Trifecta's Weekend challenge

Another weekend, another Trifecta mini challenge. To Wit:

This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:
  • charge
  • century
  • lost
 I don't know why, but those thoughts triggered thoughts of my grandmother and some very strong emotions. For background on my grandmother and what she really means to me, please check out my other blog, The Rosary Project.



The Matriarch


She almost made it a full century.
She was our family’s strength.
When the world came crumbling down,
And she lost son after son to the catastrophe,
She took charge and saved us all.

Losing son after son is heartbreaking. And yet she saves them all. Great post.
