Five minute Friday: In real life...

Today I am linking up to The Gypsy Mama. Every Friday she posts a prompt and for five minutes (only five minutes) she writes. Once the five minutes are up no editing or changes can be made. I decided to link up and write my own five minute piece.

This week's prompt is: In real life...

In real life two friends sit face to face.
One cups her hands around hot coffee,
The other around ice-tea.
They’ve been friends since they were tiny.
There is an undeniable history between them.
Somehow no matter how much time elapses between get-togethers and chats they still connect when they come together again.
The conversation isn’t too awkward when they re-meet, there is laughter to be found, and there are encouraging words to be mutually spoken.
This is real life.
This is my real life.
To share words with friends face to face.
To smell the drink in their hands, see the muscles move on their face, and hear the sound waves straight from their mouth to my own ears.
Real life is breathing in, taking in, hearing, smelling, seeing, and being.
It’s being.
Friendship in real life- that is what I felt last night.


P.S. In real life I also have the most amazing sister in the whole world. She is lovely and I cherish our friendship so very much! I just wanted to brag on her a bit tonight.


  1. I love the tangibility of it! I so appreciate those real life friends that you can feel and breath.

  2. Friends truly are a gift of God and what makes our life....real. So thankful you have been blessed with a treasure you call "Friend".
