“DON’T JUST PLAN TO WRITE – WRITE. IT IS ONLY BY WRITING, NOT DREAMING ABOUT IT, THAT WE DEVELOP OUR OWN STYLE.”  P.D. JAMES

OUR  PROMPT:  SOMETHING THAT YOU SAVED

Even the neatest of us save. It’s hard not to. There is always at least one thing that we can’t give up, can’t let go. We move it from one place to another when we move or we keep it in that special place with the hopes that no one will find it, touch it, or take it. I have something that I saved. I’ve held it so close to me that whenever I need to be lifted up I visualize it. I keep it in a special place so that I can always have it. I know where it is at all times. No matter where I go I know it’s with me. It can never be replaced no matter how many others I may see that are similar there will never be another one like this one. It’s always warm and soft. It always shows how much I’m loved and cared for. I can’t imagine being without it. I can’t imagine it not being there. I can carry it in my mind but mostly I carry it in my heart. It was always there when I needed it and it will always be there because I need it more now then ever. I am so blessed that I had it and will continue to carry it with me. I love it so much. It warms my heart and my soul. What can this be that can do all of this? What can it be that is always with me? It can only be one thing. MY MOTHER’S SMILE.

Yes, sit down and give the prompt some thought. I’m willing to bet that you do have something special that you saved. Tell us about it.
