The writing prompt for Tuesday, October 16th, is "Hope"
There is Hope
The elderly couple rocked on their front porch,
lamenting the problems they were having with their car. "If only the repairs weren't so
high," said Sidney, "you'd think those guys that run the garage would
have a heart."
"Well, Sid, did you ask for a senior
discount?" his wife Louise asked.
"Yes, I did, and those lousy bums, they
acted like the little bit they will allow would come from their own
pocket." Sid had a propensity for
seeing the dark side of things.
"One thing going for us, we always have
Hope." Louise liked to keep cheery.
"That is one dang good thing, Louie,
"It looks like it is going to rain, we'd
better move our rockers in a bit," warned Sidney.
"Yes, let's do that, Sid. Would you help me move mine, please?"
"Sure thing, Louie," he replied,
"and would you help me with the buckets if it does rain?"
"Oh you silly old man, you know I will."
"Good, let us bring them in, for sure it is
going to rain."
"Oh Sid, aren't you glad that we have
Hope?" Louise piped up.
And while we are being thankful, we need having Hope with all the
trouble we've been having with the fuses blowing at supper time."
"And for the help when my achy back gets me
down." Louise was adding to the list.
"While we are thinking of Hope, thank the
Goodness we can bear to wear these torn clothes until the time comes."
"Hold on, I hear the phone
ringing." Louise always did have
"Well, who is it Ma?" hollered Sidney.
"Sid, Sid! It is Hope. Our little girl is coming for Thanksgiving."
