could always
be here!

Do ordinary things with extraordinary love.

Anne is reading Christmas Tales by Miss Read

Mrs. Berry's stern gaze, which had been directed to a point about six feet from the ground, at a height where her enemy's head should reasonably have been, now fell almost two feet to rest upon a pale, wretched urchin dressed in a streaming wet raincoat.

At his feet lay Mrs. Berry's cake tin, luckily right way up, with her cherished Madeira cake exposed to the night air. The lid of the cake tin lay two yards away, where it had crashed in the turmoil.

"Pick that up!" said Mrs. Berry in a terrible voice, pointing imperiously with the poker.

Holly is reading The Christmas Doll by Elvira Woodruff

Lucy felt a pang of longing as she watched the kindhearted woman walk away.  If only she and Glory could go with her.  If only they had someone as strong and kindly as the washerwoman to show them the way.  But it was a momentary wish.  For Lucy had learned early on in her life that she was to be the only one they could depend on.  And she knew that somehow it was up to her to find the courage to see them through this dangerous turn their lives had taken.

Lily is reading There Was No Snow on Christmas Eve by Pam Munoz Ryan

Instead, a desert zephyr blew
and palm fronds sang a rustling tune,
to welcome the awaited birth.
