Five Minute Friday: Bare

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

Five Minute Friday: Bare


i have never had truly bare cupboards.  empty shelves mocking me.  a fridge void of milk, cheese and other 'essentials'.  i have never known what it is like to have to skip a meal or worse not be able to feed my children.  i have never had to make the tough choice between eggs or milk with money only for one. 

i hardly ever remember that this is such a privilege.  i almost never think about the people who don't have these luxuries.  my world is so completely insulated sometimes that i forget about people who face these harsh realities of life.  it saddens me that i am so blind to these things sometimes.

i may not have all of my wants, but i certainly have every single one of my needs met and so much more.
