This week’s prompt is “RUBY”. I found myself being influenced by some Stones. Sorry the theme is similar to my last story. I think they complement each other.

Goodbye Ruby

Monday, she’s the office executive, toiling long after the others have left.

Tuesday, she’s the doting mother, kissing away pain and remembering to listen.

Wednesday, she’s the caring daughter, running errands for those who no longer can.

Thursday, she’s the volunteer, giving to society for no financial gain.

Friday, she’s the exercise freak, working out to work off all the excess grams.

Weekend, she’s the cleaner, the cook, the hostess, the party-goer.

They’re full of praises. They say she’s wonderful. They’re amazed she manages to do so much. I know one role she’s forgotten about. Goodbye Ruby. I’ll miss you.
