Microfiction: Indescribable Gifts
Indescribable Gifts is a great theme for today because . . . Daniel is home! After first being told that he would be in the hospital for weeks, he was released yesterday. His still has a long way to go and some painful processes upcoming; but his dad learned how to change his bandages, and because Danny was doing so well they let him come home. He’ll return to the Shriner’s complex in Cincinnati in a few weeks to be evaluated for skin grafts. We really couldn’t ask for a better Thanksgiving gift. I have no doubt your thoughts and prayers were tantamount in bringing this about. Thank you all, so very much.
The young lady who suffered in the fire with Daniel is still in intensive care. Though thought to have pneumonia, she was taken off the respirator a few days ago, so either this diagnosis was in error or is resolving. More good news — she is communicating and responsive to questions and conversation. Please continue to pray for her recovery.

Welcome to today’s microfiction! Hope you had a great weekend, and for those of us celebrating the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I wish you good cookin’ and lots of great family time.
Grandma’s Goulash graciously hosts Succinctly Yours, the wonderful meme for those of us addicted to microfiction. The trick is to write a story in 140 characters or less using the photo below as inspiration. To add to the challenge is the word of the week, “beholden.” My story is below.
“I am beholden to Chief Massasoit,” William said, “How will I repay him?” “You cannot,” Mary said. “His gifts are so many and so great.”
“So, hey, baby. Want a closer look at my cornstalk?” John asked with a wink. “Keep it in your vegetable steamer, Pilgrim,” Anne advised.
