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 “touch.” We would love to have you join us.
Her precious body curled up on mine. My hand runs across her fur. So soft. Her tongue licks my hand. Her head butts up again me…telling me to pet her or play with her. My sweet precious kitty Luna….balm to my soul.
His little hand in mine. His voice yelling my name, “Tara, look, look, I found more eggs.” His joy infectious.
She bolts down the aisle to get to me. She has to tell me the latest news in her world. Sometimes she has to tap my leg to get my attention.
Their hands work the soil. They plant seeds with the tractor. They harvest the field later on. Right now, it’s hard to do anything; touch any of the land. It’s so sloppy and muddy; 117 inches of snow on the farm this winter. It makes calving and planting more complicated.
A hot beverage touches my lips. The tea soothes my soul as it trickles down my throat.
Touch is all around us. Touch reminds us of the gifts we’ve been given…to use our hands, our feet, our eyes, our ears, etc. I love the ways touch find their way into my everyday.
