A Cozy Blanket of Snow [100-Words]
She prayed each night before laying her head upon her makeshift pillow, thanking the good Lord above for her blessings.
It was the little things.
A new start—free from the terror of physical abuse. Food in her belly, a bottle of water in the center console. A crisp new library card and a stack of books by her side. A rare parking space in a No-Tow-Zone and adjacent to a streetlight, to boot, where she could read until her eyelids grew heavy. The soft blanket of snow insulating her temporary home.
Kindness of strangers.
A new job on Monday.
