Five Minute Friday on Tuesday: Grateful…

I know,  I know,  it is not Friday anymore,  I am way way late for linking up.  BUT!  I still want to join The Gypsy Mama,  so here goes:

Want to take five minutes with me and just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Here’s how we do it:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing.

2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my right side bar}

3. Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you. Every writer longs to feel heard.

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:



I am grateful to be alive.

I am grateful that my life has been spared when I didn’t know how to live and wanted to escapte the pain by ending my life
