Trust. Such a precious gift we can give to others.  And yet so fragile. Like a delicate glass vase.  Once cracked the scar always remains.  Once shattered the time to rebuild is long and tedious.

How do you value people?  When they trust you, do you toss it around like a hot potato hoping it won’t come crashing to the floor?  Or do you protect it?  Treasure it for its great worth?

Note: I find I can’t write anything without making corrections as I go.  I’m constantly editing as I type.  I reword things, move sentences around and rephrase.  Its no wonder my post about the topic is so short.  Maybe one of these days I will be able to just let my thoughts flow without interjecting.

5 Minute Friday is hosted by The Gypsy Mama.  She gives you a topic or word and you set your timer to write for 5 minutes. If you’d like to learn more about it or read more posts, make sure to click the image.


  1. It may be short, but these are very wise words! :-) You asked some great questions to think about, too. Nice to "meet" you!


  2. Such a good point - trust really is a gift of great worth.
