Risk and Reward

I’m joining the fun over at LisaJo Baker’s place today with another wild and crazy Five Minute Friday post! The idea is to write for 5 minutes flat, no editing. Just writing from the heart. Today’s prompt: Risk Start For so long the risk seemed to outweigh the reward. So, I kept it to myself. Played it close to the vest.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the middle of summer finds my mommy tank running a little low. It does the whole family a world of good for me to find ways to refill that tank. That old adage, If Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy? Yeah, that’s super true in our house.
