The girls were getting ready to leave to the Christmas party.

"Mom, we're leaving! We'll be back before midnight before it begins to snow."

Suddenly, I saw one of my girls look toward the table, stop, look down, and see there the shiny green and red ornament adorned with small diamonds.

Her father had given one to each just before he left to go overseas. She picked it up in her hands ever so gingerly and held it close to her heart.

Magpie Tales is the vision of Tess Kincaid. If you would like to participate, just post your poem or vignette--based on Tess Kincaid's photo prompt--on your blog and link back to
