[5-minute-friday: good-bye]

[5-minute-friday: good-bye]

We set a timer, throw caution to the winds and try to remember what it was like to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat on the prompt- no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back to Lisa-Jo’s (aka Gypsy Mama) blog and invite others to join in.
3. Meet & encourage someone who linked up before you.

Today’s prompt is something that I really dislike. Good-byes.


I said that I really dislike good-byes. Make that I hate them.

This year will bring a share of good-byes that will be tough. Friends of many years leaving Ukraine and while I know that technically they are going to be around, it’s still hard to get used to the fact that they are not 30 minutes away.

The only thing that gives hope and doesn’t allow to get completely depressed is that I know that one day we’ll all meet. One day when good-byes will not be necessary. One day when we’ll laugh and dance and sing all together.

Glorious day.

Until then, good byes are a part of our lives – even if they are more like “See you later.”


Your turn.

  • That is so true, goodbyes can be very hard, but they are the reality of life. May you enjoy seeing one another when you can and give thanks for those moments that will become so special!

    • Enjoying while and when we can – that’s the thing we all should remember to do. 

      Thanks for coming by, Jacque! 🙂

  • “One day when good-byes will not be necessary.”   AMEN!!!!

    I was a military wife for 23 years. That meant a lot of good-bye’s to my family. My daddy and I would always say “see you later.” No good-bye’s. So when he went to walk the streets of gold with Jesus last October I had to say “see you later.” Precious! Thankful I stopped by today.


    • I cannot imagine what it would be like to move all the time – I lived in this apartment all my life (mom moved out, however)… 

      Wonderful that with God we have the ability to say “see you later” to those who leave this life.

    see you later sounds so much more kind than goodbye!
