Five Minute Friday - Friend



It's time for the "Five Minute Friday" blogging post. The inspiration comes from Lisa Jo Baker


What you do is set your timer for five minutes and write whatever you want according to the prompt Lisa places on her blog every Friday. Then you go back, link your blog and give support to those who posted before you. And, we connect on Twitter with #FiveMinuteFriday.

Ready.
Set.
Go.





Friend

Friend. The word conjures up memories of joyful times. Carefree times. Girls' weekends at the beach. Shared jokes.

I don't have many "good" friends. Mostly because I have Bipolar Disorder and keeping up with friendships can be so exhausting at times I lose track.

Friend. You're the one who refuses to let me lose track. You I call "friend". I love you dearly. You don't give up on me when I am all but giving up on myself. You pull me out of my hibernating shell and keep me focused on the good in my life.

Friend. You listen. You are there. You come to visit when I'm alone and scared. You give of yourself.

Friend. Please don't ever leave me. I know I can be thoughtless at times an I'm so sorry. I know I let my disorder take over my life at times and for that I'm sorry. Thank you for being so understanding.

Friend. I thank God for friends like you. God has put you in my life for specific reasons and I'm so grateful for this. He knows what I need in a friend and has provided you.

Stop.

What a blessing to have true friends who are understanding and patient with something that must be so hard to have (I can only imagine). Blessings to you.

True friends are just there. I admire that you can do this Five Minute Friday challenge. I don't think I'd be able to type out 3 sentences under time pressure, much less something as moving as this. --Lisa
