Five Minute Friday: Wonder

It's been a while since I just sat down and wrote a note without planning it out, thinking it through, feverishly editing and re-editing.  I love the Five Minute Friday link-up at Lisa-Jo's blog.  It's free'ing to just write about something, anything and then look back and see what you've came up with.  You should try it sometime.

Today's topic is wonder.  Check out my five minutes below and then take the opportunity to check out some of the other bloggers/writers at

Five Minutes to Wonder

I wonder some days what my future will be like.  I wonder whether I will  be able to keep my goslings happy and safe, whether Daddy Goose and I will be able to do all of the things we want to do in life, how long we will have my parents and in-laws around to enjoy, whether we are on the path that God has set for us or whether we have strayed with our own agendas.

Wondering can sometimes gets your mind in trouble.  You begin to think about the what ifs, the should haves or could haves or how much differently your life would be.  It makes it hard to remember that your life is how you make it, not how you wonder it.

I like to think that I live for the now.  The today.  The present.  Keeping my goslings and Daddy Goose happy TODAY, not wondering whether they will get asked to their first school dance (thank you Parenthood for the "wonder") or get a great job after college.  Or whether Daddy Goose and I will be able to travel the world after he retires. (which, by the way, is only 13 years away!)

This rainy, cold, "wonder"ful, fall day is whats most important...AND how good my spaghetti dinner will be tonight!

What are you wondering about today?

  1. This is such a warm-hearted read. Oh, how we can battle to stay in the present, just that moment-to-moment present. If we think of it, our Heavenly Father created time and He is not bound by time as we know it and we can surely leave the times of our lives in His hand. But our feeble hearts, for some reason, find that difficult to do!!! This was a charming read. Thank you.
    Much love to the Family Goose

  2. Thanks for reminding us that it is important to step back and be content in the now instead of wondering about the past or future. Merry Christmas! Found you through Bloggy Moms.
