Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along to read it and add a few encouraging words.
This month the words/prompts are supplied by Lissa and can be found here
This week's words/prompts are:
Here is my story:
“I have received an epistle from the church,” said Burton to his wife, Eliza. “What is it about?” asked Eliza. “It seems to be a request to help the children in the orphanage.” “What is it they would like us to do?” said Eliza, “we already faithfully donate money and contribute to Christmas dinner and gifts for them.”
“Yes, yes, as we should,” said Burton, “but simply helping with the welfare seems to be not enough. The church is concerned for the children’s spirit and happiness. They are short staffed and would like more people in the community to become adult companions, perhaps taking the children on outings, although I hope that does not mean taking all of the children at once, there are twenty of them.”
“Twenty is a lot to entertain all at once,” said Eliza, “but just think Burton, we could hire a bus and take them to walk beside the sea on a sunny day and one or two of the staff could come along to help. The new seawall was completed some months ago now.”
“That’s a splendid idea,” said Burton. “I shall pen an epistle of my own suggesting it to the church.” Eliza said, “If their answer is yes, I shall wear my new spring hat with the primroses on it.”
