Five Minute Friday...If You Met Me

It's Friday again. I love Friday. For so many reasons: It means the end of another week; It means I can participate in 5 minute Friday (which I have come to enjoy very much); it means the weekend is here and that always brings something fun.

Today I am linking up with The Gypsy Mama for 5 Minute Friday. Do you have five minutes in your day? Why not spend it blogging. Take 5 minutes and write, using the topic provided by Gypsy Mama, no editing, and then link up with everyone else.

So here I go for this week

If you met me...


You would see a women that faces life and what it has to offer. No matter what happens. You might see a smile on my face that betrays how I am really feeling on the inside. I work very hard to make sure that smile is genuine, but sometimes it is in place to protect me from having to share my true feelings with people. I never thought I would be that person, the one who had to hide the pain. I wish I could share it with everyone I meet, but the truth is that not many people really want to be burdened with the truth.

I have great days, and I love life despite that pain I have suffered. If you met me you would also see my incredible love I have for my family; my wonderful husband and my daughter. What you would not see is the love I have for my daughter who is no longer with us.

You know what else comes to mind? If you met me in the grocery store you might see a semi-crazy coupon lady.


It always amazes me what comes to mind when you just write. I spent some time thinking about what I would write today on this topic, but when I actually sat down and spent the five minutes writing something entirely different came out. I love that. I love being able to have the freedom to write what ever I want. This is mostly for me and if you enjoy reading it, and it helps you in some way I am even happier.

Have a wonderful weekend.

If I met you in the grocery store and thought you were semi-crazy with coupons you would think I was totally crazy because I would try to follow you around discreetly to see how you do it. I'm a crazy-coupon lady wanna-be :)

What a beautiful post! I just want to give you a great big hug and tell you to tell it all to me....(and I feel that I, too, recognize that people don't want to hear and be burdened by the truth.)

But keep talking and writing my dear...I'll listen! ;)

Love you and this post. Made me cry. At first I was sad that you've had to experience such deep loss... Loss that now defines you, but then I thought of a line from Castle that has really stuck with me (I know... How profound to quote from a tv show at a moment like this!):

Girl: how do you ever get over it?
Beckett: you don't. Then one day you wake up and realize you don't mind carrying it around with you.

I'm 'glad' that My love for and grief over the loss of Emily comes with me, even when no one else knows, because our Emily is worth every bit of love we have for her and loving deeply is worth every bit of sorrow that we feel when we lose someone we love.

I'm so glad we had her for 10 hours and that we have her in our hearts forever. Love you sissy!
