Five Minute Friday 'Small'

It's been a few weeks since I have participated in a FiveMinuteFriday. The word this week is 'small'. Five minutes to write what my heart thinks about the word small.


Grains of Sand

Ocean waves tumbling over tiny grains of sand and I feel small.

Looking at pictures today, thinking about you. Yesterday you were small like the children in the pictures. Now you are planning a wedding and I am realizing that it was over before it even started. I wish I could awaken these moments and gather them up into my bosom and live them again and again. Small moments, snatches of time frozen forever in these photos. Moments, they come in and go out, one small wave, one small breath. Breathe in, and I am cradling a newborn baby in my arms, so awkward and foreign it feels, breathe out and I am gasping to have just one more moment with the little girl vanished forever.

Waves crashing over sand castles unable to stop time I feel small.


A bit reflective today.



p.s.  I'm linking with Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Fridays over here.

p.s.s. A beautiful song: 'For My Child' by Christa Wells

It is amazing to see how fast children grow! I don't have any of my own, but I have seen my nieces and nephews morph before my eyes. I remember holding my nephew when he was only a few weeks old and changing diapers. I had the opportunity to spend some time with him recently and he is 9 and is almost as tall as I am.

Keep up the writing! #FMFPARTY
