You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.
Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.
“One more load and we should be done cleaning out the house!” my husband called as I carried yet another bag of stuff to the dumpster.
On the return I step on one more piece of paper. Bending over to pick it up, irritated because I have been picking up papers, sweepings, odds and ends all day.. Opening it, my eyes fill with tears and my memory is flooded with thoughts. It was a letter written to me by my oldest daughter, now married and with her own children. In childish script I read, “To the bestest mommy in the world I LUV U!!’
Smiling, still clutching the long forgotten letter, I go back into the house we had lived in for so long..
