What You’ve Missed

Those who don’t follow my flash fiction and short story fiction blog titled Imaginings of a Grateful Man http://imaginingsofagratefulman.com missed about a dozen flash fiction and short stories in just the last week including those about:

A survivor of the doomed RMS Titanic

What WWII slave laborers in Nazi Germany do to help the war effort

How a young man who doesn’t listen to his mother accidentally starts a war

A group of women who devise a plan to escape slavery

Two stories about how fateful decisions change everything

How getting stranded on a deserted island is the best thing that happened to a man

A club of little old ladies makes a violent purse snatcher rue the day he stole one of their purses

With love,

We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders.

      No worries, Diane. I’m saddened to hear that your sleep issues are still heavily impacting you.

      • Actually Russ, I am starting to sleep more.. but I think my body has just been under stress for so long ..it’s going to take a while to get stronger… and there are a couple of other medical issues that I’m still dealing with…but thanks for caring…. Diane

      No worries, bulldog. I understand. My flash fiction stories tend to only be about three paragraphs long, so if you ever need a brief mental break from the many things happening in your life…
