Five Minute Friday: Roots

I wasn't planning on writing anything today but I saw the prompt and I had too. Maybe you have to write as well or read stories of others, it's all at the gypsy mama's site.


4 provinces. 4 years. 2 little girls. 1 dream. 1 journey. 

I cried a little when I saw this week's prompt: Roots. Cried because that word resonates deep within me right now. 

We're doing something hard, something a little crazy but something that makes us so happy and so fulfilled. Something that we've been talking about since before we said our vows. A pursuit of a dream and a lifestyle that when we're old and gray and rocking away, we'll be glad we took the jump. 

It means uprooting, it means moving across the country. Twice. 

It means tears. Lots of them sometimes. It means deep happiness and the knowledge that we are more together then ever before. 

It means that our roots don't go down in just one town, in just one province, in just one country. It means that our roots are each other, that home is where ever we are. Together. The four of us. 

It means that our story is being written and these are the first few chapters. The hard bits. But the roots are going down.




linking up with Five Minute Friday, five minutes to just write.

  1. My heart is with you as I face a season of life where my roots are being yanked at and will be transplanted so to speak. The tears are bittersweet as I know in order to accomplish a dream some things must be left in previous chapters. Hard is an understatement.

    Prayers and love as your roots grow in their new surroundings

  3. I'm so glad you did write, Breanne. :) And oh, I relate so strongly to your post too! There is so much courage shining through your words -- I especially love the ring of that last line: "the roots are going down." Yes, they are, and how rich and wide they'll spread!

  4. Love these words of yours SO much: "It means that our roots don't go down in just one town, in just one province, in just one country. It means that our roots are each other, that home is where ever we are. Together." Robbie and I were just talking about that the other day. This GOOD thing we have done, this brave and adventurous choice we've made, it is so hard, so teary, such a struggle, but oh, such a GIFT and a TREASURE!! Our roots ARE each other, and we take them wherever we go: Europe, North America, Oz. We are home as long as we're together. :-) XOXO
