Reflection on the Beach

Arriving at the beach, she reflected on her life. She had lived long and experienced life to the full. She had had such fun with Ross: their antics may have got them into trouble but they had seized the day! She remembered cradling Megan in her arms. Motherhood was one experience she treasured – especially after she had lost Ross, the love of her life. She had never loved with that passion and abandonment again; yet Rory had brought to her a sense of peace and contentment. His love had calmed the sense of agony she had felt after the accident. Listening to the waves crashing on the shore, she smiled. She heard them now, the voices of her grandchildren and the rest of her family. Soon they would be next to her and yet she knew she was ready to go and meet Ross; she had done and seen everything life had to offer. Soon the pain would be over and the act of living complete.

  1. Nicely told story of a life! Thank you Colline for joining in on the MFtS challenge! I hope that you had fun with this and that you will return next week! Be well… ^..^


  2. A bittersweet story so well told. I can feel each of her experiences, and understand her choice to join Ross so that she can be with the love of her life again.
    I felt your story on an emotional level; I felt like I was sitting next to her, learning about her life.


  3. This is so real. Life can be so sad and still so good also. You touched my heart with this writing. You are such a talented writer.
