Today I'm linking up to Lisa-Jo aka the gypsy mama, who chooses a topic every Friday and writes for five minutes.
Only five minutes
And the rule is that whatever you write about in that five minutes is what you posts. No editing your thoughts. Today, her topic choice is "ordinary....."
Ready. Set. Go......
Morning.....a gray cloudy sky, soft breeze in the air, a hint of possible rain. Calm. Cool. Quiet. There is a hint of autumn in the air. Nothing spectacular is promised, just a new day.
A phone call. A text message. A email from the husband or kids during the day. An everyday occurrences that sometimes catches me in the middle of something, but they are a constant. A reminder of the people in your life who you mean the world to, and they you.
Housework to do and errands to run. Laundry piled up. Mundane at best. But a reminder of a busy life. A life filled with purpose. A life that is needed. People depend on me.
The sound of a sewing machine humming steadily. A calming sound to the soul. A tool used for a purpose. Art in the form of a quilt taking shape. A gift for a family I may never meet. An extension of my heart.
A dog which shadows my every step. All day. Every day. A faithful companion. One glance into those brown eyes and you catch an all knowing look. One that pricks your senses, as if she knows far more than you could imagine. Comforting yet unnerving. A constant and loyal friend.
Ordinary? Most would say so. Spectacular? Not so much. Eye opening.....yes. When the ordinary evokes extraordinary feelings of self worth, contentment and happiness is when one knows they are exactly where they are meant to be.
