Each week, The Gypsy Mama hosts Five Minute Friday.
It's a chance to pour out our thoughts into a post without over-thinking, without worrying about grammar, spelling, or proper sentence construction (am I the only one who always worries about that?).
It's a time to take a prompt and dive deep into our souls and share our hearts.
Only five minutes to write and try to convey a small piece of truth straight from the heart to the keyboard and then to the readers.
For me, it's like letting you see me just as I've crawled out of bed.
Raw. Untouched. Real.
This week's prompt is: Still....
I still can't believe this was you.
This beautiful little baby. Tiny and new. You smelled better than anything in this world. Your skin was so soft and velvety, and I couldn't help but kiss you again and again. You cried a lot and never let me put you down.
I still wonder why I sometimes longed to put you down.
Now I want to hold that little baby forever. I wish I could go back in time and hold her once again.
I still can't believe how quickly time passed.
I still can't believe that small baby is now a little girl.
I still can't believe time can pass that quickly. How does time move so very fast? And why can't I slow it down, just for a day?
You filled me with awe and amazement the day you were born.
And you still fill me with awe and amazement each day, as you grow into a little girl. Independent. Sweet. Funny. Smart. Kind. Curious.
I still don't understand where 23 months and 13 days went.
But I have loved and cherished every minute. And I still do, every single day.
