It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Lost for Christmas


Lost for Christmas

This is similar to Home Alone in that a family traveling in a motorhome miscounts after a stop and leaves one of the kids behind.


Duncan, 8 years old, is the youngest child in a family of seven. Dad works and Mom takes care of the family & home. One Christmas the family decides to drive to an Aunt's home for the holiday and the Dad's boss offers them the use of his motorhome.

At the first stop for gas and a treat of store-bought goodies, Duncan decides he has to "go real bad". He truly does but gets distracted by the paper towel dispenser and when he walks out to the gas pumps he finds the motorhome driving away.

Now, you ask, how could they have missed him? Duncan sleeps with a very large bear and took the back bed so when the child who counted saw a pile on the bed and the bear's ear, she counted him as there!

There is some comical situations, some prayer but not preaching, a miracle in a relationship and a happy ending.

Cute, quick read, small enough to fit in some of the larger card envelopes and get mailed with your Christmas cards.

My book is 5x7.
