Date – Six Sentence Story

After their last doctor visits Jeremy and his wife, Felicity, planned a series of trips across the country. They went from their children’s homes to those of other family members to friends making sure to mark the date so they would not forget to attend Sunday Mass wherever they were. They saw baby alligators lie on mama alligators’ backs in the Everglades, fancy roosters wander the streets of Key West, cold Alaskan glaciers, deep Arizona canyons, Rocky and Blue Ridge mountains and wide expanses of oceans with turtles, birds and seashells.

Some noticed the medications they were taking while others wondered about their talk of checking off items on their bucket lists. Regardless, they could be counted on to visit when there were births or weddings and to offer consolation at funerals leaving those they visited overwhelmed with peace.

In spite of the medications and bucket lists Jeremy and Felicity beep bopped around the country for another thirty years and the Lord visited them every day putting at the top of their list those who most needed to see them next.


Denise offers the prompt word “date” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

  1. Very nicely written Frank. I was pleasantly surprised at how many more years they had in the last line – I had thought that perhaps one of them had cancer and a short amount of time predicted left. Now I wonder if they learned that they a different diagnosis. Regardless, it’s lovely to know that they were able to travel around and be wherever they needed to be next.

    1. Good point. They probably did have some medical problems. Their bucket lists were to visit whom the Lord told them most needed to see them. In the process of obeying they lived a long life. Thank you, Anne!
