Next Chapter #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to November's Secret Subject Swap. This week, nine brave bloggers chose to submit a secret subject for another blogger to craft into a post, and were assigned a secret subject of their own.



My “Secret Subject” is: "Finally I found you", you hear whispered from a familiar voice behind you. Your heart quickens, your palms become sweaty, your knees go weak and wonder how this is even possible...
Finish the story of who is behind you.

It was submitted by: https://sparklyjenn.blogspot.com/ (Jenn, I oughta hug you for this!)

I turn around and see my father. How is this happening? What is happening? He died. He is gone. He has been gone for years now. Yet, here he is. Not the one hundred pounds of skin and bones, I saw at his funeral, but the strong, handsome dad from my childhood. There is a beautiful, young girl at his side. I look at her. She looks so familiar. Her chestnut curls frame her beautiful face. I look from my dad to her, and back again. Suddenly, I know her. I have seen her before, but she was tiny, when I saw and held her. She was not even a full pound. My daughter, my Kateri. 

Suddenly, I realize where I am, and how I got here. They reach out their hands to me, and I take them, and we walk hand in hand, into my next chapter.

Well, there you have it. My secret subject, and my take on it. Make sure you head over to see what subjects the other bloggers received, and how they handled them.



Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a drink, and check them all out. See you there:
