Friday Fictioneers: 4th October 2019

Once again thanks to Rochelel Wisoff-Fields for this regular challenge.
You can find out more here:

Our picture this week is provided by Dale Rogerson.
Alone and lonely, she sat in the park of her youth and remembered.
Remembered happy days of swings and roundabouts, screams of glee, delighted laughter, the security of a warm embrace and strong arms.
The tears fell.
‘Show me a sign.’ she begged inwardly. ‘Give me a reason to believe you are watching over me.’
Minutes passed and the night lights came on, one brighter than the rest with an added glow of intensity. Two signs warped, one depicting open arms to greet another walking head bowed into them.
She felt their warmth and knew she was no longer alone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I felt a tightening in my chest reading this, Di. Beautifully done.

    How comforting that would be! I believe God does allow us some sign of hope in our greatest grief. It may take awhile for us to see it.

  10. Yes, I’d call that a definite sigh, A good story, Di. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne
