Five Sentence Fiction – Cherish

The Five Sentence Fiction is a simple idea:
Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
This week, Lillie chose the word "Cherish," and this was the vision in my head.

***

"Cherish your life, your love, and your dreams, dear friends," he spoke at our wedding.

"Know that love has entered your life, understand the power of your dreams, and work to bring them to glory."

The room was silent as we all listened, never before were there such wise words from him -- he who used to tell us fart-jokes and belch.

Hidden within each of us is a gem, concealed, and each facet has the chance to brighten a life.

As with all things: keep the luster, and cast away the stone.
