MicroFiction Monday

Time for MicroFiction with Susan again.  This is going to have to be quick, as I'm in the middle of big doings at work.

As Susan followed her daughter down the road, she wished that the little girls path in life would always be littered with pretty things.

(and yes, for people who don't follow Susan, that really is her daughter! Adorable, yes?)

Pretty things make the walk better.

Very very nice interpretation of the picture. I think most of us tried to ignore or forget the fact that Susan said this is her youngest, but you put it right into the story, and so beautifully!

What a lovely "ponder," and something I wish for my daughter, Puppet (who is already 18 years old), everyday!

Always the best walk to take.

So sweet--epitomizing a mother's love for her little girl. I really like it.

Strikes a chord. We mamas always want our kids to be surrounded by happy things. If only we could make it so! Good MF!

Wouldn't it be great if all our paths were littered with pretty things?!
