100 word story challenge

T. Wayne over at A joyful process invited me to take part in a challenge to write a 100 word story and although my mind is still moving into awake mode, I think I managed to do okay. The challenge has rules of course, and with the 100 words you can go over by no more than 10 words. You can nominate who you wish but I think you should at least pick three to make it fun. 

I wrote this as a letter to friends, all who reside in this blogger space and one up in the stars. The gift of friendship is a pure and joyful experience, one I didn’t have as a child or young adult, not in any true sense but the way we reach out to others here, in this place, and the gifts of beauty and words of support can make a heart soar when it sometimes forgets that it is not alone in this world. I value the friendships forged and this is a letter to everyone and no one…but you know who you all are.

Here is my 100 word story/letter.

We were at times sitting in the darkness of this world alone. Why you left I don’t know. A life burned into ashes, moving on the wind. I could not reach you, in darkness I could not see you and that was so empty a feeling. Your words like the wind, blew back to find me, with life and hope I knew that a friend even in absence was still there, out in space watching, waiting and like a gift from the stars, you’ve returned to shine your special light, reminding me it was ok, to dream and live fully. 

I received a beautiful quote this morning from a friend and it touched me so deeply that I needed to include it here, to share with the world this special gift.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Peace and love
