Five Minute Friday - CRAVE

It has been a few weeks since I shared a post, linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday group of bloggers!

But, here I am!!  Be sure to check here for more information about participating in Five Minute Friday.

This week's word is:  Crave

Cravings?  Sure, I have had cravings!  Lately, I am craving the holiday shakes:  Mint Chocolate Chip; Peppermint; and even Eggnog!

So far, I haven't acted on those cravings; I am still waiting for the right time to enjoy one though.

But, I crave another even more important thing...

I crave hugs!  I love giving hugs to people I church, family gatherings, other social and crafty gatherings; that's my sign of love and affection for my family and friends.

And, when I give those hugs, I also receive a hug in return!

Life can get so busy that the things we love get lost in the busy-ness!  Especially during the holidays, when people seem to be in need of the closeness from others.


This is my way of sending a hug to my family and friends when connecting via Facebook.  Those "double arms" are expressing my need to hug...

My craving has been satisfied!  But, I'll never stop craving the hugs!

And, if nothing else, I'll just hug and cuddle with the cat!

So, I think my time is up!

Catch me again next week for Five Minute Friday!


  1. Barbara, this is great! I haven't gotten around to writing a post with that prompt yet. So glad you are writing again! Blessings to you!

    1. Thank you, Gayl! Life has been super busy; not sure how that happens, but I guess it IS the holidays?! And, I've been crafting a home!

      Appreciate your reading and commenting; I'll be getting some reading done today! Look forward to seeing your post.

  2. Such a fun post. You and I share a lot of the same things this time of the year. Peppermint is my fave. I also love to give hugs. I'm in the 5 spot this week.

    1. Yes, Tara! Peppermint!! I LOVE those big round peppermints that melt in your mouth!! I was late getting mine written, but did want to do so as I lay in bed the other night "writing" my post but didn't get up to do so...

      Always enjoy our chats; but not the "reason"!! Appreciate your reading and commenting.

  3. Girl, you warm my heart. Thank you for the hug. I so needed it!

    1. Thank you, Barbie...glad I could "warm your heart" with thoughts of MILK SHAKES!!! And, hugs are ALWAYS good!

      Appreciate your reading and commenting!

  4. Now hugs are something wonderful to crave. They are finding that hugs prolong our life and add years to our days. They certainly make our days more fun!

  5. Wouldn't the world truly be a better place if people just traded their craving to be "right" with a craving to reach out and hug those around them? Speaking for myself too, of course, as I still sometimes crave the need to be right or heard. Thanks for the great reminder.
