Timothy - 110. Chapter 110

Gramps had his annual Christmas party the last workday before Christmas. He had it catered to give the cafeteria crew a chance to join the party. Towards the end, he handed everyone their Christmas gift, a box of candy and cookies with a card that included a Christmas bonus. I gave the gift cards to the people who worked in my department. Gramps walked home with us.

I always felt that Gramps would have probably liked to have had more children. This feeling was confirmed when he was with our children, and I knew that he would be putty in their hands when our children were older. I told Stephen this, he laughed.

Christmas morning was something else. Mom and Dad arrived very early with Alex and Ann Marie. Stephen’s folks arrived within minutes of Mom and Dad. Gramps came the night before and stayed with us. Everyone was sitting in the basement, and mom, Ann Marie, and Stephen’s mom had made coffee and a tray of egg and cheese sandwiches. We were sitting around with tree lights on when Randy brought the children down. They were still sleepy, and the grandmothers took over.

I enjoyed this Christmas, family all around us, but we did miss John, Eva, and Eva Marie. “Do you think John and Eva are awake?”

“Call and find out.”

Stephen called and asked to speak to a young lady named Eva Marie. He said he was Santa Claus and missed her house last night.” Then he started to laugh. John and Eva said Merry Christmas, and they will be up in a couple of days.

That evening Donnie and the children’s mother appeared to me, and for the first time, Stephen also experienced this heavenly apparition. Donnie had whispered in his ear before, but this time he was able to see him and the children’s mother. I sensed this would be the last time I would see Donnie. I’ll always know he is around, I have a clone of him.

This ends part 1. A sequel will follow, in time

They got a thank you note from the Sisters. (I don't think this was the answer you were hinting at."

Great chapter,I suppose that Donnie senior also needs to move to to do other work upstairs he has definitely done his bit for all and sundry.

 

Thanks for such an entertaining read , you took us through all the emotions with AM, from hate to pity to encouragement, and all's well that ends well for now

The key words are 'for now'

Cal, what would we do without your wonderfully creative mind coming up with stories :read: that pull readers into them? 

Stories that make readers run the gamut of emotions.

Stories that make readers feel drawn to the characters. Believing in what the characters are saying, doing,  feeling, or a cause they are fighting for. Often involving children in distress, looking for help, and finding it. (When in the 'real world they can't find enough help). 

I gladly echo the comments of others with regards to 'Timothy'. Let us hope there is a 'Timothy' Book 2 (10 years later? 20 years later?) where Elisabeth and Donald grow up (imbued with the 'spirits' of her mother & Donnie 🫂), with Timothy and Stephen, despite not 'seeing' Donnie in their dreams, feel him guiding them. 

Thank you ©CLJobe for every gift you give us, n is and for years to come! 

:thankyou: :hug:

You are too kind. I think I have told you before my stories come to me in my sleep, I guess I have my own Donnie. There will be a sequel to this story. I have started my notes.
