It's Friday (YAY!) and I'm linking up with LisaJo Baker for 5 Minute Fridays. It's a wonderful writing exercise and an even better community! Come join us and be blessed! This weeks word is "Again."

Here are the "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..


I drag myself out of bed, again.
I pick out his clothes and go wake him up, my sweet son.
I tell him to comb his hair and brush his teeth.....again. (and again and again!)
I pull myself together and hopefully remember to brush my own teeth.
I go to work, make the money to pay the bills and put the food on the table.
I run home and settle into the hectic evening.
I make dinner, do laundry, pick up the house.....again.
We struggle through homework and practice the spelling words.
We splash through bath time and get everything ready for morning, again.

He asks me to tuck him in and give him another kiss and hug.
I snuggle in and cuddle him and love him.
I am so blessed that I get to do it again.
I love this boy of mine more than any words and I'd do it all again
Every. single. minute.


  1. So glad I found you through the 5 minute Friday thing! All those "again's" sounded so sweet to me, no matter how many times you have to do it. Love covers all, doesn't it! Glad to meet you today!

  2. This brought me back to a time when I was doing these same things again and again. Thanks for sharing. Rosanne

  4. Vicki, I'm honored to read your heart! Thank you for stopping by my li'l corner so I knew to visit.

  5. Vicki, I love your five-minute writes! I was shocked to read an older post about your husband. I am so sorry, Vicki. I will be praying for strength and divine comfort for you. Love to you and thank you for visiting my blog. Let me know how I can pray?
