Our writing prompt for today is from Trifecta. In 33, one-syllable words, complete the story that begins with “The first time I saw …” After considering a few different ideas, I went with non-fiction.
The first time I saw …
… it, I threw it in the trash. I knew it would say no.
They all said no.
Hours passed. He looked at it.
“I don’t think it’s a no” was all he said.
Friday, February 12, 1999. The Day My Infertility Died.
What about YOU?
Can you finish the story in 33 one-syllable words? Here. I’ll start you off. The first time I saw …
Beautiful. ❤️ Made me tear up!
Thanks. Me, too. 🙂
Oh. My heart. I know that feeling. The day my infertility died is do much more than a phrase, or was a day of freedom, of hope, of belief.
This made me cry. Thank you for sharing it. Xo
Thank you, Kir. I’m sorry you know the feeling, too. We’re a couple of tough broads, aren’t we?
No one I’d rather be called a “tough broad” with than you. You’re an amazing person.
OMG you’re pregnant.
Dude, you make me laugh. And that’s not always easy to do. 🙂
WELL YOU’RE LAUGHING FOR TWO NOW!!! I’m so excited. Have you thought of any baby names? How about Bambi?
This is fantastic! Life changing!!!
You’re right about that, Gina! Thanks. 🙂
I cannot say I know how that feels. I seemed to be just the opposite even on birth control. But you explaining this is just beautiful and exciting. So sweet. Oh and no I can’t , as a rule, just use one syllable words I would go nutso..
It was harder than I thought. I accidentally slipped one in there a few times.
I got a little choked up. What a great baby watch story.
Thanks, Tara. It was almost as great to tell it as it was to live it. Um, almost.
That pretty much sums it up. 🙂
Fun story! Good to see you, also.
Thanks, Kymm. It’s always nice to say hello here.
This is too good. I’m jealous.
Thanks, Ann. Don’t be. It’s non-fiction. I cheated.
This is great! The response and the end of infertility 🙂
Thanks, Janna. 🙂
What a great post! Nothing is so life changing as those two little lines on the pregnancy tester; especially if you have been trying unsuccessfully for awhile, like my wife and I were. For all who have struggled to have their baby, let this post be the banner flying at the very top of the flag pole! 🙂
Awww. What a nice comment. Thank you for that.
What a wonderful little piece.
Thank you. 🙂
Aw, glad you were wrong:)
Thanks, Friends at Trifecta. 🙂
🙂 Awww! I love this one. Great memory! It’s a fantastic time to be wrong.
