Five Minute Friday: Jump

Jump...a word that conjures up mixed emotions
Jump...a word that can make me feel joy or fear
Jumping for joy....
when I see my kids excel,
 when I see my little nephew saying and doing cute new things,
 seeing family who visit from afar, 
surprises and good news or winning a prize...
joyful jumping!
Jump, fear...
my heart jumps or pounds inside my chest and speeds up when I hear sad or bad news,
 a loud strange noise in the middle of the night, 
when awaiting any kind of medical results, 
phones that ring late at night,
 spiders and geckos....
I would rather be jumping for joy!
