Book Excerpt

As she busied herself washing the cookie and cake pans in the sink, she enjoyed peering out through the misty window panes, deeply dipped in the memories of "Christmas Past" that felt so close and seemed so real on this lonely white Christmas Eve.
She whispered a little prayer as she stared out into the snowy night,
" My Dear Grammy Ruth--
As I busy myself with all the familiar, traditional Christmas Eve chores, here in the midst of the details of my life-- you still remain in all my special moments-- in the whisper of a soulful prayer as I close my eyes and drift off to sleep at night--as I walk out on the porch in the earliest moments of the newly risen sun--as I gaze up into the pastel colors of the morning sky to welcome a new day--you are still there with me--as I peek out the windows to a beautiful snowfall on this Christmas Eve night, I throw out another I LOVE YOU, Grammy Ruth--into the great big universe and hope that in the midst of your own new, busy life of heavenly details.....you can still hear it!"
