A Christmas Story

This was the first Christmas, which she was planning to celebrate with her kids in delightful way. Before that every Christmas spent, in the worry to provide something to eat. She was a single mother of two kids, while her husband was died in car accident almost three years ago.


This was the most difficult time of her life, as she has to raise her children alone, and no relative was around to help her, as it is always said, no one will come to help you in your difficult time. In the beginning she survived on the savings, which she and her husband were having for the future of their kids, but no one was aware about the coming tragedy.


But after few months she was penniless, so her only worry is how to provide living for her kids. She started to knit sweaters and other warm garments, to get at least a meal of three times. She worked hard for day and night, but could hardly manage to fulfil their necessities throughout these years, so it was not possible for her to make her children happy at such occasions.


At every Christmas, her children asked her to buy their favorite toys, they wanted to receive the gifts from her, as their friends were used to get from their parents, but they were unaware about the hardships their mother was passing through. So they only wanted to enjoy the Christmas in majestic way, like all the other kids. Her little daughter was only 6 years old, but at the previous Christmas, with teary eyes, she gave her favorite hair tie to her mom, and said,


"Mummy go and sold it, to buy Christmas gifts for us...I want to see the Christmas tree in my house, filled with gifts. Mummy please!! Go and do it for once...!"


She burst into tears and hugged her daughter tightly, she said,

"My little princess...I promise you, your next Christmas would be delightful, like all the other kids."


So to fulfill her promise, she started to collect money till the next Christmas, she worked hard day and night, and able to collect enough money, to at least buy gifts for her kids and to embellish their house with Christmas tree and other accessories. The month of December was started, she was happy that, this Christmas would be delightful for her kids.

Special requirement

But sadly, before she could buy anything for her kids, some of the thief's came and stole all her money. In the morning when she woke up, everything was scattered in her little house, and nothing was inside the money box, she was left penniless again. Seeing this, she began to cry. All her hopes were shattered, and she couldn't utter a word. What about the promises which I made with my children? How would I be able to face them? So this Christmas would be same as before? These were the questions which were running in her mind.

Here I used tomatoes with chilies.

But suddenly, someone knocked at the door, she wiped her tears and went to open the door. A man with beard was standing outside, he gave her a white envelope with grateful words. He came to return the debt which he took from her husband few years ago. She was speechless, but tears fell down from her cheeks with gratitude. She was happy, that now she would be able again to celebrate this Christmas, with her children in delightful way. The little gloomy house was filled with happiness again.
