Tattoo Of Love

Mom and I were in one of our favorite restaurants the other day, and the waitress had a brand new tattoo — so new it was still raised, like embossing, and very bright. I asked if I could take a picture of it, and she gave me permission.

Isn’t that pretty? And the flowers each represent one of her children, with the colors of the flowers being the colors of the kids’ birthstones. Every time she looks at that tattoo, she’ll think of her precious children, although I suspect they’re always in her mind and in her heart.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: The next time you go to a store or a restaurant, really LOOK at your service worker and deduce or find out something specific about him or her.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I think it’s so sweet that she had the flowers made the colors of her children’s birthstones. Every time she serves food, she’ll see those flowers and have the pleasure of actively thinking about her kids. 🙂
