Let It Snow
Itís Christmas Day 2001. We had decided to spend Christmas with my husbandís family in Missouri. I had never spent Christmas away from home in my fifty-one years, so it wasnít an easy decision. Four of my five children were out on their own, so they wouldnít be going with us. My youngest son, who was twelve at the time, would be going along. My son got it in his head that we would have a white Christmas in Missouri. Living in California, that would make for an exciting time, but I knew that the chances of it snowing right on Christmas would probably be very doubtful. My son an I prayed every day for a white Christmas.
We would be staying with my husbandís sister and family. We arrived five days before Christmas. Those next five days would be the most relaxing pre-Christmas, I had, enjoyed in very long time. My sister in-law informed me that there was no snow in forecast, in fact there had not been any snow on Christmas eve in twenty years. Christmas Eve we awoke to snow flurries, by noon everything was covered, and by evening we were knee deep. My son was overjoyed. What I remember the most was the wonder of it. The Lord had answered our prayers, a desire of our hearts. Itís Christmas Day and I feel the joy of being a child once more.

Cool!

If you ever re-do thin, think about making it more story-like, with dialogue between you and your son, for example. It will help your readers to get to know you better.

That must have been a very exciting Christmas!
