Sending love and peace to the family of Life in the Foothills

For the past few weeks, I have waited expectantly for Monday because it became one of my favorite days for flash fiction only a few short months ago. I didn’t always participate in Monday’s Finish the Story, but when I did, it was always my favorite.

I knew the host, Barbara Beacham, was having health issues, but I think we all get stuck believing that everything is going to be okay. I was constantly amazed at what she continued to do while struggling so much with her health.

My first thought was that I hoped everything was okay, when every Monday this month I found my in-box empty of her prompt post.

Sadly, her husband posted her final blog today, letting us all know she lost her battle with cancer. I didn’t know her well, but it’s so sad to lose someone who has been a part of your life, even if it was a small part.

I am sending love and peace to her family in this very difficult time.

  1. I will miss Mondays, too. I pulled back from some prompts, Barbara’s included, because I needed to break my prompt “addictions.”
    I knew Barbara was ill, and I was sorry to learn of her death.
    I think you have said it well “I found my in-box empty of her prompt post,” as to how others will feel each Monday.
