For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction. Come, take what you need for there is plenty.
Not my typical story, but at times it’s important to reflect, and I am thankful.

Waiting For A Sign
Clouds seemed to press in from all sides as Sara trod down Bushwood Street, mulling over her available options. The rent would be due in just a few days. She was hungry and cold, hell, she was a mess both physically and emotionally. And there was no help, nobody to turn to. The old Sunday School mantra of “The Lord helps those who help themselves” rang in her mind and she would have laughed if she wasn’t already crying. She was trying as best she could.
She looked up. There, hung in the window was a Help Wanted sign.
