"Brew" < #Write31Days >





This month, I'm joining  Write 31
writing off of a one word prompt for 
five minutes per day, much like  #fmf .
I'm thrilled to take part and hope my writing 
improves and deepens, given 
a "forced" appointment with my blogger draft daily!
                                                                    So here goes, in five: 


Brew
Hmmmmmm.......
Let's see, "brew" takes me back to our Adirondack mornings.
Those of only a month ago and those of decades ago...
Those lazy, blessedly schedule-less days....
Only to be filled with summery memory making,
however small, however insignificant.
In years to come, we'll look back
on what we thought was just an ordinary day
to find it a huge piece of our life, our family. 
The lake awaits and while we  fry and set picnic tables and toast and 
brew and sip and set out and
bake those special treats that we save for "our week,"
we   talk and reconnect and plan  the day...
the boating, the dock jumping, the fishing, 
the memories  lived,     
it seems the aromas, the coffee brewing,
the bacon sizzling, the comfortable burnt campfire
essence through hair and sweatshirts....
they  evoke  the things we might otherwise overlook.
The importance.....
the moments, the unhurried hours,
the days that rejuvenate souls
 and  repair relationships.
And we'll say as we leave the lake, 
We can't wait to come back.........
How many more months til we return?
 Those healing mountains.

 A few months ago, the idea was launched to compile the #fmf stories
 into a book, which was undertaken by one of our own, Susan,
sent countless hours organizing and readying the stories
for book form  (Thank you Susan!) 
and right now,
 The Five Minute Friday Book is available for purchase!

The book contains glimpses of hearts:
 many stories, many peeks into writers' souls,
 all written in five minutes flat.

~~ I'm honored that one of my stories is  included within~~ 

And here's the absolute, best part:
When you buy the book you're supporting 
two vital ministries in South Africa!



All profits from the book will be divided equally between 
two ministries in South Africa: 

So, grab the book, support essential ministries, enrich your life!
And join us for #FMF this Friday and every Friday!
