Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words are:

Ginny remained in Thomas’s embrace, her eyes closed, tears coursing down her cheeks. She thought planning the wedding was confusing enough without her mother’s help. She had to rely on Thomas’s family, who had taken her under their wing. They knew she was worried about her mother and the toll her illness was taking on her, although she never complained. She just did what needed to be done. Now it was over. She and Thomas had kept their promise to her mother and to the church and remained celibate and had not experimented with being lovers other than kissing and snuggling. She intended to keep that promise even though her mother was no longer here to guide her through life. She was completely on her own. Her father had abandoned her mother as soon as her heard she was pregnant. There was no child support and her mother had worked hard until the first stroke felled her and she couldn’t work anymore. She was a great lawyer according to Benjamin Zimmerman, the number one lawyer in NJ. She worked for him and was his number one lawyer on staff.
Ginny still occasionally sees Mr. Zimmerman, as he would come to see her mother quite often. She was just entering her teens when she realized that her mother was having a relationship with Mr. Zimmerman. He was a dapper man and quite handsome. He was older than her mother, but that didn’t seem to bother them.
“Miss Ginny,” the nurse came out of the room after her mother’s body had been taken away. “I have a list here that I was supposed to follow and then inform you. I called the doctor first of course, and then I put in a call to Mr. Zimmerman, her friend and lawyer. He says he has to talk to you. Your mother left something in his care and he needs to see you as soon as you feel up to come to see him in the office. He says he understands if you need a few days to digest all of this, but he needs to talk to you as soon as possible.”
“Thank you, Myra! I will call him tomorrow and set up an appointment. Maybe he can help me with the funeral arrangements or maybe that is what he has that my mother left in his care. I am a little lost right now.”
Thomas hugged her and she started to cry again.
