A Wish Granted

I wanted to go but had spent so much on gifts for Christmas.  The seminar was coming up in January as well as the need to buy a birthday gift for my daughter.  How was I going to manage my budget and eek out the money for that ticket?

Christmas morning…a ticket gifted to me.

Tony Maude is our host over at dVerse Poets and asks us to look back at previous Forms For All and Meeting the Bar prompts and choose one to revisit:  I chose Getting Tight in Here (55 word poems or prose).  http://dversepoets.com/2014/01/09/meeting-the-bar-looking-back-looking-ahead/.  Thanks, Tony…enjoyed this!
