Linking up today for another Five Minute Friday! The word is whole and the timer is set for 5 minutes…
What would you do if you had the whole day to do whatever you wanted?
Natalie woke up early this morning, about 15 minutes before my alarm, and I brought her into bed with us. She cuddled up and fell back to sleep. I stared at her dark eyelashes against her rosy cheeks and relished the feel of her little hand tucked up against my neck.
If I had the whole day I would spend it with her.
And then my mom sent a (very timely) photo from a family vacation we took almost 5 years ago now. On an island, where it was sunny and warm, and the most important thing we had to decide was which beach to visit. My Dad and I built a sand lizard and we swam and read books under the shade of the trees.
If I had the whole day I would spend it outside somewhere warm and sunny.
Some days are better than others, that’s for sure, but still this day is a gift. And while I can’t make it somewhere warm and sunny today (it’s snowing outside!) and while I’m sitting at school as I type this missing my little girl, I will strive to make the most of each moment.
And I’ll look forward to tomorrow when I have another whole day to fill with new…
*Time is up!*
