It’s time for another Five Minute Friday post, were we write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that Lisa Jo posts at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FMFParty from 10 pm – 12 am. It makes me tired but happy 🙂
- Check what the prompt is on Lisa Jo’s blog.
- Write a post in only five minutes on that topic on your blog.
- Link over at Lisa Jo’s and invite friends to join in!

The tick of the clock is both frustratingly slow and incredibly fast. The days rush by in a blur, same routine over and over again:
Daycare Drop Off
The clock races forward, days turn to weeks, months, and suddenly a year. A whole year since we welcomed our girl into the world. A whole year since I’ve had something to fight for at work, a purpose. A year of sleepless nights, laughter, joy, pain, heartache, love. It races by and before I know it I feel like I’m running behind.
This race of life is leaving me exhausted on the sidelines with no motivation. No words. No passion. And although I would like to think that I can control the scramble by buying another planner, being more organized, taking more control – I can’t.
The only thing that will help me win the race is rest.
I have to stop sprinting and start breathing. Creating margin around my family. Praying circles around the important things in my life that I don’t want to miss. These days can seem to take an eternity, but the years? This first year? I think I’ve missed a lot. And my heart hurts for those lost moments with my family.
So I’ll slow down. Pray for open doors, trust God to answer in His time. And until then? I think I might just try to walk this race.
