Welcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.
Today, I’m sharing a snippet from my Roxanne & Jonathon Love Story. I’ve been building it one flash at a time.
I picked today because it’s the first anniversary of my father-in-law’s death. I miss that proud Navy man and wish we had at least one more day to enjoy his company and his wisdom.
It’s been a tough year for all of us, but it’s been hardest of course on my mother-in-law. She lost her best friend and husband of fifty years. Her sorrow is deep and you can feel it hanging over her. I worry about her all the time.
At this point in the story, Roxanne and Jonathon have been separated by the villains, also known here as the Fates. Unlike my MIL, I have full control over Roxanne’s happy ending and I’m determined to reunite her with Jonathon. Until then, today’s flash is entitled “Her Power” Enjoy.
It had been a year. Roxanne had felt this day coming. It was like a black hole pulling her towards the one thing she wished she had the power to change.
She’d spent the year trying to find a way to move on with her life. The Fates had won when they’d taken her Jonathon. They kept winning each day they kept them apart. The sharp pain in her heart nagged at her to move on, but she continued to pray she would find him again, that this horrible monotony would be broken.
She walked through the woods surrounding the cabin they’d shared during their last days together. It was her first trip back here. She’d thought it would hurt more, but in this place her memories seemed more alive.
In that moment, she knew she couldn’t move on. She wouldn’t. Not until they could do it together.

Many blessings to you and your MIL. Great tease, SJ. 🙂
Heart wrenching tease. S.J 🙂
Sorry I haven’t commented in a while – real life has been kicking my backside. Fab tease!
Sorry about the loss of your father-in-law. It’s beautiful to see the wonderful relationship you have with your in-laws, and it’s obvious what a special man he was. Here’s hoping the continued passage of time makes it easier for all of you to bear the loss.
