Catch - You are it!

Gypsy mama says:

"On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.
We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just writewithout worrying if it’s just right or not.
Won’t you join us?"
    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. 2. Link back here and invite others to join in. 3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!
    Today's Prompt:  Catch


Life is like a game of Catch.   The ball is thrown your way you run as fast as you can to Catch that ball and breathless and pushing forward, overcoming the obstacles in your way it somehow lands in your hands. 

 You hold on for dear life ... "Please God let me just make it to the other side without dropping it along the way." You eventually arrive through tears, sheer determination, much prayer and finally some laughter .... thinking this was not so bad and breathe a sigh of relief as all those negative things are released and you hold onto the positives of that wonderful moment of achievement.

 But, Oh no ..... just as you think you are safe and have reached your goal, life sneaks up behind you, reaches out and once again says ...."You Are It!" ......... and so the game of CATCH goes on.


  1. The thing about those games of catch that life throws us, is that no matter if we drop the ball, or make it to the other side, there's always something to learn through the journey. :)

    Great post!
