Take Your Time

It’s okay to take your time on that New Year’s Resolution to write more often. Just 50 words a day can keep you going. I’ll be away from the blog for a few days. I hope you’ll take your time exploring past prompts to find one tickle your creativity while I’m away.

Please use the open space below to share your first 50 words on the topic “take your time.”

  1. There are times for split second decisions and there is time to take your time. I am at the time to take time. Before me lies three roads. Each road serves a different purpose yet all three beckon with attractive interest that tickle my creative senses. I’m thinking can they be entwined.

  2. She waited patiently for him to get to the car. Maria had driven their car out of the garage and up to the front path. He always had been a slow-moving deliberate person but now his movements had become even slower since he’d reached his eighty-first birthday that fall. Unfortunately, his vision was now so poor that he finally admitted he was no longer capable of driving safely so she was the designated “chauffeur.” She could not believe how this ate into her time. Where before he would leave the house alone to run an errand or take the dog for a walk, he now needed to be driven. She also was afraid to leave him alone at home. It wasn’t only his vision that had deteriorated but his memory. She’d found the basement door left wide open one night after he’d been out in the garden. It was also a bit of a concern when she would find the gas stove burners left on. It took a certain amount of training herself to remember to now check every little thing. She found it difficult to add on to all her other responsibilities. Maria worried about what might happen if she pre-deceased him and he was left alone. It seemed as if all she did of late was worry. She knew once she came up with a strategy she would worry less but it didn’t seem to be easy.
