Perhaps

Although it was a pleasant setting, Elaine’s nerves were waiting for a mishap.

Taking a deep breath, Barbara fumbled with her purse strap and made a wish.

Making her decision about an assistant was hard for Jasmine, causing a headache.

Oddly, as Elaine was waiting for her interview, a call came from her doctor.

She stated, “We used the wrong patient’s information when we went to diagnose.

Stepping into the waiting room, Jasmine saw both women huddled, in an atmosphere of caring, Barbara’s arm around Elaine; Jasmine spoke, “Ladies, I hope this works to your understanding that I will need two assistants and you two are the only applicants for the job, when can you start?”

…..

This is a continuation from last week’s Six Sentence Story, “Struggle.” I just couldn’t let these ladies end things the way it was.

Struggle – Six Sentence Story

Struggle

Entering her zip code, Elaine focused on the task at hand, knowing it was the most important job for which she would apply.

Counting the change in the bottom of her purse, Barbara placed the coins in stacks, realizing she had just enough for a round trip bus fare to the interview.

Entering the code in the key pad of her office, Jasmine knew she would have some heavy decision making to make about who she would hire for her personal assistant.

Calling the doctor’s office, Elaine entered the code which ensured it authenticated her, only to hear the answer she needed to know, the news, if bad, would be a nurse and the phone redirected to the nursing department.

Barbara walked into Jasmine’s office, ready as she could be for the job interview, she had a job, but she needed to supplement her income, due to the high bills from her husband’s medical treatments; Keeping him always in the back of her mind, after the funeral, she knew he would be there in spirit.

Elaine hung up the phone, went to her computer, emailed to Jasmine’s office, confirming her appointment, she needed this job more than ever, but she also knew it would offer her no promises in her life.

Padded – Six Sentence Story

Padded – An Acrostic

Placing the filling in the pouch, she holds it in the palm of her hand.

Asking if it feels natural to her friend, she hands it over to the waiting woman.

Doubts run through her mind as she worries that this tender moment will cause her friend dismay.

Delighted with the weight and texture, her friend nods approval with a big smile.

Elated on one side of her emotions, saddened on the other, less seen, side of her emotions, she grins and moves in for a hug.

Dejected since the operation, she held her friend, gently at first before tightly gathering her close, knowing that only a true friend would understand and allow her heart to fill, true friendship is never padded with false intentions.

Waving – Six Sentence Story

Waving – An Acrostic Six Sentence Story

When life is moving forward, past present tense, there will be many waves accomplished, challenged, and freed, just ask elders about them, but experiencing your own makes life all about the meaning of waves.

As one moves forward the waves of goodbyes come often and with many meanings, such as goodbye to those who you will see again, goodbye to those you are happy to leave, goodbyes where you don’t want to ever leave, but nature calls them or you and those goodbyes come with inner waves, the ones you cannot see.

Vigorously working on life’s goals bring on waves of excitement and anxiety all in a nice bundle, sometimes depression, along with stirrings which cannot be named.

In each life there are also waves of nausea, heart breaks, fears, tears, and laughter, emotions can come in waves.

Nothing, but nothing can completely control any of the waves if they are to be organic; as much as we try, it’s natural to have all kinds of waves, but the scariest of all are the ones without control.

Going forward in life is important, but standing in the waves for the present moment, toes sinking in the sands, allowing a chance for the stance to take hold, may be just the wash that is needed.

Escape Is In the Finding – Six Sentence Story

Escape Is In the Finding

Every day is a survival from the prior day or even the millisecond before each new moment.

Survival is not always of the fittest.

Caring for one another is essential to making each day better over all.

Ask anybody who has had to go it alone about how it feels to not have another soul.

Placing our feet on somebody else’s path for just a moment helps our own path.

Escaping from the singular mind to the knowledge that we are all interdependent can make all the difference in the world.
