Happy late Friday, dear Readers! Today I am going to post my Friday Fictioneers on time! Woo hoo! As always, a special thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, who spearheads this marvelous group of writers, and to Bjorn Rudberg for today’s photo. Enjoy the story!
All She Has Is Faith
Hush little baby, don’t you cry, mama’s gonna sing you a lullaby…
Tasha holds her little one close, rocking him gently.
“Daddy doesn’t know you yet, but he will. I’ve sent him a letter.”
The baby whimpers and whines, and Tasha continues to rock him and speak softly.
“When he gets it, he will come for us, and we will be a family.”
Tasha lays her son in his cradle and watches him fall sleep.
“He’ll come, I know he will. He said he’d love me forever.”
She thinks if she says them often enough, the words will be true.
