If you don’t know the low down, Thursday night is the night for FMF party where we gather and catch up on life and wait for our gracious host Kate to give us the word prompt for the week. Tonight we talked about all things Gilmore Girls. We lived vicariously through our friends who are together at the Festival of Faith and Writers. I seriously gush over these people and this community at every chance I get. I am so blessed by each of them and cannot wait until we meet in real life. Love you peeps!!
I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “easy.”
Learning how to ride a bike isn’t the easiest thing in the world, is it? Most kids have to ride around with training wheels on their bikes. They ride around until they have balance and the tires are no longer on the ground. That is a sure sign that they are probably ready to ride their bike. But that doesn’t mean there won’t still be skinned knees and elbows.
For me, learning to ride a bike was fairly easy. My parents surprised me with my first bike for my 5th Birthday. I had many friends over for my party. I had to solve the scavenger hunt clues until it led me to my new bike. I was so excited!!! My friends had me sit on the bike. They held on and pushed me while I pedaled. After awhile, my friends let go of my bike and I was still peddling. I was riding my bike by myself.
Riding my bike came easy for me, but for others, it maybe doesn’t come as easily. For some writing might come easy. For others, singing might come easy. Life is like that isn’t it? Life isn’t always easy. Life is full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows and so much more. We grieve. We cry. We struggle. I truly believe that life isn’t suppose to be easy. In fact, I came across this quote and it is so full of truth: “Nothing worth having comes easy!” Amen!
