Five Minute Friday :: Together

I'm linking up again to Lisa-Jo Baker's blog where she hosts a Five Minute Friday Party where she invites other bloggers to write freely for five minutes.  This week, the prompt is together.


Together we go to the Fall Bash at school.  Costumes on, cash on hand for the PTO-provided dinner of hotdogs, drinks and juice.  It's not our usual Friday night dinner, but we were together, and that's what's important.

Together with other parents and kids, we got together in the gym and enjoyed each other.  A couple of pumpkin crafts later, some face painting, and dancing, we come home, together.  Exhausted.

Shabbat is about being together.  Sometimes, not always, but sometimes, it is good to do something different and say "yes" to an event on our special family night.  We did something different together tonight, and it was exactly what we needed.


I write slow today, so that was five minutes.  It is good to be together, and fun.  I love my family.

  1. Enjoyed reading your post! I can see that family is important to you! And, yes, you are right - sometimes we do need to do something different especially if it is done together. Shabbat Shalom!

  2. Thanks for reading! I think we often forget to enjoy each other in the midst of routine and rules. That's why sometimes breaking out is good!
