Five Minute Friday: Change

Since I forgot that yesterday was Friday -- I did this many times during the day. I actually forgot to blog my Five Minute Friday. So it's coming to you on Saturday. Enjoy! 

Five Minute FridayStart!

This past year has brought about a lot of change. Change in friendships, to including losing friendships over pride, maturity, etc. Hubby coming home from a deployment which requires change to our routine, adjustment to regular life -- once again. Homeschool starting back up which will bring about change in knowledge, growth in learning, and changing our perspective to ideas that we thought we already knew about. 


It happens. In everybody's life. Change happens. Jobs. Lifestyles. Children grow and change. 

Actually, I was just thinking how much our children have changed over the last year. Do they really have to grow up?? :( 

I have changed a lot over the last year. My priorities have changed. Sometimes it's easier to let go of something than to hold on. No matter how much that change has to happen, it can still hurts. It's not always fun. 

As you can probably see, losing that friendship did hurt, but it had to happen. Change happens. I would rather move forward than to sit still at idle and a friendship not go anywhere. This friendship is probably the one thing that has changed this year which has effected me the most; or maybe it is because it the most current event of change that has caused hurt? I don't know.

One other thing that has changed is my ability to craft. I am stepping outside the box and learning new things in crochet. It is so much fun! I will share the craft items that I make here, on my blog. 


Feel free to join the "flash writing mob" over here. From Lisa-Jo Baker's instructions: "Our most important requirement for participation: There’s really only one absolute, no ifs, ands or buts about it Five Minute Friday rule: you must 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."

Sweet! I'm not alone. I just learned about 5 Minute Friday today so I'm also on the "Writing on Saturday" program. Letting a friendship go is really hard, but I love your attitude of moving forward. That's where the magic happens. Have a great holiday weekend.

Aw... I hate that you lost a friend. It hurts :( I know what you mean about kids growing up. I just want to bottle them up right now because I love their ages (seven, five, and two).

@Jenni -- Friday was a busy day for us. My husband was off work, so it felt like a Saturday. But, I am still getting used to this "flash writing mob". I love it!! :)

@Denise -- Thank you!

@Kelly -- Losing a friend does hurt. I think what makes it hurt the most is that I thought we were a lot closer than I guess we were. Maybe her saying that I was "one of her best friends" kind of made me think that way. Oh well. Life does go on and I have grown from that incident. Moving forward is a good thing, right? :) And yes, our children grow up way too quickly. Isn't there at least a slow motion button we can press sometimes?? ;)

Have a wonderful weekend, ladies!!
