Do you have a COMMUNITY?

It’s Five-Minute Friday again!  This is the day a bunch of us get together and write without stopping for a full five minutes on an assigned topic.  The prompt is assigned by Lisa-Jo at  It’s really fun to see what everyone comes up with.  Take a few minutes an check it out.  You just might decide to join in!

This has taken me a long time today to get focused on so I’m just going to write and let things happen as they may.


I have been thinking about communities all morning and have finally given up.  I can’t think of anything to say about them except that we all need them.

Your community is your support system.  For some of us they are those people that you can call at any hour day or night and cry and they will listen to you.  They are those people that will tell you the truth in love and you will love them even more for doing it.

For some people, community is the place you live.  What surrounds you.  For me they are one and the same.  What you surround yourself with is what makes you who you are.

For some people, your community is your neighborhood.  The people that live in those houses nearest you.  The people your kids go to school with.  For some people, that’s as far as they get.  They don’t become their community, they live on the outside of it.

I think more and more off us are doing that these days.  We seldom meet our neighbors anymore or chat on the porch as they walk their dog past.

If that’s you, slow down.  Reach out.  Become a part of your communty.

Sorry.  Times up!  And I just started to get into it.

  1. You were the person next to me on the 5-minute Friday link up, so I hopped on over. Glad I did! For someone who had nothing to write, I thought it was really good!!!! “Those who tell you the truth in love and you love them even more for doing it.” I loved that! It’s amazing how the heart knows how to separate critical attitudes from those who are telling you something that will help you grow deeper and live a richer life. These kinds of friends are few and far between and the ones you want to hold on to for dear life! Thanks for such a good post today. I’m so glad I was here!

    • Thank you! I’m really glad you stopped by too. It really helps when people stop in and share their thoughts on what I write.
