Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Microfiction Monday, March 28th Edition ... Her Last Days


That chair was the only place she could rest, so I’d fluff her pillow and stuff it behind her back.

      “You cater to me so,” she’d say. “Please face me toward my old friend, the sea.”
 
Grandma's Goulash is now kindly hosting a microfiction meme called "Succinctly Yours." All you have to do is write a story (140 characters or less) about the photo. Every Monday she will post a new photograph. So sharpen your editing tools and give it a whirl! http://grandmas-goulash.info/2011/03/succinctly-yours-week-1/#comments

A tender moment in a fading life, at least she was comfy in her chair. ~ Calico Contemplations

The familiar can be so comforting. This story really spoke to my heart.

Thanks so much for participating in Succinctly Yours.

Nicely done. I've got my grandma on my mind today, and this reminded me of her all the more. No "telling" here...you "show" beautifully. Lovely.

I loved your letter to Miss F in the post above
I have a similar relationship with a Lady Dogwood who stood in the way of a wider driveway

Your great microfiction take has me thinking Little Mermaid! Perhaps this was her chair during her Happily Ever After?!
