Five Minute Friday: Again

January 25, 2013 at 10:04 am Leave a comment

It’s the flash-mob of writing, folks, and I’m in it once again! Five minutes, no edits (and then go link up to Lisa-Jo over at the Gypsy Mama).

The word? Again.————-

It can be such a grace word, a word of second chances: again. Play the song again; that was wonderful. Or, let’s move past this and be friends again. You’re reading the same book again…and over, and over.

It can signal worth: something is worthy of being done, said, read, seen – a second time, because the first just wasn’t enough.

Or it’s a word of growth: You choose to trust again. To love again. To get back on the figurative (or literal) horse, again.

And even in the negative, when you have to do that work assignment again because you – or someone else – didn’t get it right the first time, or you’re tired of the long walk to lunch that is part of your daily routine, or whatever it is – there is still grace to be found in getting that second chance, in accepting the small things done over and over and over.

It’s a life-filled word: grace, patience, learning, joy. My little sister cries, “Again!” after we’ve played some fun game that she loves. I ask my ballroom coach to demonstrate that step again, because I haven’t gotten it yet. I curl up in my chair – like I have every day for the past weeks – to do thesis research, again.

So much to be learned in two short syllables!
