Five Minute Friday: Here

Five Minute Friday
Here are the rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.

3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Here. That’s the prompt. Five minutes writing about here. All I can think of is here I am! Here I am, world! Look out!

I was a singer/actor/dancer by trade. Now I’m a mom of five with adoption and parenting and schooling written all over me. 23 years as a mom. 12 years as an adoptive mom to three. 18 years as a homeschooler. 25 years as a wife.

And here I am. Embarking on something new. For me. Discovering anew at age 50 that there is more life to be led. Many years of loving and growing and changing and renewing. 

Committing to blogging and connecting and learning. Boy, am I learning! Realizing that I have something to say and someone, somewhere needs to hear it. 50 years has brought me to here. The place where wounded hearts mend and break again. The woman God has designed me to be. New heights, new depths, new moments to be lived and cherished and lived again. 

I am here. And I like it!


  1. What a precious picture. I loved your response to here. Stopping by from Five minute Friday.

  2. I wanted to try this, but there’s some major stuff going on at my house today, that I can’t share on my blog. Sending you bloggy love though!

    You’re an amazing person, a great writer and a good parent! Thank you for being you!


  3. Love this!!
