Daily Prompt: The Road Less Traveled

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision.
Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us OTHER.

A short story of fiction, to fit the occasion.

It was a stormy evening, much like the past week of every evening there being storms.
 She laid curled up in the bed with her dogs thinking about her day.
She thought about the turmoil that her hubby’s drinking caused each day.
It had not started this way.  She had no clues in the beginning to know.
He did not drink at all the entire time they had dated, right into their first year of marriage.

Had it been the four friends who had died within a month of each other?
Was it the straw that broke the camels back to make him lose his will power?
Rationing seemed to work some days, then there were the days that he was too much.
She would walk out and just hand him the small remains of the bottle to have a moments peace.

As she looked around at the devastation going on around the world she wondered if it was better elsewhere.
To start again, at her age.  The thought sounded so exhausting.
She watched her friends and their relationships.
Some appeared happy, yet she felt a sense that all was not right with them either.
She looked around her own life and thought about what was good.  
She looked at what had been built by the two of them in a relatively short time.

Perhaps running away was not the answer.
She prayed daily for an answer and each night before she closed her eyes.
Hoping that God would show her what was the right thing to do
She had a lot invested in the relationship just to call it quits.

It was a long and winding road ahead and she knew it.  
Was it a fork in the road where she had to make a decision?
Could it be that just a few trees had fallen to block the path she was currently on?
She decided to just rely on her faith to get her through.  
She would let God handle the situation as she had in the past.
She knew this was the only answer that made sense to her.
