Middle is the word for Five Minute Friday this week. [bctt tweet=”It’s interesting how we talk about being in the middle of something. ” username=”GaylWright”]It could mean exactly in the center or just somewhere between the beginning and the end.
Lacey to the Rescue
“Grandma, what happened?”
“I tripped over the dishwasher and fell.”
“Are you okay?”
“I bit my lip, and I think it is bleeding.”
That’s what happened to me on Tuesday as my granddaughter, Lacey, and I were in the middle of preparing supper. Lacey finished up the meal and gave her brothers some food.
I spent the evening holding ice against my lip. It is surprising to me how quickly it is healing, for which I’m very thankful.
Two Grandchildren Come to Visit
Right now I’m in the middle of taking care of two other grandchildren who are staying with us for a few days. We’ve been having fun doing various things including reading and going outdoors.
One night they were having trouble going to sleep. Little Maggie said she missed her mommy. So I lay down in the bed with her. In a few minutes her brother, Liam, asked if I could come to his bed.
I ended up in the middle, because we had two single mattresses set up on the floor. Maggie was so excited and said, “Now we can both snuggle with you!” They went to sleep shortly after that. [bctt tweet=”Sometimes being in the middle is the best thing!” username=”GaylWright”]

I love the two different ways you compared being in the middle. One negative and one positive. 🙂 I’m glad you lip is healing. I hope you are completely healed soon.
Thank you, Amanda! My lip is much better, still a little sore, but almost back to normal.
