Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s write in shades of real and brave and unscripted.

Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.

2. Link back here and invite others to join in.

3. Go buck wild with encouragement for the five minuter who linked up before you.

This weeks prompt at The Gypsy Mama is When Seasons Change…

I have been writing a little heavier lately as the battle with the postpartum depression has been very intense.  I tried to return to work yesterday,  but that did not work at all.  I was in tears three times in the first 40 minutes, so now I am off from work a while longer.  I am disappointed as I have so much to do at work and really thought it would go well…

But I thought for today I would write a little more lightly.  The seasons are changing here.  I am loving the sweet beauty of the lilacs as they bloom and it is nice to hear my hubby saying he needs to mow the grass instead of how he needs to shovel snow,  but not everything is changing.

My oldest, Caitlyn, is much like her daddy in many ways.  One way she is like daddy and NOT mommy, is she likes to have her back scratched.  And it never seems to manage which season it is.  She will stand in front of you for as long as it takes to get her back scratched.  And she gives very good directions, go this way, now that, now down, now up, more, don’t stop.  Always wants her back scratched no matter which season!

What does your child like that is either like you or very different?

Survive til you Thrive!

  1. I'm sorry that you are having a rough time!!! These transistions can be so tough- even when you have been through it before. Glad to know that you are able to express yourself here.
    To answer your question, my baby boy is just like me- he is stubborn and he loves to make everyone else laugh. Love to see the good sides of my personality come out in my kids. Not such a great thing when I see the uglies!!!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today. My heart goes out to you in your struggle with post-partum depression. I know all too well what that can be like. I lifted you up in prayer today…
