Five Minute Friday: She

Five Minute Friday

Come on, you can do it! You can write for five minutes, whatever is on your heart, and do it so fast that your inner critic doesn't even know what hit her. Give it a try. Write for five minutes whatever comes out, no editing. No fixing those spelling or grammar or punctuation errors that like to catch each of us.

This week's five minute journey is about: She


She was blue and she wasn't crying. This she was scared. They were over at the monitor with their backs to her, whispering, and alarms were going off. Something wasn't right.

They said that they'd lay the baby on her chest if everything was okay when she was born. But, she came out and they took off across the room with her, without a word, leaving her mama in freak mode wondering why her baby wasn't crying.

The APGAR was 0 and the cord had been wrapped around her little neck. She was a tiny little thing, just six pounds and fourteen ounces. So tiny compared to her older brother who was eight pounds and eight ounces when he muscled his way into this world.

She still wasn't crying, but her mama was.

She was born five days past her due date, but they said she was a preemie.

She's still a tiny little thing, maybe a hundred pounds soaking wet at twenty-two years of age. She made it.

So did I.



  1. What a Happy Ending to your Story. Mine is similair but a different outcome. Nevertheless it's a Happy One because God does all things well. This is the first time I have successfully posted on Five Minute Friday. I'm so glad I found this site. Very nice to meet you through your "She" story.

    1. Thank you. I am sorry that your experience had a different outcome. :( For the babies that we've lost, one thing that keeps me from going totally insane is knowing that they are in Heaven waiting for me, that nothing bad can ever happen to them because they are in His care.

      I am glad to have you here. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!
