It’s time for the FMF weekly writing prompt blog link-up. Writers across the world get together, set a timer for 5 minutes and write to the prompt.
This week’s writing prompt from Kate is : PROMISE
A promise is a contract. I typically uphold promises with other people better than I do with myself. I need to exercise a bit more grace with myself I think.
Promises can be large or small.
I promise myself that I will not get defensive when someone hurts my feelings. Then I do it anyway. I need to forgive.
There is promise I see in my students. Such great potential!
Marriage is a promise of being there, of loving me when I am unlovable, of staying when it gets hard. It is the promise to take care of my needs and I will take care of yours.
Friendship is a promise too. I suppose all relationships are.
I have a promise to my children to teach them, and love them so they become members of society that have purpose and emit love and light.
I have promised myself I will write 31 stories this month as part of the storyaday.org challenge. So far, so good. It is day 17 and I am cruising along.
