One Letter at a time #reflection #shortstory

Each letter has something to say…

“Take one letter any one ”

“What if I take the wrong one?”

“You can’t they all have something to say”

With eyes closed a “T” appears

“That’s easy Thank You for Today”

a smile comes over the horizon in the shape of the sun

Mine is “H” Have a hopeful heart

Giggles rustle through the trees

“this is fun”

“Yes I thought you’d like it my child”

“C” pops up next

“Take Care and be Concerned for others”

“K” is mine she squeals”

“Kiss for mommy on the cheek”

“Hmm each of those are precious honey.”

“P” I take a thoughtful moment

“Pray honey, Praise your God never forget to say Please”

“I wont mommy” she says so grownup. “I wont forget”


Thank you God for being more than able to hold my concerns in your capable hands

I am hopeful for another day and for healing that you have promised from this cancer

May I in my own concerns never stop caring for the concerns of others

Feel me blow kisses to the wind for you and all who I love

Please give me a heart to praise you daily in song and in silence.

May my prayers be faithful for others; those many dear people who care for me and the lost.

~Love Me

  1. Moonie, I really enjoy, and re-learn from personal experiences of others–and my own–grin! Especially ‘first-person’ short stories of awareness in the style of Brian M.
    Blessings for you and that “little adult” in your life.


    1. You have started to add deital by using description and your punctuation is improving but there are still missing full stops sometimes. Well done for trying to use commas- you did well! Be careful to ensure your story doesn’t start to sound like a list of things which happened. You need to keep that story language, use of connectives and description all the way through.


  2. A very interesting journey… I enjoyed it. This reminds me of a beautiful quote my St. Francis de Sales …

    “Do not fear what may happen tomorrow. The same loving Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and everyday. Either he will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings.”

    1. One stormy night in an abnanoded old house an old man slowly opened the creaky door. He walked slowly through it. He held a candle and crept slowly through the hallway. His hat flew away and floated like a balloon. The old man reached down and picked it up and put it back on his head. Suddenly a spooky ghost appeared behind him. The man turned around but instantly the ghost put himself into the picture frame. The old man turned around again and started walking slowly. As he was walking the ghost was making funny faces whilst he was floating in the air. The old man looked very suspicious. He felt horrified and raced down the stairs. When he got downstairs he continued to walk slowly. He hesitatingly turned around until right in front of his eyes was the ghost! Unexpectedly the ghost blew the candle out. They stood face to face in the darkness
