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.
