Five minute Friday (on Sunday)

So as I was hopping around blogs I found this FANTASTIC blog that hosts "Five Minute Friday" every week.  These are her rules


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..


And I am excited about this!   Right up my alley!  Yes...I understand it's Sunday.  But the linky is still up...which means better late than never right?  Besides..you all miss my witty remarks! :)


The prompt this week was Path.  So....here goes!


READY....GO


PATH


Once....while much younger....I thought the path to life was simple...straight forward.
The older I got, the wiser I got.
The path got curvy.
With each child the path seemed to take different twists and turns.
The path straightened out at times...and that's what we call the easy years.
You know....when things seems to be smooth sailing....
By the time baby boy number five came along our path went down a cliff.....
And yet we were able to find our way again...we found the path.
This path of ours....it has led us to extreme joy....and painful heartache.  
And now....this very year...this very week....this path dips again.
I send my oldest son off to college....not down the street...but to an island in the pacific.
I will miss him dearly.
His path is starting.
That is so strange to think of.
His path is just beginning....to him it is simple....straight forward.
I can't wait to see what twists and turns his path takes.
I hope he remembers that I will always be there.




STOP




Wow...that was awesome.....so fun!  I highly recommend writing this way!

  3. The winding paths that life leads us on. Not easy to watch a child leave the "nest" but how exciting to watch where his path leads him!
