Joy Complete in a Visit

To participate in Five Minute Friday, all you have to do is write for five minutes on the word of the week, post your words on your own blog, and link up the post here.  This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write.

Today's prompt:  VISIT


I love to visit. It's kind of an old-fashioned pastime these days. My world seems caught up in texts and tweets...short bursts of computerized conversations; so I love when I can slow down and take a moment to actually converse eyeball-to-eyeball with someone. 

I've learned so much about people, just by stopping to visit. 

The world doesn't really need to rush from activity to activity. 

We all need to slow down, make contact with strangers, who might need a friendly smile and two minutes of conversation. 

Today, I encourage us all to take time to tangibly connect with our words. Reach out to our loved ones, let them know we are thinking about them, praying for them, missing them. 

I imagine a visit will lift our spirits as much, if not more, than it does for the ones with whom we are visiting. 

...TIME'S UP! 

Who comes to mind you can visit today?

I have much more to say to you,
but I don't want to do it with paper and ink.
For I hope to visit you soon and talk with you face to face.
