Mindy's Hanukkah Surprise
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Mindy stared out the front window of her house, "Why did we have to move, Mom?"
2 "Oh, honey, you know your dad's job brought us here. I thought you were getting used to it," Mom replied, concerned over her daughter's sadness.
3 "I like my new school, and Rachel and Debbie are great friends," Mindy paused, a tear running down her cheek.
4 Mom rose from her chair and crossed the room to sit next to her daughter.
5 "What is it then, Mindy?" she asked.
6 "Hanukkah won't be the same without Papa and Gramma," she sobbed. "Papa always tells the Hanukkah story. I can't remember a time when he didn't."
7 "I know, dear, but you can call them. Papa can tell you the story over the phone," said Mom.
8 "It won't be the same!" Mindy cried, the tears flowing freely now.
9 Her mom held her close.
