And I spend it alone—again— watching another Hallmark original.
“There must be something to these sappy Christmas movies.”
I glance outside my window, at a flower dying yet withstanding the blizzard, close my eyes and exhale, hoping my breath will blow the dusting of snow off the flower’s bulb, and my Christmas wish will come knocking, at last.
