To Me – Re-blog

Charli Mills challenged us to write about the old photograph. I chose to use one from my early years. Be sure to connect with Charli and her remarkable 99-word flash fiction challenges every week!  Carrot Ranch

Chubby, little legs held her up to the table where her parents had placed the birthday items. Such a display of love and affection. Of course, as she was new to all of this celebration, there was nothing in her mind to understand all the joy and excitement.

Flash forward more than sixty years. Tears now fill the eyes of the senior citizen looking at the old photograph. Knowing now, that her parents had little or no money, but they still managed to make that birthday special. Knowing now, what beautiful gifts birthdays have been. She makes a wish.
