Five Minute Friday: After

I recently read about Five Minute Friday and thought it may be fun to take part. Though it is already Saturday, here is my first Five Minute Friday post. Each Friday a new topic is given and one simply writes for five minutes without worrying if it is perfect or profound. The only rule is to visit the person who linked up before you, and encourage them. 

After my sister has visited, I have wonderful moments to cherish. I love having snippets of time with her and love seeing our beautiful children enjoy time together. The boys, growing taller and being loud as boys will. The girls , though big now too, enjoying giggles and a sort of sisterhood.
After she has gone I always pray for a safe journey home for them, as the drive is long. I am always relieved to know they are home safely on the far away farm.
After she has gone I cry, I miss her and wonder when I will see her again. I wonder when I might visit the farm again. After her visits I savour the gifts she always brings from the farm. It's like having a little bit of her still here. After she is gone I look forward to reading her blogs about her far away farm life.

Five Minute Friday


  1. Hi Wendy. I loved reading your blog today about all that comes with the AFTER of your sister's visit. I live a complicated life away from everyone and so understand how one continues to enjoy the gifts and the memories long after enjoying the physical presence of those we love. Great to read some of your other posts too...

    1. Hi Heather, thanks for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed my posts. I can't seem to get onto your blog, perhaps you can leave me a link, would love to pop over :)

  2. Beautiful, brought a lump to my throat. Love you.
