'You are my sunshine' - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus - Week 66

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to Saturday Centus, Week 66, Mrs. Jenny Matlock's writing challenge, where participants are asked to write a PG-rated text to a given written prompt, in any style or genre of writing, with a picture illustration (allowed this week), and using only up to 50 words, not counting the 4 words in the prompt. This is week 66 and the prompt is: You are my sunshine...
------
My text follows here:

John Tell returned to Florida, leaving Sanna without saying that he liked her. Sanna was hurt, and wondered if there was someone for her out there in the world for whom she could sing, 'You are my sunshine...'
At least, she had the children; her pride and joy. They were truly her sunshine.
------
Word count according to WordCalc: 50
------

Best wishes,
Anna

This is one mature and realistic lady...cutting her heartbreak short and then focusing on her many blessings...a great example of moving on with her life !

Children do have a way of bringing sunhine into our days

Ann said...

You did it once again. You made me think of my dad with your post. You are my sunshine was a song that my dad taught me when I was a child. He even taught me how to play it on the guitar :)

Be well, Anna.

Everyone has a bit of sunshine if they can only recognize it. Glad she did.

In answer to your question... the 'you' I am speaking of is our Prime creator, God. :)
Thanks for the lovely comment you left.

It is so good to have children because they will always be the sunshine. I do wonder if John Tell did like her though!!

rmannell said...

Anna, your story could be the words of so many people out there who long for someone with which to share their life. To have children goes a long way to filling the void. They will be there for life and the man in your story, John Tell, would be the loser for not being a part of their growth.

I enjoyed reading your story.
