Susie’s Toys – Friday Fictioneers May 31, 2017



Susie looked at her poor toys. The three of them the firemen saved and threw outside. They were soaking wet from the firemen putting out the fire in her house and they hadn’t had time to dry yet.

As Susie gently dried her toys as best she could. Drops started and then there was a downpour soaking them again.

Susie said, “God is crying over our loss!”

A fireman said, “And he is helping us put out the rest of the fire. You’re blessed today, young lady.”

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    I been on fires in the heat of August where everyone prayed that it would rain. The biggest was at a lumber company… the fire burned for a week. It was so hot we lost a fire engine, melted the wheels first, then slowly the metal of the truck too. We were so thankful that no firemen/women died. I worked that fire and it was bad in every sense of the word. Your story reminded me of that. Thank you. 🙂 ❤
