Five Minute Friday

A weekly challenge by Lisa-Jo Baker. We all write about 1 word for five minutes.

Today's word is:  STAY


A Papa's hand.  A boy's sweet smile.
Looking into the eyes that he finds hope comfort, delight, and most importantly love.

The whisper of wisdom of a Grandfather's love.

"Stay young."

Stay young, my son.  Keep looking for frogs in the lake up north. 

Stay innocent, my son.  Keep believing in magic and dreams. 

Stay sweet, my son.  When you asked me today, "Has anyone told you that you are beautiful today?  You are," I knew once again that you took after your Papa. 

My Daddy who told me I was beautiful just as my Heavenly Father tells me in His love for me.

What a beautiful story. This makes me think of my own grandfather who was such a storyteller and person of great faith. Love how generations can speak life into future generations.

Hello, stopping in from FMF. I love the simplicity of this, and yet, the truth. I may be having an emotional morning or something, however, it totally choked me up a little as I sit watching my now 11 year old son who's playing video games, and remember in my mind when he was only 3 running and holding onto the hand of my grandfather. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece.
