Five Minute Friday is something that I have wanted to do for a while. I’ve been reading them for a couple of weeks and this is the first time I have found the courage to do it . . . why do we limit ourselves?
Linking with Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday with the one word prompt: Dance.
The first vision in my mind was of a couple dancing–that seems quite ridiculous because my husband and I never dance in the traditional way of being at a party dancing the night away.
Our dance takes place in the kitchen after dinner–the kids scramble to do their after dinner chores and I put any leftovers away and my husband takes care of the dishes that have accumulated since lunch, making dinner and dinner dishes. We flow through the kitchen knowing each others step–usually–every once in a while I move to the fridge and he moves to the garbage and we crash–not a graceful dance at that moment.
Our dance takes place as we fold the mountain of laundry that piles up–we talk and we listen to each other, laugh and throw socks into the pile–that neither of us wants to deal with.
Our dance is daily and I’ve grown to like it this way. I always thought I was missing out on something–but I’m not.
