The Christmas present that wasn't...

‘Twas a few days before Christmas  and all through the Baird house, Forever Mama was moping and being a grouse.Few decorations were hung in the house with some care, Forever Mama’s arm strength was just not quite there.
Little B’s room was mostly finished, including THE bed!  And visions of LOA danced in Forever Mama’s head. When down in the great room the patience wore thin and Forever Mama wrote an email- she finally caved in.

And so as the weather went from chilly to cold, Forever Mama knew she had to be bold. The email was friendly, giving trip contact info for the beach, but also asking about LOA, even though it’s a reach

A ping from the computer, let Forever Mama know that an email was there. But should she open it? Did she dare? “We have not heard news about your LOA yet.”  We are hoping very soon, but are not willing to bet.

Forever Mama hung her head with a sigh, it was all she could do not to break down and cry. Forever Mama never asks for much, she just doesn’t, but NO LOA became the present that wasn’t.

As Forever Mama sat in a funk and wondered the reason, she began to remember the holiday season. Others are hurting with loved ones now gone, so much pain in the world what has gone wrong?

Forever Mama sent up prayers for those in need. With hopes that the world may now see more good deeds. So let us remember that Jesus is the reason and be kind to each other throughout this season.

So while there is no LOA for this Christmas cheer, Forever Mama and Big Sister look forward to Little B celebrating HERE next year!

For those of my friends who lost those who are dear, they watch over you now and are always so near. Forever Mama is praying for you with all of her might and wishing you a Merry Christmas and a very good night!
And to Little B who waits all alone, Hang in there son, we WILL bring you home!
