5 Minutes Friday ~ Afraid

Saturday, February 2, 2013
Back in December 2012, I was browsing around the internet looking for some inspirations, and I came across Lisa-Jo Baker's Blog. I didn't really find the inspirations I was searching, however, I found a great linky party she hosts every Friday.

The party is called 5 Minutes Friday.

Here's all about it;

Friday, time to crack open the chocolate ice cream and unscripted version of beautiful you!
Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s finger paint with words.
Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not. Here’s how to play along:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minute artist who linked up before you {and if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to say howdy}
It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:

This Friday {Feb 01, 2013} Prompt is AFRAID.


Afraid is a word that I can really relate at the moment.
Ever since we arrived in Indonesia, our plans fell through.

We didn't live in Bali.
We couldn't start our own business.
Our kids can't go to school yet.

Deep down in my heart, I regret the decision to go back to Indonesia.
We're in the deepest hole....our family has ever experienced.

I'm so thankful for my parents who took us in.
But how long we should stay with them.
We're trying to get back on our feet.
It's hard. It's risky.

I lost hope, but at the same time I have to be strong for my husband and my kids.
My biggest worry is my children.
I'm afraid of their well-beings at this moment.

I'm afraid of not knowing what the future will hold for us.


Well...that's it.
I hope I can make it on time next Friday :D.
Have a great weekend everyone,


  1. Hang in there! Have hope, have faith!

  2. So sorry that things have not gone according to plan, actually much worse. I'm so glad you found this wonderful gathering place each week. We travel the world through our screens and find that we are not as alone as we think we are.

    I pray that over this next week you find peace and encouragement and direction. I hope that I can find you again here next week. Blessings!!

  3. I am sorry to hear you're facing your giants right now, but trust that God has a hope and a future for you. praying for you sweet mama.

  4. I am so so sorry to hear that it has been rough my friend but I am sure that everything will work out just as Good has planned for you and your family.

  5. I love you and miss you so much, please give me a call if you need someone to talk to.


Thank you for leaving me your craftilicious comments.
