Five Minute Friday: Write
I guess I really have been a writer for most of my life although I never thought of myself as such. I do remember not having much trouble writing essay answers to tests. Those were my favorite type of questions because I could think of plenty to say. Maybe it's because I enjoy talking. When I was a child most of the adults in my life told me I talked too much and asked too many questions, but my parents were always ready to listen and answer.
When I was 10 years old I even wrote a little song about loving Jesus. I even put the notes on some music paper so I could play it on the piano. Here is how it went if I can remember correctly :
" Oh, we should love Jesus, We should love Jesus! Why? Because He first loved us."
Then at age 11 my friend and I started writing a story together about some kid going into space or something like that. We had a spiral bound notebook and would take turns taking it home and adding more to the story. It was great fun! I don't even remember my friend's name or whatever happened to the story.
And ever since we started homeschooling over 20 years ago I have kept journals, not always faithfully every day, sometimes months would go by but I still keep at it and much as I can. Now, because of my daughter encouraging me I have actually written a guest post for her blog which will be published next week, started a blog of my own JUST TODAY! And now I'm participating in Five Minute Friday for the first time! It's great!
