Five Minute Fridays is an online community of writers who take five minutes each week to write on a topic provided by our lovely hostess, Lisa-Jo Baker. It’s a place for creativity, reflection and inspiration fueled by the freedom to write whatever comes to mind with the encouragement of other FMF participants. Enjoy!
My favorite color… vibrant, bold, full of energy. Quite an odd choice for this shy introvert! It’s the color that always looks good on me, the color I love to use when I decorate (no room is complete without a touch of red!).
But it is more than a pretty color. Red represents family, heritage, memories of those who loved me. My dad also likes red – as much as an outdoorsy construction worker has color preferences. And his mom, my Grandma, loved red. It was her favorite color, and rarely do I wear red and not think of her. She was lovely and loving and I miss her terribly sometimes. She was a woman of faith who prayed diligently for her children and grandchildren. She would not let us walk in her house without giving her a “neck hug.”
Red is the color of love.
