And just like that, it’s Friday again! Not familiar with Five-Minute Friday? Find out more about it here.
Grasping for straws. Grasping a hand. Grasping a concept.
I think that one is my favorite. When the kids grasp something new, the look on their face as that lightbulb inside goes off, is priceless. They haven’t yet learned to mask that response and haven’t grown cynical about learning new things as us adults do at time. That look – that ‘I got it’ look is just awesome.
And here, with 3 minutes left to go on the clock, I am fresh out of ideas for this particular word. Last week, I actually chickened out of doing FMF because when I saw the word – Wide – nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing came to mind. This week I promised myself that no matter what the word was, I would sit down for five minutes and write SOMETHING about it.
Wait – perhaps, I have grasped and embraced the whole idea of FMF. Not to be intimidated by the challenge of writing whatever comes to mind, but to just sit down and write something that may not be perfect or elegant, but it is my words and my thoughts. And, it is just fine.
Geez, that was hard!
