A Mother's Christmas Wish

A Mother’s Christmas Wish- By Jami N. Miller

Once upon a time there was a mother, her husband, and their three beautiful children. Two girls and one boy. The mom’s name was Holly Burlington, the dad was Nicholas Burlington, and the children were Christian, Angel, and Harmony. Christian was thirteen years old and was alway at a friends house. Angel was six years old and always stayed at home to help her mother with Harmony. Harmony was a two year old autistic child. She barely talked but she was a lovable child. She loved to play with her family but most importantly she loves to be alone.

Holly was a mother who went through a lot to earn the life she has now. She was raised by a strict family. Her mother and Father would not let her date until she was sixteen and she could not go to school dances or anything like that. Holly is only thirty-five and her husband is thirty-six. Holly has no career at the moment she is just a stay at home parent.

Nicholas was Holly’s high school sweetheart. when they first met each other, Nicholas would try anything to win Holly’s heart. He would always give her flowers and boxes of chocolate. Unfortunately he gave up, he was unhappy because she would not say yes to his questions. Then it happened, Holly came up to him one day and asked if they can hang out and talk more. Soon they started to date and after high school they got married. Nicholas works at a childrens hospital in their home town. But right now Nicholas himself is in the hospital. He has been in the hospital for three months. The doctors said that he would probably not ever come out of the hospital and that it would be a miracle if he did. Nicholas was deathly ill and on the verge of dying.

Holly was sitting in a chair knitting a blanket for Harmony. Harmony and Angel were playing with building blocks until Harmony got up and walked away with her stuffed bear in her hand.

“Mommy, why does Harmony keep walking away from me when I try to play with her?” Angel asked. Holly put down her knitting utensils and picked up Angel.

“Well, Angel,” Holly said. “Harmony is autistic, and with autism Harmony would like to spend some time alone than with others.” Holly said.

“Oh.” Angel said, her voice filled with unhappiness.

“Don’t worry, later she will come back to play.” Holly confirmed, which made Angel happy and then she was sad again.

“Mommy, when are Daddy and Christian going to come home? Are they going to be home for Christmas?” Angel questioned.

“Baby, you know Daddy’s in the hospital right?” Holly asked her.

“Yes, Mommy.” Angel answered.

“Daddy might not be coming back.” Holly said while crying.

“But he has to come , and Christian too.” Angel said.

“I know, Angel. I wish they can be here, I wish our whole family can come for Christmas,” Holly said. “Well, come on. Let’s go find Harmony and I’ll put ya’ll to bed.” She added while her and Angel went to find the wandering toddler.

“Harmony, It’s time for bed. Please come out of your hiding place.” Angel said nicely. Harmony come running into to hallway where Angel and I were. She still had a hold of her teddy bear.

“Hey, Harmony. Are you ready to go to bed?” Holly asked while picking up the child. Harmony nodded slowly and yawned. Holly took the girls to their beds and read them a story called “The Night Before Christmas”. After she got done reading it she made sure the girls were asleep and then she went to her bed and fell asleep.

When she woke up the next morning she could hear the children saying “Daddy’s home”. She immediately got out of bed and ran down stairs to see him hugging the girls and Christian. He stopped hugging them when he saw Holly. Holly started to cry while she ran into Nicholas open arms.

“Am I dreaming?” Holly asked.

“No, Honey. They let me out of the hospital this morning.” Nicholas said while rubbing her back.

“That means we can spend Christmas together!” Angel exclaimed while jumping up and down with happiness.

“Dada, look.” Harmony said while pointing at the beautiful green Christmas tree in the livingroom.

“I see.” Nicholas said while picking her up and walking to the tree.

“Mommy, your wish came true! You wished for Daddy and Christian to be back and they are!” Angel’s voice chimed in.

“Yes, and I would have never been much happier.” Holly said while pulling her whole family into a hug.

The End.

Sarge: This is very interesting. But you say that your heroine is 17 years of age. Then you say, "Until she reaches that age..." What age? You need to say which age that is.
