It's Christmas Time, Let it Snow. It was five days before Christmas in Colorado Springs. Everyone was shopping for Christmas except poor old Mrs. Mary who had six children with no husband and no job. Mary was thirty-five years old and loves to work with little you know. This woman worked as a warehouse worker until her job downsized and was forced to go welfare and food stamps. Mary always took things in stride and tried not to worry and thought of ways to survive even without work. Mary had four girls and two boys. Their ages range from 6 to 12 years. Mary had given them odd names that remind her of Christmas because they were all born in December.
Their names were Snowflakes, Noel, Mary, Joseph, Bethlehem, and Christmas. These names should sound familiar because all deal with Christmas.
Mary had been out of work for 6 months and she was hoping for another ware house position, so she can purchase Christmas gifts for her family.
With only 5 days left, it seemed like a year.
Mary started crying about her life circumstances, and want to make things better.
Her friend across the street noticed that her children were outside in the cold playing basketball.
Sally is Mary's neighbor who lives across the street in a white house and saw Mary's children playing outside. Sally asked if their mother was home. Snowflakes nodded. Sally decided to walk over to Mary's house and visited her.
Sally walked inside Mary's house because the door was open. Once inside her house, Sally saw Mary crying her eyes out, and asked, "Why are you crying?" Mary responded that she was broke as joke, because she had no job, and no money for Christmas season.
Sally responded, "Please don't Cry, it will be alright". Mary looked up with a glance in her eye and half smile. Sally said, "Mary, when I am down I get hold of my magic rock and put it in my pocket or under my pillow."
