When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Motherhood Should Come With....

Today, I am linking up at Gypsy Mama's for Five Minute Friday.
This is where we throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not.
For five minutes flat. The rules are easy.
  1. Write your heart out for five minutes and show us what you’ve got.
  2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to play along.
  3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and encourage the fellow five-minuter who linked up right before you.
Today, the prompt is: Motherhood should come with.....
Motherhood should come with fairy wings that open wide and get you everywhere you are supposed to be, on time and not a minute late.  The wings should be big enough to wrap a cold child in, and soft enough to wipe away tears and heal skinned knees and scraped elbows. 
The wings should come complete, with extra time in every day (when you twist a feather) so that you can get everything that needs doing accomplished and put away. 
Motherhood should come with a maid to do all the extra dishes and dirty laundry that seems to keep turning up even after you just finished the last load. 
Motherhood should come with extra arms to hold all that needs holding, extra words to say just the right thing in every situation, and an inate ability to know exactly what you should do to help your child in any situation.  
Motherhood should come with unending and unconditional love. 
A mother my not be able to do everything, but the one thing she can do is simply to love, no matter what.   A mother only holds a child for a short time, but she holds on to their hearts forever, just as they hold on to her's.
Now it is your turn. 
{Pretty please turn off word verification for the day to make this easier!}


  1. Such pretty imagery...those wings!

  2. Good job. I am not sure I could do better than that.

  3. Beautiful! Have a wonderful Mother's Day with your sweet family.

  4. Loved the thoughts and the picture.
    Blessings to you and have an awesome Mother's Day.

  5. Lovely. I just had to hug my little man. Nothing like hugging and being hugged by a thre year old. :)
