Five Minute Friday is a writing event that has hundreds of writers spending five minutes writing on the same topic and then sharing them at http://katemotaung.com/five-minute-friday/. This week's word is Long.
This has been a really long week so today's Five Minute Friday will be word association. My brain is that tired.
My hair is almost as long as my dress in the photo above (that's me on the right). Isn't my little sister cute?
This has been a very long week but I think I will make my deadline to get my 358 page journal to the printer on time. My long term goal of being better at my job seems closer with each journal successfully sent to the printer.
I long to spend time with friends. This weekend is my city's annual Oktoberfest, an outdoor festival that my "Tribe" attended together. Friends have moved away, life has taken some turns for others, I long for the days when life was simple for all of us and we had so few cares in the world.
Long is the list of shows on my DVR. I know that this is a first world problem but I do love TV and I need more hours in the day to enjoy my favorite past time. I long for retirement for more free time to read the books that I put off reading to empty my DVR.
Long are the weeds in my yard. Now that the temperatures are cooler, I really should be in outside working, before the long days of summer give way to the short days of winter.
I long to find my purpose in life. I long for my words to make a difference. I long to help someone through a difficult time in their life, just like other bloggers have helped me.
I long to make a Five Minute Friday post that is longer than this. I long to be a better writer.
I long to love God like He loves me and I long to be worthy of His love.
I long to Do the things I say I'm going to do. I long to be the person I want to be.
Long is the path to get me where I want to be but with every day that passes, I feel like it is getting shorter. That is what makes the long distance bearable and the journey so rewarding.
