When she meets Mark the handyman, she's intrigued that he's a man after her own heart. Problem is, his heart is already taken, by a girl that doesn't even know he's alive.

Then as a surprise is a Nancy Mae & the Sad Christmas Tree:  This is a short story for children about Christmas. Nancy Mae spent her time staring out the window for her parents. Like all the other kids in the orphanage, that first came there, she just knew they would show up and take her home. But they never did. And the only thing that interested her was decorating the sad little Christmas tree. The sisters told her that if all the kids would bring a prize possession for the tree, it wouldn't be sad anymore. But dare she give up a prize possession to make the tree happy?

Well, I have never been one to do Christmas Stories and this year I got in the mood. Don't know what hit me, but thought everyone probably already did so I joined in.

It was fun and I enjoyed it. It might interest some of you to know that Nancy Mae was my Mother's name. I fashioned the story after her, not really a bio though, just thought of her when I wrote it. A lot of people ask if you right about real characters, I don't, however, I'm not opposed to using names from the Family. My grandkids all have books I used them in. But anyway just thought I'd throw some whimsy into the mix.

Hope everyone has a great holiday and enjoys Christmas.
Blessings
