This week, Hillbilly Duhn has thrown a creative challenge out to myself and all of her readers. First she makes me her first ever Follower of the Week and then a few days later threw out this challenge to her readers with the opportunity to win some great books.
You know me. I won't say no to a writing challenge.
I thought about all the games we would play when we were younger.
I thought about the silly things I did, because I was a child who didn't know any better.
I thought about the times I chased you down the street calling your name.
I thought about the times you curled up at the foot of my bed because you were cold.
At this point I usually wake up, and in the moment before I am fully aware of the world I look forward to seeing you again. And then I am awake, and it strikes me that you're gone.
I thought about Christmas 2007 when I surrounded you with balloons while you slept
And I thought about the last time you were truly happy, which was right here, in this spot.
