It’s that time again! Time to gather around the table and share some juicy tidbits of fiction with the folks of Friday Fictioneers, hosted by the lovely and talented Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. You can find other small tales of wonder, and danger at: rochellewisoff.com. Come on out and join us! This week’s photo is loaned to us by : Rochelle herself.
‘Oh, Papaw, look…” Little Rose pointed to the steel lines in the street. “They’re still there, just like you said.”
Papaw looked at the old steel trolley lines embedded in the asphalt, his eyes misting. His mind taking him back a half a century to a day he would never forget. He sniffled and squeezed Rose’s hand. “It’s so we never forget, my little Rose… so we never forget.’ His voice choked on the last word.
‘When you forget, Papaw, I will remember for you.’ Rose smiled up at him.
Author’s Note: Remember to treasure everyday that you have… it could be your last. Or, in the case of my Mominlaw, it could be the last that you can remember. She’s been diagnosed with Senile Dementia a few years ago, and it’s been getting much worse. Prayers that when they come down this Friday that they even know who we are. Last Christmas, they didn’t.
It’s been hectic these last couple of months. In November, I did Nano, stopped counting at 65K. Set aside writing to return to my Blackwork SAL (sew-a-long), and managed (no idea how?) to accomplish 28 weeks of sewing in a mere three weeks, finishing it on Christmas Day! YEAH!
My dear Hubby has been declared blind… and believe it or not, that’s a good thing. Now, he’s getting some help with special equipment to enable him to work much easier… at least as far as reading the fine print on things. We still have a couple of evals to go through to qualify for a white cane, and/or a balance cane. He’s received his “reader” from the library for the blind and we are awaiting the first audio books to arrive. He chose his first book: “The Brave New World” by Aldus Huxley. This should be interesting to watch his reaction. hehe. No hospitals in recent weeks which has been a godsend and answer to soooo many prayers.
Happy New Year to EVERYONE! Hope is filled with more blessings than you can count in your lifetime!
