Future Reflections, a story
by Emma Blue
She was only nine years old, but she could see things. In reflections, she could see the future. She could see her wedding in the reflection of a raindrop on a flower after a cloudburst on a late summer day afternoon. She could see the man she would meet some day, who would become her husband, in the reflection off a bead from her mother’s necklace. And she could see the future wrinkles she’d have on her face, in the small ripples that the wind blew across the little fountain in her backyard. And in the reflections of light off the bottom of a deep pool, she could see a funeral—whose she would not say. But at this last reflection, she was driven to tears.
She asked her mother, “why do I see these things?” And her mother said, “You must understand, that it’s not the future you see, for the future is never set or solid. What you see are only possible futures. Our imagination is a gift, and it helps us see the potential of all things around us, but what is to come depends on choice, and choice is always a mystery.” .
I'm sure so many can relate to this. ❤
