The days and weeks fly by, don’t they? Here we are again. It’s one of my favorite times of the week. Many of us gather on Twitter in a big #fmfparty community, we take five minutes to free-write on a given one-word prompt, and we gather back together at Kate’s place to share and encourage.
I’d love it if you would join us. Even if you don’t have a blog. Try it on your own, or write your five minutes in the comments section below. I believe you’ll enjoy it too.
This week’s prompt (I’ve used it twice already!):
gather: to bring together or assemble from various places, sources, or people; collect gradually
It was a day of gathering.
I gathered details and made plans for a recognition event for work, and let me tell you, it’s like riding a bike for me. I can gather like a boss!
A friend and I gathered for a three-hour dinner tonight. It was wonderful to spend time with her… laughing, conversing, encouraging. Three hours of it. Yes, priceless.
When I arrived home, my husband, son and I gathered in the living room. We needed to have a face-to-face talk.
And when I logged in to Twitter, I soon found the announcement of the opportunity for many of us to gather in August in Nashville for the first ever Five Minute Friday Retreat (#fmfretreat)!
Really?? I could meet some of these wonderful online friends in person?? Most who I’ve instantly connected with? Who seem understand me, and my writing, and who encourage me the most in it??!! That sounds like a dream come true.
I’ve got to try to make this happen. But it’s happening over my 23rd wedding anniversary. We’ll see…
I doubt it’s going to be like this gathering from RAGBRAI last year, but it might be close. (I’ll can’t wait for that gathering too!)
It’s a beautiful word. I pray in the days to come you have an opportunity to gather with those you love and those you do life with!
I’m glad we can gather together here! You bless me by being here.
