Five Minute Friday - Graceful
More like "grace-less".
Clutzy, always falling down (or up) the stairs, tripping over things that couldn't be seen by the naked eye, I somehow managed to make it through my growing up years with precious few black-eyes and only one broken bone.
But I wanted to be, with all my heart, like a ballerina, graceful, elegant, tall.
I ended up being a slightly chubby, 5'2" mama of five.
Tall? Only in my dreams.
Elegant? Hee, hee.
But full of grace? Maybe. I hope so.
Two daughters have inherited my "not-so-graceful-ness". Yup. We're short, fire-crackery kinds of gals.
We may be wee, but were fierce, let me tell ya.
So graceful, no. But full of grace, yes.
And definitely, always fun-sized.
Won't you come and join the party at The Gypsy Mama? You just write for five minutes, no editing or backtracking, just writing for the joy of it on the prompt she gives us, link up and then visit others who have linked up, too!
