So here is the final post that tells the story of Jennifer and Sam. It has been a thrill to write as well as challenging but it has brought forth ideas for next year and ways to liven up the post with a format – more on this to follow.
As it is the final post, I have decided to include a bumper edition! So two sixty word stories for you this morning as we bid farewell. I would just like to say thank you for reading and also commenting as well. It means a lot to hear feedback.
So for the final time this year, the story of Jennifer and Sam.
Red and gold tinsel was placed around the tree. Baubles of different sizes hung off the branches. Ornaments collected over the years joined them. An angel topped the tree, hands held out in prayer, looking over mother and daughter. “Daddy would have liked this.” Jennifer held back a sob and thought of their last Christmas together. “Yes he would have.”
The table next to the seat that Sam had spent many a time, reading Christmas stories to Elsie, eating mince pies and drinking hot chocolate, held a photograph of Sam, Jennifer and Elsie posing with a snowman. It was their last Christmas picture as a family. Every year, Jennifer and Elsie would light a candle. Sam would never be forgotten.
