Its been awhile since the last time I joined in on Lisa-Jo Baker’s Friday writing prompt. You can check out the others under “creative writing.”
Let me first say that I love Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog. She has been so inspirational and encouraging to me on my rough days of motherhood. She always seems to have just the right words to hit wherever I am at that moment. If you are feeling discouraged as a mother, I recommend checking out her posts.
And without further adieu here’s my five minutes of writing. Unscripted, unedited, unperfected.
They have their moments. They are brothers after all. But I am so grateful at how close they are. Together they find ways to entertain themselves, and each other. Together they can conquer the world. Together they can battle all the bad guys this planet has ever seen. Together they can do anything! Sure there are moments. Moments when that closeness has its downfalls. Moments when they wish that they weren’t so close. But there has never been a moment in their lives where I haven’t been grateful to have them be as close as they are.
I will never forget finding out that I was pregnant again. So soon! And it was basically 18 months of pregnancy. It was rough! I will not deny that. And there were days…oh there were days! That first year after T was born, that I wanted to simply curl up and be done. But I am so grateful that it worked the way that it did.
T and S are the best of friends. They are so close to one another and that makes my heart happy. They wouldn’t have the bond that they have if they weren’t so close in age. Sure they might have a great relationship. But I don’t think the bond would be as strong. Because they are so close, they do everything together. EVERYTHING. And I love it. I love that they need each other, that they want each other, that they love each other…that they are as close as any two siblings could be.
And I pray that it continues. I pray that they stay the best of friends. That they continue to be close through the years. Through the tears. Through the hardships. And through the joys. That they stand next to one another as the other gets married. And they snuggle their brother’s children. I pray that they call each other to say hi and that they make an effort to visit one another. I simply pray that they continue to be close.
I’m linking up! Be sure to stop by and check out what other bloggers have had to say about the prompt close.
