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.
The first time I saw her, she was just a tiny thing, wrapped in a blanket with a sweet little cap on her head covering her dark hair.
She had large expressive eyes that took in everything around her. I held her close, whispering loving words into her ears that only she could hear. Then I placed her carefully into my husband's arms. He held her close, while I hovered nearby. She never cried.
She is so loved. Our first granddaughter. She is growing into a bright young lady. Already at the top of her class in pre-school. She is so excited about learning. She gives me hope for a better future.
I miss her so much, as she lives far away on the other side of the United States, in Arizona, while I live in Florida. I don't see her often, but I love to talk to her on the phone. She calls me "NeNe", has from the moment she could speak. It's endearing.
She makes me want to be a better person.
