On Friday's over at The Gypsy Mama, she encourages you to write for 5 minutes-free of editing, backtracking, and no over thinking. She gives the prompt and you write. It's a lovely freeing writing exercise that I love to join in with when I get the chance.
This week's prompt: Perspective
Let's begin shall we?
Perspective- Boy was mine changed this morning all through a simple email from my husband. He was letting me know about an event taking place on Monday that he would be going to, to support a fellow co worker and friend. This friend lost his son to a boating accident around this time last year and his parents are donating a bench to be placed in their grandson's memory in front of his elementary school on Monday. Trey wanted to go to show his support, and I love him for that.
I've been crying like a baby since receiving the email. Tears won't stop flowing. It gave me my perspective change, one that I probably needed. I've been praying and worrying so much about our own future, mainly financially because of dang house that won't sell.
In light of losing a child though, this house is pretty trivial. What our friends wouldn't give to have our worries and have their child back. Nothing can compare to that kind of loss. It's heart breaking. One day our house will sell-or not, but it's just a house, and so what if money gets tight God has always provided everything we need.
I'm looking at my own problems a little differently now.
I may have went over by one or two minutes lost track of time there. Can't wait to read what others are going to write!
