Six Sentence Story: Reservation

Linking up again with Six Sentence Stories.  This week's prompt: Reservation.


She searched through the file cabinets of her brain, mentally pulling out memory after memory, then discarding them in a heap, promising to restore them to their proper place later.  

I've never had a humorous mix-up with a reservation?  How can that be? I guess I won't participate in this week's Six Sentence Story link up.  

Then, suddenly, as she embraced her hesitancy, the answer hit her like a heavy thesaurus.  She opened up her laptop and started to type.

    1. Thanks, Ivy. I should make it to this week's party, too--I just have to narrow down which experience to write about. Wind is a constant here in the desert.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good."

I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week.

Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
