My Five Minute Friday post is a little late I know. I am posting all the way over in England and my internal clock is a little out of whack. I’ve been up late and sleeping in to ridiculous times getting used to the change in time over here. Yesterday I went to a wedding for a friend of my husband’s and that was a great time. I will post more on that in the next couple of days. This week the topic for the Five Minute Friday post is favorite. You can head over to Kate Motaung’s page to check out other entries. Here’s my five minutes of uninterrupted, unedited writing on this week’s topic:
My family is my favorite thing. From the time I wake up every morning to the time I fall asleep I spend nearly every moment thinking about the people that I love. I ask myself, “Am I doing my best as a mother?”, “How can I make my husband happy today?” and I live my life to please the people I love. I can’t imagine life without my family.
I love my husband dearly. He makes me so very happy and treats me so well. He is a stand-up guy who puts friends and family first and does all he can to take care of those who mean the most to him. He is funny and intelligent, and had it not been for him in my life I don’t know where I’d be.
My daughter is such a fun-loving and affectionate girl. Last night at the wedding a good friend of my husband’s stood talking to me about Arianna and said of her, “You can’t train a child to be as gorgeous and confident as her. You’ve all been blessed.” I pray that she never loses her confidence. It’s so awesome how she can strike up a conversation with someone she just met or drag a 6’8″ giant to the dance floor during a wedding reception in another country.
In closing, if I had to pick two things to be stranded on an island with I would choose my husband and my daughter. These two are my favorites. I love them more than coffee, chocolate, and fruit combined. Sure, we might not survive long on an island without food, but we’d make memories and that’s what matters most to me.
