A Bonny Wee Lassie


Last decade, before we moved back to our present farm in the country we love so dearly, I was a careworker for a few years. This story is about one of my most frustrating but loveable clients who showed me once again how the greatest courage demanded is often in facing each hour of every new day – and getting through it.

Author’s Note:

This was a short story written to be part of one of the three One Million Project anthologies, planned to be assembled and published in late February 2018. The short stories are being donated by their authors from all over the world to attempt to raise 1,000,000 English pounds for Cancer Research UK and EMMAUS UK Homeless Housing and support.

It is an honour to be one of the contributors and because I wanted my story to be its absolute best, I welcomed any and all comments, suggestions, corrections, tweaks – whatever. I am sincerely thankful to those who helped me – I listened and carefully considered all suggestions.

The full story is reproduced on Wattpad in case it tempts a reader or two to join our efforts to help cancer research and homeless housing.

Thank you for reading this – please enjoy.
