize those moments were more than just a moment, they were a whole lot of moments that make my now, and were so generous in that they still give me gifts, and memories that I have as treasures that cannot be taken away. I am thankful I did not miss out, but sometimes I just miss.
