Five Minute Friday: Join

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here 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. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:::

I set the timer... Go!

I am so glad to have had the privilege to join many clubs, ladies groups and internet groups over the years. They have provided me many friends.When I join a group I feel like I belong. I am a people person.

In High School I was part of a group that studied geology together and helped with younger grades' classes and fields trips. I was close to the guys in that group (I was the only girl) and they treated me like a sister. I needed that as my dad died when I was in 9th grade, the teacher was also like a dad to me.

I have been part of many ladies Bible studies over the years.

I have been part of a homeschool support group for 20 years.

A few years ago I was part of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I am still online friends with a lot of those ladies and one gent, and some are close online friends who I know care for and pray for me.

I am especially glad for a new groups of ladies who have all been or are still the spouse of an unemployed husband. We have become fast friends and I can tell them anything, especially how I am feeling and dealing with things emotionally and spiritually. I know they are there for me and the group is private so I can be open, real, and honest. It is wonderful. I thank God for bringing them into my life.

It is never enough time, but I have to stop because those are the rules.

So you're a veteran! I'd love to hear a few war stories. =) I'm just starting out on the whole homeschool venture... 5 kids 7 and under right now!
