"Mommy, why don't you tell us a story? We can't sleep tonight! Santa Claus is coming really soon! We have been very good! We haven't been naughty." "That's because all the kids know by now. The naughty list is not an option!" "What story do you want me to tell you?" sighed the overly tired young single mother. It was the same age-old tale. A young man encourages a young woman to have sexual relationships with him. In Brandy's case, it happened twice, from two separate men. After they discovered she was pregnant, they deserted her. As well as her unborn children. Mandy and Madison did not even know what their fathers even looked like. Dating was not an option because she carried excessive baggage. Two delightful little girls complete with blue eyes and golden curls.
"Santa Claus does know where we live? We know he loves to drink a lot of milk, and eat a lot of cookies." "Ho! Ho! You are right on the money about that Mandy! Chocolate chip cookies are my very favorite." "What those two good little girls need is a Christmas angel." interrupted Mrs. Claus. "Would an angelic helper, who is a little girl be even better?" "I think Wendy is available." Suddenly both Joy and Wendy appeared at Santa Claus' workshop located at the North Pole. "Will I finally be able to earn my wings?" asked Wendy. "Helping Mandy and Madison and Brandy is much more important than earning angel wings," responded Joy.
Brandy hid the eviction notice from her children. Why should she spoil her daughters Christmas? Why didn't landlords understand what the spirit of Christmas really was! She was an extra-board waitress at their local diner. Business was slow, and they had to let her go. They could not even afford to pay her for the short time she worked there. Brandy had to sell her car in order to buy groceries for her daughters. Since it was not in working order, she was able to only receive few dollars. Where could they go? Back home to live with her parents? Her telephone had been disconnected long before. She had lost her cell phone. If it weren't for bad luck, Brandy would have no luck at all.
Love as always,
