Today I am participating in Five Minute Friday, you can join in on the fun over at Gypsy Mama, the topic on this last Friday in December and 2011 is Open.

6:08 AM!


Open seems like a very fitting topic after the week we just had. We still have a Christmas gathering coming up this Saturday and will to continue to open gifts.

Isn’t it a struggle sometimes to plan, buy and wrap all of those gifts? As mothers, wives, daughters, friends we want to do it yet let’s be honest, it does take time, strength and money.

Is it the gifts I/we should open or something else? Our hearts to new people? Our homes to someone who needs? Our love to a situation that seems overbearing? Our minds to new adventures?

As I write this, that is the message that is coming through to me. Funny how these things work out, isn’t it? You join in a community of others and through them messages come through to you that you may not of taken the time to see.

Thanks, Gypsy Mama!
