Julie looked inside her dad’s workshop and shook her head at the mess.

“Dad, I was after you for years to clean this place up! Now that you’re dead it’s up to me.”

As she looked  around, still muttering sadly, her eyes fell on a plaque on a corner table. She stepped closer as she recognized the shells on it. Those were hers from when she was a kid! Her dad kept them all these years.

Julie picked up the plaque and saw written on the back in her Dad’s shaky handwriting.

‘To my daughter who always made an old man proud.’

  1. Dear Jackie,

    What a sweet story. Apparently her dad knew his time was short and left her a wonderful gift. I’m sure she felt much better about cleaning up the workshop after that.

    On a teeny grammatical note…”now that your dead…” should be “now that you’re dead.” 😉

    Aside from that, nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  2. I’m thinking you must be feeling better. Your writing has a softer edge in this piece. That sign and the saved treasures would turn around the most sour of children. I didn’t notice the grammar of it. It was just warm.
