I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “secret.” We would love to have you join us.
Two sisters playing in the backyard. The younger one leans in and tells a secret to her big sister. After the secret is told, silence, lips are sealed. We must not tell others what we just heard.
What was it? The name of a boy? Or another kind of secret? Whatever it is, it must not be told. It must stay locked deep in the depths of our hearts. To this day, I still hold the secrets. I will forever hold her dreams. I will keep my lips sealed and not share what she told me about her first love.
And there are secrets we tell each other now too. There is something holy in holding each other’s secrets in the palms of our hands. Secrets that carry our deepest dreams and desires. Secrets that are to be held by only those we know we can trust.
Do you want to know the secrets?
I’m not telling!
:)–Sisters are the best, aren’t they? And secret keepers have a special responsibility to share burdens with the teller as well as an opportunity to share.
Sisters are the best!
My secrets have secrets. Yes, I stole that line from Tony Stark in ‘The Avengers’, but it’s no less true.
Thanks for the smile, friend!
Beautiful post! And no, I don’t want to know your sister’s secrets, Ifeel great knowing that you can hold a secret.
These are the best kind of secrets and secret keepers. Sweet story, Tara. Thanks for sharing.
This made me smile as wide as humanly possible!!! <3<3<3
Well I am so glad!
As the oldest sister of three, this hit home in my heart! Sacred sister secrets bind us together whether young or like me, not so young! Thank you for sharing this sweet post, Cindy #fmf
You are so welcome. I am glad my words resonated with you.
Lovely post, Tara! Those relationships where we can share secrets and know that they are safe are special!
I would imagine this is essay is referring to your sister. My sister and I are co-conspirators and secret-keepers!!
This made me smile. In high school some girlfriends and I came up with code names for all the boys we had crushes on. What’s funny is that I can remember the code names but I’m not totally sure who they apply to. 🙂
I love that you came up with code names.
Oh, the memories! Me and my younger sisters sharing secrets. Where has the time gone? Fun post, Tara.
Yes indeed, where has the time gone??!!
Love!! I don’t have any sisters but I bet sister secrets are the best!
They truly are!
I believe holding one another’s secrets IS a holy thing. It’s a sacred trust, not to be taken lightly.
It truly is a holy thing.
Being the little sister of two older brothers, I wasn’t in on any of the secrets. Boo-hoo. Oh well. That’s what good girl friends are for, right?
