Christmas had lost its charm and wonder. Mrs. Rush hated the feeling but was powerless to fix things. Traveling to visit relatives for the holidays, the Rush children pass the time with their eyes glued to the screens of their devices. That is, until the flashing lights of a State Highway Patrol car bring their trip to a sudden and unplanned-for stop.
My Favorite Character is Lester, he reminded me of my little brother J with all his energy.
My Thoughts: This was a great short story and it is a little too easy to see where Mrs. Rush was coming from with her wish that Christmas would be different. I hope to read it with my siblings soon!
My Verse for this story: Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (King James Version.)
