I'm trying something new today. I recently stumbled on this great Friday blog idea: Five Minute Friday over at The Gypsy Mama. For five minutes you write whatever comes to you on a particular topic without editing or revising. Fun! Feel free to join in! The topic this week is: Five Years Ago. Here I Go...
Five years ago there were just three of us: Kevin, baby Lukey and me. New mom, insecure, bouncing baby boy to raise. A little lonely, unsure of where tomorrow would take me, I tried my best to enjoy today. A flurry of museum trips, breakfast playdates in pjs, fingerpainting, blowing bubbles. The world was simple and full of giggles. And I, feeling like a teenager just entering high school, navigating the social circles of fellow new moms, wanted desperately to connect. Unsure of what to say or how to be, I yearned for that fellow mom friend, kindred spirit to open my heart with and gain acceptance. Connection. Friendship. Love and support. In the meantime sweet Kevin was the best substitute. Believing in me and lifting up all of my lonely insecure places as best he knew how.
There it is! That was fun. :)
Happy Friday everyone!
