Five Minute Friday: FINISH

2 Comments

Every week a group of bloggers write for 5 minutes on a single topic and then link up together. For several years Lisa Jo Baker has hosted this writing on her blog. Starting August 8th it is going to be moving. But the spirit of the blogging will continue.

Although I only contribute on a hit and miss basis, I have been in love with the concept of 5 minute Friday, knowing that at least once a week I can come to a place to find a topic that is shared by hundreds of others, and I can delve into writing with very little thinking or planning. Simply what flies off of my fingertips.

If you are interested in participating, make sure to follow the link and check out what other bloggers have posted. And follow us as we make the transition to a new host!

Five Minute Friday

 

 

FINISH:

Its hard to finish things.

Sometimes finishing means that you have to leave something behind that you love. Something that you don’t want to leave behind.

We are about ready to finish another adventure.

As part of the military, we go where we are sent. Sometimes that means that we go to someplace fun while my husband is doing a training. And sometimes it means that we move to a place for several years that we really don’t want to live at.

We’ve loved living here.

We moved here in February. It was cold and snowy when we left Delaware. What a relief we felt getting to Mississippi to the sun, the warmth (it was in the 60s-70s!) and the water! But even getting here we knew it would be short lived.

And now, as July finishes up, and October quickly approaches, we prepare ourselves for our next step. To finish this short chapter of our lives.

We look forward to the new chapter. Finishing isn’t always a bad thing.

We are going to miss the water. The beach has been fun to visit and the water warm enough to play in.

I am going to miss the thunder storms. I love thunder storms! And the amount that we get here is far greater than any I have ever experienced.

We will miss the Hard Rock. Silly but my boys just love the “Guitar Restaurant.”

But its okay.

We will soon finish with our life here in Mississippi. But it will only mark the beginning of our life in Saint Louis!

I am a "domestic engineer" who enjoys dabbling in a variety of different artistic endeavors. I am blessed to be the wife of a wonderful man, and the mother of three handsome young men. These four men are the light of my life. Our life has a different set of challenges from many people, as we live the life of a military family, supporting my husband as he serves in the Air Force. The older boys are also Irish Twins, and are almost exactly 9 months apart. S was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2011, which has brought its own challenges. T was diagnosed with hypoglycemia in September 2012. We live a hard life but one we wouldn't trade for the world. This blog is a place for me to share our life stories, my creative experiments, links to various things that I discover online, and any random thoughts that I may have. Thanks for checking it out!

  1. I spent the first 20 years of my live in the same city and now, in the last 7 years, I have called 5 cities ‘my home’. Re-locating is never easy for me but the frequency at which I have been doing it, only makes me comfortable with each move.

    Hope you enjoy your stay at the new place.

      I grew up as a “military brat” and moved a lot over the years, as did my husband. So moving is nothing new for us. But it is still stressful, especially with children!

I love to hear what you are thinking!
