Winter is a White Canvas for a New Beginning

I was afraid I wasn’t going to make it for this week’s prompt. At first I didn’t know what to do with the prompt, so I do hope it flows and makes senses to you as you read it. Please enjoy.

Prompt: …And winter will bring…

“Mom, look! Snow,” Timmy said as he tugged his mother’s sweater for attention.

Mom placed her magazine down on the coffee table and turned to the window.

“Beautiful, isn’t it?” she answered.

Timmy grinned from ear to ear as he nodded and said, “Yeah!”

Mom was happy to see him smile again. This was after all their first winter as two.

Moving from California to Maine had been overwhelming for Timmy, but he has been a brave boy. Sure, there are things he still doesn’t understand, but maybe it will be okay, because as his Grammy has said, “And winter will bring joy, Timmy. You’ll see”

And so far it has.

  1. A nice cozy scene: we believe that winter will bring joy to these two.
    I like the oblique treatment of their first “winter as two”, very much said in three words.
