On Fridays… we “shhhh” the inner critic and run freely with our words.  Allowing ourselves to exercise our free-flowing words with a one word prompt Then we join together and encourage each other – kind of like a Flashmob for Writers.


Five Minute Friday – 

Where do you struggle?
When will the pain end?

When does relief come?  What shape does it take?  What song does it sing?

When we love deeply ~ When we live our lives fully
There is always pain to encounter

Relief may come in the daily whispers of I love you 
It may come in the hugs
In the phone calls
In the comfort of family or a friend

Love deeply, live your life fully, hold a hand and embrace some relief
It is on its way

It comes to lift your spirit
To stand you up again
To help you to move on and move forward

It comes small and it comes big
And it arrives in a gentle whisper, or like a warm breath, or like a hand on the shoulder
Relief tells you it’s going to be ok

Relief is in the love you give and the love you receive
Embrace it

    Beautifully written. All things painful will come to an end it’s just a matter of when, but knowing that it is coming does help to soften the blow. Reading this helps to remind me what I have and to not look back but to keep moving forward.
