The nice folks at StudioPlus 30, inspired by the new season, gave FALLING as one of the writing prompts for this week.  Meanwhile, Trifecta has BLIND as the  word prompt this week.  The combination of the two prompts inspired me to write something that has not Autumn-y at all.   If you are inspired toContinue reading “FALLING”


“Rose for you, Mommy.” Edith’s dismay at another wasted tissue turned to smile when she saw Margarette’s rolled up paper. Inside, “I love you” was scrawled by six year old hands. _____________________ This post is a response to Trifecta’s weekend challenge : “You already know where we’re going with this.  We want you to giveContinue reading “A LITTLE GIRL’S LOVE”
