The Missed Party
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     "I'm sorry, Abby," said Mom as she sat next to her on her daughter's bed. "I think your cold is bad enough to keep you from going to the birthday party today."
 
2     "But, Mom," said Abby, "my throat is not as sore as it was yesterday."
 
3     "I want you to be a whole lot better before you go out anywhere," said Mom. "Until then, you need to stay home."
 
4     Abby's throat felt tight, and tears came to her eyes. It wasn't fair. She had waited so long for Carol's birthday to come, and now she was going to miss it!
 
5     "May I go downstairs?" asked Abby.
 
6     "Sure," said Mom. "Maybe you would like to help me pack some boxes of old dresses and things to go to charity. I don't have room for them anymore. Perhaps we will find something you would like to have."
 
7     "What about Carol's gift?" Abby asked, suddenly remembering it.
 
8     "Don't worry, dear," said Mom. "I sent it with your brother. He will tell Carol why you can't come to the party."
