Christmas Stories from my Heart
What if your greatest Christmas gift was a warm meal, a soft bed, or the kindness of strangers?
What’s your most unforgettable holiday memory?
For Christmas, I’d like share four unforgettable and heart-felt stories from my life.
What if your greatest Christmas gift was the kindness of strangers?
The first story is titled “Our Christmas of 1971”. At 11-years-old, my younger sister Cheryl, my mom, and I found ourselves without a home in Hartford, CT, over 3,000 miles away from our native San Diego. Here, I share the story of how that Christmas in 1971 taught him the true meaning of the season.
The next one is titled “Unexpected Guests”, which was first published in the book A Chicken Soup for the Soul Christmas in 2007. It’s the story of a Christmas Eve I spent in Germany in 1981 with a wonderful young German couple while serving in the U. S. Air Force. After having lost touch with them for almost thirty years, I now live near them in Germany.
Also included is a special story titled “Hands”. This one might not seem like “Christmas”, but when you get to the end, you’ll surely agree it’s what this time of year is all about.
The final story is titled “Sweet Potato Pie for Christmas”. It’s more of a present day tale and its theme is similar to most of the stories in this collection. It shows how diverse cultures can come together in harmony, in spite of our differences.
More than a writer, I consider myself a storyteller. So…sit back and relax, my friend. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and let me tell you my Christmas Stories from my Heart.
