Weekend Writing Warriors #8SUNDAY Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hey friends, this is it.  This is the last time we meet before Christmas.  Have  a great Christmas, or if your enjoying the last of Hanukah, I hope you had an excellent time holiday as well.  Sorry if I left anyone out.  The most important thing that all of our religions seem to do around this time of year is to enjoy time spent with family.  This is why I decided to bring you these eight sentences relating to Christmas & Family, I hope you enjoy them!!


For a second nothing happened and then my brother walked in. I felt my mouth drop and my mother grabbed my arm as if to keep herself from falling to the floor. My brother’s kids went crazy, running over to him as he picked each of them up and kissed them on their cheeks. My mother walked over to him and hugged him long and hard before letting my aunt and me near enough to touch him. I glanced over at Sherrie and nodded at her, as if to thank her. When I finally had the opportunity to hug my brother, it felt unreal. He lifted me up like I was one of his kids and I laughed while frantically trying to get him to put me back on the floor. We broke away and I stood smiling at him along with my mother and aunt.


That’s it for this story friends, next week we’ll get into the second book of the Liliana Series.  🙂  If you would like to read the rest of my story, “Have Faith” click here for the download and get a sweet romance as a bonus- there are two books here for one great price!

  2. I could feel the joy in this snippet. A homecoming! The brother and so much love from the family. I feel that way when my son and his wife come back from Denmark. We can’t get enough of each other.
    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, Neva.
