Caleb felt his side start to hurt. That ever-familiar stitch in your side that warns you to stop running. Fear grasped at his lungs, making it even harder to breath. He sucked in the frigid air, it’s dryness sucking his throat dry. He choked on the lack of moisture, and clutched at his chest in a futile effort to calm the fire in his lungs.
He pulled to a stop, the rocks in between the railroad ties rattling beneath his feet. Placing his hands on his knees, he looked back the way he had come. He probably ran the longest he ever had in his life. He couldn’t even see his usual marker that told him how far he had gone.Read More »

By God’s Grace,
Who can understand until they’ve been in that place,
The overwhelming joy as they gaze into that tiny face.
As they count each and every tiny finger and toe,
And kiss over and over again their little button nose.
That joy cannot ever possibly be expressed,
To do so with words, you would be extremely hard pressed.
So instead of words, actions must do;
With these is only true love ever shown to you.Read More »

This prompt was super exciting!!!! It turned out so fun! I love the sass and sarcasm that the MC totally just took on. I wasn’t planning her to be this way, but she had a mind of her own and ran away with the story, and a bit of my heart.
Also, just to let you know, my book BOUND that published as a serial here on the blog will be taken down in one week in preparation for editing and publishing. So, if you are in the middle of reading it, or want to give it a read before it comes off the internet, now would be the time. I will be taking it down next Wednesday, May 17th. Anyway, on to the prompt!
“Well, the best of the best weren’t available. . .so we got the best of the mediocre.” My boss, Duke frowned with his comment and avoided eye contact with the girls face.
“O. . .K. . . I guess I will take it from here.” I felt awkward, but I cut him a glare. He always was so rude.
He squirmed slightly under my righteous indignation and I felt comforted to know it had rung true. “Yes, well, I will get back to my office. Show her what to do.”Read More »
Welcome to Writing Prompt 034! This is the series where I take a random snippet or picture, and base a story off of it. I hope you enjoy this one. It made me cry. *sniffs* I need a tissue.
Carson wheeled into the driveway and killed the motor, a sad smile on his face. His little brother was going to flip. His mom poked her head out the door, grinned, then grimaced. Having her boys ride on a motorcycle wasn’t exactly her idea of a good idea, but she agreed to pretty much anything for Clay.Read More »
Some things last a lifetime.
And some things don’t and we are meant to say goodbye.
He was always there. It was not so much that he made his presence known unless he had to, it was more the sense of his there-ness. No matter what happened, he was always there, in the background, his quiet strength sustaining me. When we lost our daughter, when our son took his first steps, when that same son graduated and when our first grandchild was born. He was always there. Read More »
