Five Minute Friday~ Gather 3/6/15

I'm so happy to join with Kelly and the awesome, creative tribe of FMF writers.
Kelly's  word of the week:


 One boy’s huge chocolate- brown eyes peering over a splayed hand of Uno; the other’s pensive azure-blue eyes taking in a thick, juicy new novel. Sipping steaming hot cocoa following wintry sledding; icy lemonade following a summer bike ride. Bare, little boy feet slapping dewy grass at dusk on an early summer evening, catching and releasing fireflies, whoops of excitement uncontainable. 

They are there for each other, in one another's life.  Always.  Despite any harsh words sputtered,  they have their own to-be-awed bond: unspoken, understood, sublime, deep.
     Sitting side by side, one  grappling with a biology lab...... the other conquering ratios.  Immersed in Narnia, in recreating a favorite van Gogh, or in crafting an Egyptian pharaoh’s staff on a sun dappled deck hour after hour. Or just talking, sharing, shooting hoops.
I'm proud and happy and pray it will only get better.
