Alice stood back and admired her handiwork.
‘Do you think Mom’ll see it?’ she asked.
‘Yes honey, I’m sure she will.’
Taking another bauble out of the box, Alice placed it on a lower branch.
‘And who’s that one for?’
‘Grampie, and this one, ‘ she said with aplomb, ‘is for Gram.’
Fishing something out of her pocket, she tied a piece of string to it and hung that up too.
Charles laughed.
‘That’s for Pip, isn’t it.’
‘Is it bad for me to miss him the most?’
The dog biscuit swung gently between the baubles of Alice’s ‘family’ tree.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    We love who we love – we miss who we miss. Alice has found a lovely way of dealing with her grief. Well written.

    All the “feels”!

  6. Aww, such a sad yet sweet tale.
    Aplomb is a good word too! Well done.

  7. How much we miss people has nothing whatever to do with right or wrong.

    Kids and dogs are often such special friends, no wonder she misses him most. Beautiful story.
