#100WCGU – Wk89 – Photo Prompt – 105 words – “Wishing”

15 May

A moment in time captured, a memory formed so many times brought to mind in future thoughts. The twins, so little, lost in their dreams. They stood close together at our wishing place. Did they dream of fairies and unicorns?

Years have passed. The twins are grown, now mothers to their own. My hair has greyed, my walk now slow, I sit surrounded by all that’s precious to me.

They see the photo.

“Do you remember our wish?” one asked.

They saw my questioning eyes, “We wished to one day be as good a mum as you. Happy Mother’s Day.”
