FFfAW-What Is It?

“What do you think it stands for?” Jerri asked.

“I think it looks like an eyeball,” Jemma replied.

“Well I think it stands for our oceans and how we are killing off certain species of whales.”

“I see what you mean.”

“It looks like the circle of life that is in our oceans and the arrows are killing this circle of life. The arrows stand for destruction by humans.”

Jerri looked at Jemma and saw how deeply it had affected her.

“Look, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you sad.”

“The death of the whales makes me sad, Jerri.”

FFfAW-Magical Jars

Philandro set up his little business on Sameway Street where most of the foot traffic occurs since the markets were on this street as well.

His pottery jars were special. In fact, they were very special, but very few people knew.

Whatever liquid was put into these jars, the jars would then produce a never ending supply.

Philandro had a hard time selling his jars because people wouldn't believe him that they were magical.

One day, an old lady decided to believe him and purchased one of the jars. She was surprised when she filled the jar with milk for her cats and the jar would never empty. She decided she would sell some of her possessions and buy all the jars that Philandro had.

The old lady filled all the jars with milk and was happy to see them always overflowing with milk. One day the jars of milk had all soured.

The moral of the story is:

Sharing with others ensure good things always grow but Greed will definitely stop that magical flow.

FFfAW – New Coffee

This morning I decided to try the new coffee I bought at the grocery store last Saturday. It's name is “Nature's Best Coffee.”

I put 2 heaping teaspoons full of the black granuals in my cup and added water from the kitchen sink. I then placed the cup into the microwave and heated it up for 1 and a half minutes.

When I took it out of the microwave, I couldn't believe my eyes. I didn't recognize the goop that was flowing over the sides of the cup.

Desperate, I grabbed the package and read the ingredients.

“Genetically Modified.”

“Damn!”

FFfAW-Bicycle for Two

I saw the boys riding their bicycle built for two every single day, right after lunch. I found myself looking forward to seeing them each day. Then, one day, I didn't see them.

I watched for them every day but they didn't show up. I began to get frantic. Where are the boys? Why have they stopped riding their unusual bike?

My mind went into many different directions and I decided to inquire about them.

I asked the corner grocer if he knew the boys on the bicycle built for two. He told me he did know them but hadn't seen them in several weeks. He had no idea where they had gone.

A patron of the grocery store overheard me asking about them and quickly told me what he knew.

The boys are brothers and the older brother left to join the military. The younger brother left for a boarding school.

Life changes so quickly. Not only for the brothers, but also for me. With sadness, I stopped watching for the boys each day.

FFfAW-Family Vacation

My husband and I decided to take two months off of work and go to as many beaches as we could. We had been saving for a long time for this vacation because Randall loves to kayak and I just love the oceans.

Randall was out kayaking and I was lying on the beach soaking in the sun when a young man came running, yelling, “Shark! Shark!”

Instantly, I jumped up and started looking for Randall. I couldn't see him and my heart fell to the bottom of my stomach.

I ran as fast as I could to the ocean and saw that everyone on the beach were panicking. Me included.

I strained my eyes to look for Randall and began to believe the shark had attacked him. Tears were welling up in my eyes making it difficult for me to see.

Suddenly, someone touched my shoulder and I automatically turned around. It was Randall. He had gone to get himself a hotdog.

I hugged him tight and cried, thankful he had become hungry.

FFfAW – RUN!

Running from my captor, I swam across the channel. No sooner had I got to land he came after me in his boat.

All I could think of was, run, run! If he catches me he will kill me! I must run and I must hide!

What do I do? I have ran so much I can barely catch my breath but he is still hot on my trail.

I told him I didn't know where the jewels were because I had nothing to do with them. It's Robert, not me!

Finally! He is leaving and I can breathe again.

FFfAW-The Right Path?

It was another lonely day and I decided to go on a hike. I moved to a new area for my career and I wasn't sure I had made the right choice.

The job is okay but all my friends and family live back home.

Walking along the trail I came across a brick path that goes to the top of the hill. It reminded me of the path I was on. All uphill. But I knew once I got to the top the downhill path will be a breeze.

I feel better now. I have selected the right path.
