Beginnings

She watched the busy birds as they flew to and fro building their nest. 'They will have babies soon', she mused. 'And I never will,' crept in the thought unwillingly. It was weeks since she'd lost her unborn child and the hope of ever having one. Days passed but she stayed in bed feeling drained. Drained of energy and emotion, she lay watching that nest, staring with unseeing eyes.
One morning she woke up to the lively 'cheep cheep' of tiny birds. And then suddenly it moved.. that lump in heart. 'Let's adopt a baby', she said to her husband.


It's Day 6 of the Marathon Bloggers Drabble Week and the topic for the 100 word drabble is Suddenly it moved..
