We’ve been sharing insight into the stories that make up Warm Mulled Kisses. If you didn’t get the chance to read the Christmas letter by Lena Nelson Dooley’s heroine, Scarlett, you can find it here!
Mark it on your calendar! November 12 is party time – WARM MULLED KISSES style! You’ll hear more and more about our “Mistletoe Madness” as the day nears, but today’s author is offering up her house as our party place. Not sure there will be much left when we’re through! Glad J.A. Marx is the generous type!
She, along with Sydnie Shreffler, created the story “Christmas Apples.” The heroine, Bailey Chapman offers our Christmas note today.
“Dear Santa, or St Nicolaus, or guy behind the white beard and red suit.
I don’t celebrate you and materialism bugs me. As a single mom and widowed pastor’s wife, i’ve learned look to a source of real help. Jesus. Yes, I’m slightly cynical. And lonely. My kids desperately need a dad, and you can’t fix that. I’ve got to do something with this huge estate that’s been handed down to my son, and I’m overwhelmed by the task. Your “magic” can’t fix that either. I’ve been grieving for 5 years, and I think I’ve reached a stable point of heart. That’s really all I want to say…and I just realized you’ve just given me a Christmas present: a listening ear. Thanks for letting me unload my emotional stuff on you.
P.S. I love apple cider.
