Friday Fiction: 100 Word Challenge

Torn, bleeding, naked, the little girl managed to pull herself up the river bank, miles downstream from the wreck of the family fishing trip.

Years on, she would wonder why God had even bothered to spare her, alone, while so cruelly taking her parents and siblings.
She never had an explicit answer under the sun. But as she grew into a woman of grace and power, the fact that she had been to the brink of death meant that she never lost perspective amidst lesser adversities, and her life’s impact was arguably greater.
Didn’t bring back her family; but honored them.
