55 Fiction #2: Untaught


Her eyes looked around for a hint of affection. A pair of eyes to acknowledge her presence.  What pained her more was how comfortably everybody moved on and how they believed that she also should? Tears rolled down her eyes. He taught her everything but, never prepared her for this- losing a husband at sixty.

Nice. :-)

Losing ANY of our dear ones is going to be heart-breaking, and NOTHING can prepare us for it.

Here's a blog post that I think is beautiful.

@Vijitha
I followed that link. Beautiful post. Thanks for sharing.

@Adam
I'd heard about it(6 words story) in Advertising class. We were discussing how to say more in less words. Nice. Thanks for sharing.

Ah! This was so tender and it struck a chord within. Life does not prepare us for these moments but it sure makes us strong.

I wish you a wonderful week ahead, dear Sameera.

Joy always,
Susan

Very touching. Life does not prepare us for such moments. But the love we hold in our heart and the fond memories sure give us strength to go on.

your posts just brush the inner most vaults of the heart and unlock a flurry of memories and a stream of tears that were held back fitfully, forcefully for the reason that 'you shouldn't appear weak before the remaining loved ones.they may turn weak themselves'...wonderful.painful.
