Five Minute Friday! As hostess Kate Motaung describes it in her post for today,
"We write. Free and fast, in five minutes flat."For more details, or to join in, click through the link at the very beginning of this post.
As you've probably deduced, the prompt for today is Visit.
My grandmother. One of my most-loved family members. I remember spending a lot of time with her when I was growing up. My sister and I spent many weekend nights at her house. We'd visit--still in our church clothes--every Sunday afternoon. Somewhere there's a picture of me, wearing my favorite dress and sitting on the brick edge of the porch in what I didn't realize was an immodest pose. (I was about ten years old.)
But kids grow up and move away and have their own lives. We now live about a 45-minute drive from my grandmother. I miss seeing her regularly, but our Saturdays are always busy and our Sundays are for going to church and resting. It's a weak excuse, I know.
Lately I've had an extra draw to see her. It's going to take most of a weekday and some extra effort, but she's so worth it. I want to tell her just how precious she is to me. I want to see her smile. I want to share our hearts.
Wow, that five minutes went fast! Have a great weekend, and I hope to see you next Friday!
