This is my second week writing unedited and un-reviewed for five minute Fridays.
If I understand it, I write for 5 minutes, with no editing or review.
Then post it back to gypsy mama, then to the one who sent it to me and encourage the rest of you to visit gypsy mama to see what this ls all about, then write for five minutes.
Of course this is a radical departure from my normal blog topics. And it’s a one time deal on Fridays.
So here goes.
Now, I’m 65, so my five minutess of aches is probably different from some of you whipper snappers out there in your 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s. I’m familiar with aches, I’m getting more and more of them the older I get. My first ache starts when I get out of bed in the morning. The back just doesn’t bend like it used to when I popped out of bed ready to his the ground running to whatever tasks or activities awaited me. My a.m. energy made Marie mad. She was the tortoise in the morning. She got cranked up about 10 a.m. What a wuss.
I can tolerate the aches and I’m really blessed because I don’t have a whole lot of health issues besides my aches. I’m recovered from open heart surgery last year and have more energy than when I was 30. So God has blessed me with good health. I think He allows the occasional aches just to remind me I’m not the spry guy I used to be.
I walk three or four days a week, work in the yard when the weather’s nice. The rest of the time I’m sitting right here at this keyboard listening for God to give me something to ssay or watching Law &Order and NCIS reruns. Ooops. Times up.
Why not give 5 minute Fridays a whirl? Writing for 5 minutes with time and topic constraints will show what you’re made of. :>) It’s challenging and fun and not as easy as it may sound. Just follow this link back to gypsy mama for all the details?
