This is a little something I wrote for ‘Six Sentence Stories’ on the site GirlieOnThe Edge. We are to write a story of exactly six sentences, this week using the prompt word ‘strike’. Thanks to Denise Farley of GirlieOnTheEdge for coming up with this fun and challenging idea. I hope you enjoy my six sentence story, ‘Colette’.

She is our miracle baby, the light of our lives, the most precious gift anyone could ever hope for.

No matter how miserable I’m feeling with deep-rooted arthritis pain that won’t let go, no matter how tired I am and long to hide myself away and do nothing but write, the moment she smiles at me my pain washes away.

She’s like a lightning bolt, a heavenly strike from the skies that penetrates the top of my head and courses its way down to my toes, spreading joy, happiness and love throughout my body.

She is Colette, our perfect 28-month-old granddaughter, with the face of an angel and the determined heart of a lion.

When I am with her there is no force that can strike me down for she fills me every day with never-ending joy and an ineffable love.

I love you, my sweet baby girl, beyond the moon and the stars and all the galaxies in the universe.

    1. Thank you, Yolanda! Such lovely comments! Colette inspires me so it wasn’t difficult to write about my muse. I love the name or your site – very clever!🌟 💕


    1. Thanks so much, Jaya. I’m beginning to sound like a broken record! Colette is a very special little girl and we are so blessed to have her in our lives. She makes everyone she’s with feel happy. 💕 🤗

    1. Thank you, Simone. I don’t know any grandparents who say “I can’t stand my grand kids”. I guess it happens but fortunately I don’t know any who feel that way. We’re very fortunate to have 4 terrific grand kids, each one special in their own way. There is something “other-worldly” about Colette; she is an angel – an easy-going, smart, intuitive, curious, precious bundle of joy. who lights up the world wherever she goes. We are blessed in so many ways! 🙏🏼

      1. That’s so beautiful, Nancy! I’m sure there’s something so uniquely special of seeing you and loving your grandkids. The offspring of the kids you raised with so much love, devotion and care.
        First I’ll try out parenthood and grandkids will certainly come many years after 😉


  1. “an ineffable love that defies understanding”…what a blessing when/if we get the chance to experience that!
    A Lioness she is!! And as the proverb goes:
    “A lioness does not need to roar to keep the crowd in awe.”
