REMEMBERING CHRISTMAS (DAN WALSH)
Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls begging him to come home after his stepfather has an aneurysm, Rick is more than a little reluctant. What was supposed to be just a couple of days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and dealing with the homeless guy who keeps hanging around the store. The one bright spot is the lovely and intriguing young woman who works at his side each day.
As Christmas nears, Rick’s old life beckons, the hurts from his past loom large, and the decisions he makes will determine more than just where he spends Christmas Eve.
This was an absolutely beautiful story of remembering, forgiving and never forgetting that who you “see” may not be who you really think they are. It’s difficult for some people to be kind at the best of times, never mind when you’re cranky and being uprooted from your job as Rick was in this story. However, what he ended up learning changed the course of his life forever. Just “remember” to take a good look at who you “think” you’re talking too! I would hope that everyone will read this story especially during this upcoming festive season!!
