Five Minute Friday: See

In case you haven't noticed, I'm in a bit of a blogging rut.  Things just haven't been clicking in my brain like they usually do so I have just stopped writing rather than pushing through and clicking the keys in defiance.  Well, no more of that.  What better way then to thaw the icy grip of writer's block than to just WRITE?  It won't always be the funny little witty quips so many have come to expect of me and it won't always be the poignant hallelujah moments others have taken to anticipate.  Even I don't know what to expect.

And we're starting here.

Five Minute Friday. 

Here are the rules as laid out by Lisa-Jo:

Basically, you set a timer for five minutes and just WRITE.  No editing, no stopping to second-guess yourself, just a free flow of your thoughts hitting paper....keyboard....whatever.  She gives the topic and then you just GO.   Then you link back to Lisa-Jo and invite others to join in.

Today's prompt is: SEE

I hope you get to be someone's knight in shining armor someday, kiddo.  With any luck, you'll be the one who changes the way she thinks about love and perhaps even the one who makes her feel like a princess for the very first time.  If your childhood temperament holds true, I see you being sensitive to her feelings, but stubborn to yield your desires for hers.  You long for approval and praise and you will be blind sighted when suddenly it is her opinion that matters to you the most.

Just promise me you'll still call me sometimes.  After all, mine was the first face you saw when you came into this world.  I know you'll never be the same once she enters your life, but I've never been the same since you entered mine.  You taught me what it means to be selfless and how to sacrifice.  You showed me a whole new kind of love that I never imagined possible.  Because of you, I see the world differently and I pray that someday you will hold the tiny one in your arms that changes everything.

And please God, let me around to see it when you find out first-hand what it's like to have to give a Time Out in the middle of the grocery store surrounded by broken glass and pickle juice.  Please.
