It is still Friday somewhere, right? My apologies for getting this posted so late in the day.
As is the case whenever there is a “Wednesday’s What is It?”, my work of short-fiction exactly 100 words in length (aka a drabble) will reveal the mystery photo I posted on Wednesday. Before I get to the drabble, I want to congratulate Angel of “Chronicles of a Rocket Surgeon“, who correctly identified the mystery photo. Well done, Angel. I was delighted to have you play the game.
I hope you enjoy the drabble, and I hope you’ll come back again next week. I’m enjoying these weekly challenges, and I appreciate your participation. Thank you.

She wanted to make sure everything was OK. Going through his things was for his own good. She told herself.
She went downstairs and pulled a magnifying glass out of a storage box. She smiled as she read, “Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.”
