“It looks like the star of Bethlehem that the wise men followed,” Sadie thought. “That’s a good sign. I’ll begin again. I’ll do better next time.”
Home again after two years of medical procedures and therapy, she was dependent on the walker, but strength and independence were returning.
Nagging thoughts: “Do I want the responsibility? Responsibility means making better choices. Responsibility means accepting blame. Responsibility means caring for myself. Responsibility means …… driving again.”
Sadie gripped the walker and breathed deeply. “I can and I will.”
Encouraged by the star, she chuckled, “At least I’ll drive a car, not a camel.”
Have fun with Rochelle on Friday Fictioneers:
