A number of our readers took our six-word story challenge expressing in a minimum of words their reasons for gratitude even in a minimalist Thanksgiving. Here are our favorites:
Can’t come. Will call or write.
Alone together with music to spare
Zoom in a time of stasis
Voters: GA, PA, WI, MI, AZ
–Karen Larkin Young
Only 35 more days of 2020
Zoom “recess” with Olive and Arthur

People who genuinely seek racial equity
Our garden has never looked better.
Walking by the lake every day
–Jean E. Shedd
And finally, a story with a creative take on the challenge:
In six words: Our grandchild tasting make-believe soup.
In five words: Some money in every pocket.
In four words: Dormant forsythia buds waiting.
In three words: Love you, too.
In two words: Let’s eat!
In one word: Amen.
