Saturday Centus: Life Worth Living
Jenny gave us a prompt to work with this week. Her prompt:
you could have had it all....We were challenged to include the prompt and write a total of 106 words. Easy... well, not as easy as it looked! My mind whirled in all directions, and finally a picture formed from the dust floating in my brain. I hope you can see and enjoy the picture I tried to create!
“Did you read this?” said Ma, “you could have had it all! He’s a billionaire, a few times over,” Ma said, shaking the newspaper in my face. I glanced at his picture. His jaw was set with determination. His eyes were focused on some distant goal. Had I stayed with him, would I have had it all? I looked around the sun dappled kitchen. Midge slept in a patch of sun. My toes nudged Jeremy’s dinosaur, forgotten under the table. I patted mom’s arm as we shared the morning and a cup of coffee. Everything I needed to make my life worth living was right here.
What is something that makes your life worth living?
