Trying something new today and participating in 5 minute Friday. The prompt word is “willing.” The idea is to set a timer and simply write for 5 minutes without worrying about perfection. Just write the words without worry about grammar,font, or punctuation.
I’m willing to do anything for my family.
I’m willing to help cook for them and clean for them. I’m willing to help with homework that I seldom understand. Um, I didn’t understand geometry on the first try. That knowledge doesn’t magically appear during the course of 10 (okay, 20…or more) years.
I’m willing to be the “bad guy” that says turn off the screens, eat dinner NOW, go to bed NOW, I’m sorry you have choice in this matter. I am willing to be the parent.
I’m not as willing to be the friend. My kids have plenty of friends.
They need me to be willing to be brave enough to not care if they like me or not because I love them.
