Five Minute Friday – Ordinary

I’ve watched from the side lines for long enough kinda stalking other people’s 5 minute Friday and always gone: “ I could NEVER do that”
Well today I did and it was super cool 🙂

I first saw it on Lisa Jo’s blog about a year ago and today saw it on a new blog I’ve started following: Student Mom and decided it was time.


The rules are simple:
1. Write for 5 minutes based on the topic/word – no editing, no over thinking (should be a challenge for me), no backtracking (equally as hard)
2. Link back here to your source and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. – which is NB because I for one that I haven’t done this ever because I think to myself why on earth would someone want to read my garbled mumbo jumbo!!

Ok so here goes:


Ordinary….my life is anything but and I like it that way

The drama queen of the family they call me…better than the black sheep I guess 🙂

It’s what keeps me alive having the excitement of life, anticipating the next twist in the road…..
When I go one day I hope no one will call me such, what a boring word!

I want to be remembered as
Fun to be around
A great mom who absolutely loved her Ginger
Who loved her husband fiercely and her family just as much
Someone who could sing and had the voice of an angel
But definitely not ordinary!

That being said its sometimes nice for a little mediocrity ….to just sometimes BE without pressures of being the one to hold it together. Striving to be more than ordinary can be tiring somewhat. But we can’t always be fabulous and sometimes it’s nice to be a little ordinary. How’s that for contradicting yourself in 5 minutes!!

  1. Perfect!! Contradictions prove you’re not ordinary.

    It’s those contradictions that prove the true meaning and shine the beauty of what others see as ordinary. The gift of the ability to be ordinary! So glad you joined in! Visiting from FMF
