Last week I had so much fun over at Five Minute Friday, I’m diving in for another dip. Here’s the deal, Lisa Jo gives us a topic to write on for 5 minutes…no major editing, no thinking too much…just writing and linking back to her site. And the topic this week…drum roll please…is: Beautiful
So many things in my crazy, messed-up world can be called beautiful…
…dishes done by someone else.
…a home-cooked meal I didn’t make.
…a long, cool shower on a squelching, hot day.
But today, my mind goes to beautiful yesterday.
~ The day was beginning too early. I heard the turn of his doorknob and knew my slumber was soon to end. Maybe if I keep my eyes closed he’ll move to Dad’s side of the bed instead.
I hear the soft, tender whisper, “Mom?” And my eyes open to beautiful…
Beautiful boy…Beautiful love…for there he stands; pull-up adorned, black cowboy hat with his adored Phantom mask and one white sock…too large for him and pulled up to his thigh.
Tiger and him have come to say, “Good morning!” Beautiful
