Welcome to Saturday Centus #92. Jenny's life is off kiltered right now so she is using prompts offered up by another fellow Centusian, Nonna Beach of Tasty Tales
This week the prompt is "Two peas in a pod" and the word count is still 100 plus the five words for the prompt.
now on to my contribution......
Mozell Pease and Delilah were inseparable since the day they met in Elementary School.
He shortened her name to Dee, she shortened his to Mo. They were like two peas in a pod.
Always together, they married after graduation and made it through 12 sons, 18 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and 60 years of wedded bliss, a whole lot of lovin’ went on in that union.
The day Mo Pease died, Dee’s zest for life ceased to exist.
One year to the day, Dee Pease was finally laid to rest alongside her beloved husband.
Their headstones read:
“The Pease are no longer in the pod.”
This is how my mother comforted us at the death of my beloved Mamaw Lena on January 6, 1969. She died on the 6th, was buried on the 9th in the year 1969. She was 69 years old and she died the day before my little sister's 7th birthday. It was very hard on us. The first time we experienced death. Mom would say "The pea is no longer in pod but gone on ahead to wait for us to join her in heaven." It eased our pain.
Please stop by Jenny Matlock's blog ( off on my tangent ) There's more peas over there creating more stories about this prompt.
Thanks for stopping by! ~Ames
