5 minute friday ~ family loud

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

We finger paint with words. We try to remember what it was like to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

Where your words are welcome, just as they are!

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

Today’s word ~ LOUD

start ~

Most of the time there are 18 of us

~ 11 adults & 7 kids

There is laughter and games

Lots of food and fun

Silly singing and thankfuls

Kids playing in the other room

Adults talking of life and playing card games

There are birthdays and anniversaries

And sometimes “secret pals”

There maybe a bible story or scripture

but there’s always prayer and love

It is once a month – family night

It is LOUD!

stop ~

  1. look at that beautiful family!!! I have no doubt with that many souls in one family that you know a thing or two about loud… and I bet you know a thing or two more about love.,,

  2. I understand your joy completely, as my family numbers about 33 when we gather. We only tend to gather for holidays because of distance. How great you have a standing gathering every month. What a testimony to your children about the importance of family ties!
