She walked through the empty room, teddy bear clutched to her chest. She read the verse upon the wall: Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV
Silent tears slid down her cheeks to think that before her little boy could come home to this room decorated with Noah’s ark, he had gone back to his heavenly home. Her heart was empty. Her arms were empty. This room was empty.
He slid silently into the room, wrapped his loving arms around her.
She leaned against him, closing her eyes, absorbing his warmth, comfort and strength. She silently praised the Lord for this man who helped her be brave and strong through this trial. It was no mistake that she had married him.

Thanks Sue! My Flash Fiction Friday posts just seem to come to me on the spur of the moment and I write them. I’m glad you enjoyed this story. Real life isn’t always happy, so sometimes my stories aren’t either.
Sad with a touch of hope. I enjoyed the read as much as one can enjoy a sad tale. 😉
