The young lady who suffered in the fire with Daniel is still in intensive care. Though thought to have pneumonia, she was taken off the respirator a few days ago, so either this diagnosis was in error or is resolving. More good news -- she is communicating and responsive to questions and conversation. Please continue to pray for her recovery.

Welcome to today's microfiction! Hope you had a great weekend, and for those of us celebrating the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I wish you good cookin' and lots of great family time.
Grandma's Goulash graciously hosts Succinctly Yours, the wonderful meme for those of us addicted to microfiction. The trick is to write a story in 140 characters or less using the photo below as inspiration. To add to the challenge is the word of the week, "beholden." My story is below.
**Indescribable Gifts #1: Cannot Be Repaid
“I am beholden to Chief Massasoit,” William said, “How will I repay him?” “You cannot,” Mary said. “His gifts are so many and so great.”

Indescribable Gifts #2: Cannot Be Okayed
"So, hey, baby. Want a closer look at my cornstalk?" John asked with a wink. "Keep it in your vegetable steamer, Pilgrim," Anne advised.
** Chief Massasoit (also called Ousamequin, or “Yellow Feather”) was chief of the Wampanoag Indians when the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth in 1620. He negotiated a treaty with the Pilgrims on March 22, 1621. The Pilgrims were fortunate in this alliance as the bond with Chief Massasoit is credited with ensuring the success of Plymouth Colony. The Chief also prevented the Pilgrims from suffering starvation during the colony’s early years.
