Today's Prompt is On Distance
I could take this the route of the distance between my husband and I right now... He is in Florida for a work conference and my kids and I miss him very much... hurry home!!
But instead, I am going with my current living situation... which I wouldn't change for the world right now. We used to live in a 2 bedroom trailer, which wasn't a problem when it was just my and my hubby... then we had our son... and then a daughter, and then another daughter, and then another daughter!!! and suddenly it got crowded! The nice place about our trailer was that we were seriously 5 -8 minutes from ANYTHING!!! Church, work, school, Target, Aldi, Wegmans, friend's houses, EVERYTHING!
Then God provided us a home... 3 bedrooms, finished basement, 2 car garage and ACRES of land to run and play on... it's in the country! :) It takes me AT LEAST 15 minutes to get anywhere... 20 minutes for some things! and we drive our kids to school and one is 1/2 day kindergarten... so that makes for a lot of trips into town. Add in AWANA Wednesday nights, and Karate Thursday nights and I have been doing a lot of travel the past 2 days (normally, my husband handles some of those trips... I can't wait till he gets home... and the distance between us is inches (or less).
However, I am learning to love the distance... the scenery on our many car rides is gorgeous... country living! And I love it (except when I am running late)
Five minutes is not very long at all ... sorry for the ALL CAPS and exclamation points. does that mean I am passionate? also... how far do you live from your "hub"??
Go, read some more 5 minute posts "On Distance" and then go write one of your own... it only takes 5 minutes! :)
