This Is More Miraculous Than Funny

This weekend, Trifecta challenged us to write 33 words about taking a giant leap in honor of the anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. In light of the recent tragedy in this country, this is a great time to celebrate a miracle, or two. Bear with me…it’s another poem.

 

Despite the losses

And the fact

that I have a 30% chance

Of having a healthy pregnancy,

We tried again.

Her middle name is “Faith.”

The surprise boy?

“Miracle”

For short.

    Thanks for linking up this weekend. I was wondering how the events of the weekend might or might not be reflected in the writings here. I like your particular take on it. We could all use a little happy. Thanks for sharing yours.

      The weekend’s events had everything to do with this. We also had a tragedy nearby where a child died and another was seriously injured. It was a good time to count my blessings, then hug them!!! Thanks!

    Nice. I had trouble thinking of anything meaningful to leap about, but this? Perfect.
