Love Story

It's 5 Minute Fridays over at The Gypsy Mama again. I glanced at the topic earlier in the day but didn't have time to sit down and write. I know, it's only 5 minutes, but that was what my morning looked like!

Now that I have a little more time I am ready for my 5 minutes of writing without thinking, without editing. This week's topic: Distance.


What do I think of when I hear the word distance?
-The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. (You would think I had just left math class!)
-Distance makes the heart grow fonder. (I don't know if this is true or not...seems like it's one of those things people say obligatorily when you are being forced into a long-distance relationship)).
-The lyric's to Cake's song "Going the Distance" pops into my head. (Thanks college roomy for your never ending stream of Cake playing during road trips!)

While you have now seen the random, inner-workings of my mind, I am no closer to a topic to write about for 5 minutes! Mostly distance makes me think of being apart from people I love. Right now that would apply to my parents who live two states away and who I can't just pop over and see at any given moment. That just depresses me. So I think I will leave you circling on my first thoughts instead.

All I can say is that I hope for all of your sake that the topic next week elicits something more meaningful on my end!

Time's Up!
Want to join in the fun? Head on over and link up at The Gypsy Mama:


  1. Visiting from the linkup. I agree about how hard it is be away from your parents. Distance took my thoughts there as well. As a military wife, I don't agree that distance makes the heart grow fonder. I've seen it work so many times the other way. I often say it'll make or break a relationship. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  2. I bet that as a military wife you have some pretty strong views on distance. Praying that your family stays strong through any future separations. Thanks for stopping by:)

  3. Hey Chrystal....thanks for stopping by. Distance from loved ones is never easy.


I sure love hearing from don't be shy, feel free to share what's on your heart!
