Saturday Centus – Wk#151 – Prompt: Thank you Beryl! – 103 words – “Tracy”

20 Mar

We go through lives meeting many people. From the moment of our birth, we’re part of a family. As we grow, our circle of friends bring more people into our lives. School and work further increases our circle of acquaintances.

Each person we meet has an influence, no matter how slight, no matter whether negative or positive, on our growth as a person but there are some in our lives who have a profound positive effect on us.

We shout, “Thank you Beryl!”

You have been introduced to us through the love of your daughter and, in turn, have introduced us to Tracy.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I have a mother, now 82, who is growing frailer. As partial carer for her (she still has reasonable independence), it was very easy to place myself into the prompt.

      Thanks for the comment.

      I often look for a light-hearted approach to prompts but this one led me to more serious thought of the significance other lives can have on us as we journey through life.

    I love this intense look at a life.

    Your insight so often hits me right between the eyes.
