Five Minute Friday - Here

Friday is when a brave bunch decides to write for five minutes on the same topic and then share our thoughts over on Lisa-Jo Baker's blog. It's fun, and there's no right way to do it. Just write! Today's word is Here.


Right here is where I'm living, learning, growing. Right here is where I sleep and eat and clean. Here is where my husband and I have been building a life for almost four years and where we've had our share of ups and downs. Here is where my belongings are, here is where I park my car (when I have one). Here is where I entertain friends and family in a little room that we use for a living room, game room, party room AND my "office". Here is where I play with our dog. Here is where I attempt to cook. Here is where I read and pray and worry and laugh. Here is where I love.

You know that saying "home is where the heart is"? The here is where my family is, where my heart is, where I am for now. I won't always be here, nor do I want to be, but it's here for now.

Still here, staggering on
Through the impossible we remain 
I can breathe one more day
Still here, still fighting on
All we have is today
Find my way
To the beauty of one more day
Still here
