Six Sentence Story: Season

This week's Six Sentence Story prompt caught me in a reflective state of mind.  With a birthday that ends in a "0" sneaking up on me in a few days, I guess that is to be expected.  And so, here are 5 sentences reflecting the past seasons, and one for all the future seasons:



The curly-haired, blue-jacketed girl follows the majestic collie down the lane.

A different lane leads to a new home.

Before you know it, the girl marries and has children of her own.

Addresses change, children grow, memories develop, and love works.

Photo:  A family photo where everyone has some sort of smile!


The children leave the nest, and the curly-haired girl becomes a grandma.

Photo:  The family, as it was in 2013. (Grandson has since been born.)


The rest of the story remains to be seen.

  9. So beautiful to share the seasons of your life. Those birthdays with the 0's at the end have a way of sending our thoughts back over the preceding ones. Your photos fill me with love.

    1. I distinctly remember turning 10, and how I felt so old, because I could count my life in decades. (Well, in one decade.)
