Cherished {5 Minute Friday}


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 finger paint. For joy in the process. No matter how messy the result.

Got five minutes? Come and write with us! (<—Tweet this!)

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. That is like the one rule we all really care about. For reals.

OK, are you ready? I’ve had this word on my heart for you all week. Usually I’m wondering what the prompt will be right up until nearly midnight myself. But this week – this week I think a few of you at least need this word…




I’m going to start out here by telling you that this prompt was hard for me this week. Not even gonna lie.
Life has been a little crazy around here, if you visit often, you know what I;m talking about. 
So, for real….I don’t feel cherished. Like….At.All.
and often times in the midst of defiant kids, arguments about life choices and paths, sibling rivalry, parental differences, harsh words, sleepless nights, and so on…
I. Forget. to. cherish.
Cherish their sweet smile, their softened hearts when they come with an apology.
Cherish silly games of penny poker.
Watching the same movie for the 47th time (his week)
sweet compliments about the yummy dinner.
Mornings that run smoothly (and the evening prior that brought it)
I forget to cherish these little things that are oh so important, especially in the midst of chaos. (and around here, we have lots of chaos)
Cherished. By Him



Thanks for stopping in. Now write for your 5 minutes, then head on over to Lisa-Jo and link up!

  1. Oh I so know what you mean. I get caught up in grumpies and forget that every hug, every smile, everyrunning over to give me a hug is a MIRACLE. An absolute priceless gift from my Father in heaven.

    Thank you for this reminder!!!

  2. I loved this! You were very honest with what I sometimes call “the facts of life.” It just isn’t always fun and chaos doesn’t seem to end. So it’s those small moments we need to hold on to. Those small moments that bring us from one messy event to the next. 🙂

    Visiting from 5MF!
