"Cherish all the memories;
they guarantee life's immortality."
Father David's words of wisdom
after my friend took her life
on that day three years ago
nausea drove me to the church
where magical things occurred-
blessings never to be forgotten.
(You can read about this in my story, Signs of David found in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Tough Times - to be released Oct. 4, 2011)
Prompt inspiration: 3WW (cherish, guarantee, nausea)
wow! You are published in Chicken Soup! Cool!
I will have to go chicken out chicken soup when I get home. That is sad you lost your friend. But God does do magical things through our grief.
To be in Chicken Soup is a big thing. Can't wait to see it!
Thanks... I'm so excited. = )
My copies were waiting on my front porch this morning... they don't officially come out until Oct. 5.
Very inspirational!!...and Congratulations for the book release in which your story features!!
congratulations, though i'm very sorry about your loss.
what struck me in the piece are the magic things that occurred. you have successfully piqued my interest and i eagerly await the full read.
you worked magic with those three words...quite a beautiful and touching poem.
I haven't written to this prompt yet (I will - stay tuned), but just have to say that it is so sad when someone takes his/her own life. It must have been horrible when your friend took her life. It was awful for me when my good friend (you are a 'friend' of hers) had a son who took his life. Congrats to you for having a story printed in a "Chicken Soup..." book!
It was a very difficult time for me. I will never forget it.
I don't think you can ever forget it when you know the person.
Congratulations on being published in Chicken soup!
walking here with a smile. take care.. have a nice day ~ =D
