This week’s (April 13 2016) Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction challenge is hosted by fellow Rough Writer Lisa Reiter at Sharing the Story. Lisa’s prompt, in 99 words (no more, no less) was to write about offering to help someone. I find that for the most part, kindness begets gratitude, a letter tells a story, and here is mine.
Unannounced, in the midst of total chaos and disarray, you burst into my home like a breath of fresh air. You brought your sunny smile, lots of bubbling energy – and a car load of sturdy boxes and wrapping paper! I can’t tell you what that meant to me. I was so distraught I was not going to get everything packed for the movers. You made it happen and for that, I am forever grateful.
There are daisies blooming in my new garden. They remind me of you – always laughing. Wish you were here.
