it is Important to Remember

Five-Minute Friday

Today, I am linking up over at The Gypsy Mama for Five-Minute Friday.  This is where we  just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.  Hope to see you there.

When Seasons Change


It seems like yesterday, I was a child getting ready for my first day of school.  I was so small that the bus driver had to get out of the bus to help me on.  I blinked and the season changed.
Now I was a young child, getting into a fight with the school bully, simply because I refused to fight.  She thought she would make me, whether I wanted to or not.  One black eye later and many tears, I blinked and the season changed.
I was in Junior High school, with all it's ups and downs and ins and outs.  I wanted friends so much, but the other kids did not seem to like me.  We moved a lot, and I was always the new kid.  I was just trying to belong.  They called me frog and laughed at me.  I blinked and the season changed.
High school brought more loneliness, tears and a few friends.  I learned, l lived, I loved, I blinked and it was gone.
My life has been that way, every season has brought a new moment, a new year, a new person to experience the joys and pains, the hurt and tears, the happiness and laughter.  I was married, I had children, life was good, life was heartbreaking.  I learned that Heavenly Father really does love me.  He really is there.  He really will answer prayers.  I also learned that sometimes the answer is "no".  I know now that when I blink again, the season will change.  So I can hold on.  I can endure, I can rejoice.  I can know that no matter what happens, good or bad, the season will change. 


Now it is your turn.  What season are YOU in.   


  1. This is beautiful! "I learned that Heavenly Father really does love me. He really is there. He really will answer prayers. "

  2. It really does take just a blink, though I guess it doesn't feel like it at the time. :-) Your story sounds a lot like mine. Great post!

  3. Wonderful writing with that topic. I love your "blinks".

  4. what a neat link up idea, love what you wrote!

  5. It makes me sad that someone picked on you! You just tell me where they are and I'll go beat em up. I can be SUPER strong...for one punch. So I better make it a good one!
    Love you, girl. You inspire me every single day.

  6. I loved your five minute thoughts. Wow, the seasons do change and this post was one to think about.
    Blessings to you!

  7. My current season: trying to find grace when I don't really feel like it.

  8. Most of us do not experience being "popular". That belongs to the small minority. Most of us do not come from families that truly love, cherish and support us, that also belongs to only a few us. Most of us feel exceptional and alone at some point in our lives. There seems to be some important life lessons in that. Having said that, I would not have guessed that about you!!!
