I sat in the waiting room staring at a picture hanging on the wall. It seemed so dark and dismal to me. I asked myself, “Why would they put such a dark picture on the wall of a hospital?”
My mother was in surgery and we waited impatiently for any news from the doctor. It felt like waiting for paint to dry.
Then it occurred to me. Of course! Everyone has dark moments in life and coming through those dark times makes us a better person. The picture stopped troubling me at that point.
Suddenly the doctor walked in,
“She is going to be okay,” he said, smiling.
Thank you Yarnspinner for our photo prompt this week!
My mother has been ill recently so I decided to write a story around her. (She didn't have surgery). But she is doing a little better.
