And a switch in attitude. You've profiled some strong emotions without laboring the point. I love the way your MC warms to hope in spite of what's been happening in her family, as the grandchildren live out the beauty of the prophecy of Is 11:6: "... and a little child will lead them." Have a wonderful Christmas.

This felt very real. I'm sure many people experience this during the hoildays. Very good story. Cute dialogue. I enjoyed reading it.
I've lived ina life that was shades of gray--you describe it very well and give hope in a situation that is often hard to see. Very well done.

Beuatiful and painfully realistic. Thank God for His healing. Excellent work!
Thanks for sharing. Aren't grandchildren grand!
Great story of joy being restored. Thanks for sharing. Well done.
An excellent title. A very nice sorrow to sweet story. I like the toddler's exclamations of "Kissmas!" too.
Beautifully told story. Joy that comes from little grandchildren is better than any pills.
