Hello Lighthouse Enthusiasts and Readers,
I owe you big time.
Please accept my apologies for not posting on this site as often as I used to. Believe me, I’ve wanted to, but other commitments have prevented me from doing so, and since it takes a lot of time for me to research each story, the other commitments took priority.
So I decided to do something special for you. I want to give you a Christmas gift.
Several years ago, I wrote a short story for a Guideposts book, A Cup of Christmas Cheer – Tales of Joy and Wonder for the Holidays. The book was published in 2013 and is no longer in print, so Guideposts has given me permission to share the story with you. If you like it, please go to https://www.shopguideposts.org/christmascheer34-3431.html where you can find similar books.
The story is purely fiction, but captures the isolation and challenges lighthouse keepers and their families faced, especially when they were alone on an island several miles from the mainland. I hope you enjoy the story. I’d love to hear your comments after you read it, and please share it with anyone else who might enjoy it as well.
