Five Minute Friday: Weak

This week the topic for the Five Minute Friday link-up post is Weak. What is a link-up? Essentially a link-up is when you join other bloggers and write on a similar topic. You share your blog posts with one another and begin conversations via a host site. You can head over to Kate Motaung’s page to check out other entries from inspired bloggers. Here’s my five minutes of uninterrupted, unedited writing on this week’s topic:



I’m awakened by a phone call. That’s never a good sign.

My mind races to terrible places in the time it takes me to answer the call.

Who’s sick? What’s wrong?

I can sense it before I even hear a voice on the other end.

A stroke. My Grandpa.

I’m weak as they explain it all. He was rushed to the hospital.

And then I finally exhale as I hear the words, “He seems to be doing okay.”

It’s still news I didn’t want to hear.

My Grandpa (like all my other grandparents) is my hero.

He’s a fighter and he’s strong and he’s going to pull through.

I’m thankful today that we get more time with him.
