This was precious - loved that she was wondering about the family in the snow globe. Good Job!

Wonderful! I suspected that something was "up" after several sentences...thought maybe it was a window display. Awesome twist, very clever.

I loved this--the imagery making a beautiful picture and the memories the snowglobe evoked. Great job.

Oh, my! You took me back to my Christmas times with my dear grandmother. Sweet memories and hopeful futures.

Wow- didn't see that coming...had to go back and read it again. Really well done.

You are a very clever writer! I really enjoyed this and I think it's time you were "movin' on up, to the East Side" (the Masters!) giggle. Kudos, no kidding!

I really liked this piece . It was a well-written wistful masterpiece!
Norman Rockwell painting is what I think of with this story. I can imagine the picture of the mom and girl staring into the little snow globe. Nicely written.
