Five Minute Friday: Remember.

It's time for another Five Minute Friday
It's a Gypsy-Mama thing, and it's a good one. 

Here are the rules.

If you have a blog--you should so do it. If you don't have a blog, you should do it anyway. Just sayin'.

It's Five Minutes of pure blog adrenaline.

Five minutes of writing on one word. Period. No editing. No nothing. No pressure. No stress.

This week's prompt is Remember.

Ready? Set.



Things I need to Remember:
...maybe you do, too...

Don't leave the house without an emergency snack. 
(Hungry ---> Angry = Hangry)

God is gracious to give me who I need, when I need them. 

Spouse is into me. Even when I'm not.

The Big C Church is full of beautiful, broken people. I love us.

Drink water.

Stress less.

Be intentional.

Close the garage door. 
(We recently went to Florida to come home to find the garage door open and the 
door to the house unlocked. For 8 days.)

God takes care of the stupid people. 
(See above.)

My treasure is not in my garage.

Encourage a mom.

Eat less.

Move more.

Summer's coming!

Busy does not equal important.

This world is not my home.

God is for me.

People need prayers, not happy thoughts.

Praying is doing something.

Results don't come for free.

I am just what my girls need.

Leave space in the calendar for Holy Spirit moments.

Finish your taxes.

Write Delsi.

What do you need to remember today?


  1. haha "hangry." love it.

    Also "Busy does not equal important." Such an important message for this world.

    1. Thanks, Jenna! I appreciate you reading!

  2. thoroughly enjoyed reading your "to remember" list! especially "busy does not equal important."

    i agree, totally! but that's what we mean when we say i'm busy sometimes... we're too important to bother with whatever it is... whatever it was.

    1. Oooh, you are so right! I wasn't even thinking of it that way! I was thinking more like "just because you are running yourself ragged, doesn't mean you are doing important things"....but you are spot on!!
      We do what we want to do, don't we??

  3. this is great!!! love this and that God takes care of stupid people!!

    1. Thank you, Sister. And, we are the proof!

  4. LOVE!!!I am living proof God takes care of dummies!! "Hangry"!!! Needs to be in the dictionary. So sad I missed you!! and I never mailed my handwriiten letter :( I.Stink. but I do Love you!!!

  5. Do you not have ONE noisy neighbor who would have closed the garage door? Oh my. That would have NEVER happened in my old neighborhood. They knew what lights I left on and when and when we were too lazy to recycle. Glad you vacay'ed....glad you're home safe. Glad you're bad to FMF...good post.
