Five Minute Friday ~ In Between

In Between

I couldn't believe the prompt for this week... I am SO IN BETWEEN!
In between JOBS.
In between $$ obligations.
In between a healthy husband and the man who came through back surgery, yesterday.
In between being mom to a SENIOR in high school and the little boy who loved to be at home.

I don't like being here.  It pinches, and stifles, and makes me cry in the drive-thru at McDonald's.
It makes me miss my kindergarten students and their beautiful parents who continue to send wishes of well-being and encouragement.

But.  I am going to stand in the middle of this place, this in between, and look up...look around
...look inside.
You know, the stuff in the middle of the Oreo cookie is what most of us choose first.

The space may grow on me.
Without a doubt, it's going to change me.
Join up HERE!


  1. That's beautiful Chrissy :)
    That declaration to stand in this place and to face change x

  2. Beautiful indeed. (I'm loving "My God My King" by All Sons and Daughters. I will sing, sing, sing...)

    Forever in First

  3. I think it's a great way to look at it. I'm sure you will end up where you are meant to be! :) Hope your husband is recovering well-that is definitely no fun but I'm sure you're taking good care of him.


  4. I love this post. I can totally relate to one who goes after the center of the Oreo first. Oh if we would just do that in life, go after the in between!


Thanks for being part of my story!
