Linking up today with Five Minute Friday where you write for 5 minutes about the word for today and then publish without editing or perfecting.
Wind blowing through the trees. Leaves are swaying to and fro. A bird's nest on the windowsill. And every so often, a bird dances on the sill. A glimpse of sunlight streams in the window. That's my perspective of the outside world.
Pager chirping. Code Blue. Code Red. Doctors and nurses scramble to help the patient. So many people standing around the bed that I cannot even see the patient. The family arrives. I pray. I listen. I hold hands. I comfort. That's my former perspective, a day and night in my life.
But no longer.
I miss it.
So busy, so emotional, so needed.
Am I still?
No, I'm not busy.
I sit, I rest, I read, I knit, I watch tv and movies.
I'm emotional - pain, longing, forgotten, distraught, wanting.
Am I needed? I want to be. But most of the time, I'm the one needing, not the one needed.
What about you? What do you have to say about perspective in 5 minutes? If you link up, let me know. I'd love to read your post.
