Gifts from the River

With the rising water, Jeanne knew visiting Thelma on the other side was impossible. But Jeanne and Thelma knew what to do. At the assigned time, they signaled each other with their flashlights: Operation Recovery began. It was their self-assigned task to rescue as many items as possible, washed down from upstream.

Jeanne cleaned up her newest gift from the river, setting it with the others by the window. Thelma would be doing the same. Soon they would share their treasures with each other, making up stories about the objects. The river that sometimes separated them also brought them together.
