What a sad story, and yet this sort of scenario is typical for so many people nowadays. Your lesson at the end is a good one. No matter how good everything around is may be, if we don't have God at the center of our lives, then we have nothing.

I appreciate you sharing this. It was well written.
You have painted this scene vividly, in all its sad reality. Amazing how just one person, so often striking out from their own sense of insecurity, can destroy a gathering.

Your story is an all-too-true reminder that the holidays are anything but merry for some people. I hope it makes us all aware that there are those who could use some encouragement and a friend during 'the seasons.' Good job!
Well done. This is so well written that if there is anything to fault it is lost in the strength of the story, Your characters are so true to life that everyone will find something they can identify with.
Without Christ, our lives, no matter how well they are dressed up, are ruined. Thank you for this.
