Nice To Be Thankful


1.   I am thankful for the new man in my life who has shown me love, made me feel appreciated, and given me hope for a brighter tomorrow.

2.   I am most definitely thankful that the weather has gotten up into the high 70’s and according to the weather report, this week is only going to get better.

3.   I am thankful that my two gorgeous daughters will be with me on Mother’s Day.

4.   This may sound simple but I am so thankful I was approved for insurance.  I have been without it since January 31st and since I’m on 5 different medications that I need, buying them out has proven to be a challenge.

5.   This applies to number 2.  I believe, but I am thankful for all the gorgeous plants and flowers that my boyfriend has bought for his flower garden and for his mother’s.  They are gorgeous, bright bulbs of happiness.

6.   I am thankful I lost 12 lbs.  Still not where I want to be exactly.  I didn’t do it on purpose or the healthy way. More like stress caused it.  It’s left me in a weird size of clothes too.  But at least it’s 12 lbs lost and not gained.

7.    I am thankful for the few people in my life that I can go to at any time, and they are glad to see me.

8.   I am pre-thankful that my job search has turned over some new leaves, and hopefully I will be working soon.

9.   I am thankful I got to spend time with my girls’ aunt, their father’s sister.  Her and I have always been close.  So, it was good to see her.

10.   I am thankful for the promise ring my man bought me.  {This should go under number 1.}

In reference to number 5, I will share pictures soon of the flower gardens and of my Wandering Jew Plant. 

This was my flower bed in 2000.  Hoping to make it better this year.

Sign From The Gods

Six Sentence Stories/



What had started out as a few flurries when Judy pulled out of her driveway, was now huge, sticky flakes of snow, blinding her as she made her way from North Carolina to her parent’s home in Virginia.    All her friends and family couldn’t understand why she’d taken a job five hours away from home, and her pride wouldn’t tell them it was to get away from Paul, her ex-fiance she caught cheating on her with his new secretary.   He had agreed to let her go, move on with her life, and keep the scandal from everyone.    Now she dreaded going to the Christmas party that she had attended every year since she could remember, dreaded seeing him, hated she still felt for him, and was half tempted to use the snow as an excuse to miss the party.   As if the gods had sent her a sign, she could make out through the whitened windshield a vacant sign blinking on her side of the road.  Her car was the only one in the parking lot of a small, homey looking Inn, but she ignored her instinct, stepping inside to book a room for the night, and was pleased to see a nice built, handsome man behind the check-in desk.

Written for:  Two Shoes in Texas writing prompt Six Sentence Story.   I find myself enjoying writing these flash fiction pieces. It’s different from writing poetry and though I haven’t had much practice with anything other than poetry, I feel like I’m making good progress as far as writing 5 or 6 sentence fiction.
