Christmas Plate by Anna
We sat down around the Christmas Dinner table at 6 pm. There was Sebastian, more interesting in all the gifts under the Christmas Tree, than the food. My mother vis a vis him and inbetween, my son Niklas at the end of the table with his wounded foot. Then our old friend F and then Ingelin, who had come all the way from Miami to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. On the other side after Sebastian Solvi was seated, then my brother and finaly Anna. I sat opposite Anna.

At 6:15 pm my cellphone called my attention. Who is calling this time on Christmas Eve? Someone dead or?
Brother and Anna
Oh no, it was my oldest son, which the family hardly see or hear anything from who called. He had some problems: No public transportation between 6pm and 9 pm. "Papa, I don't know what to do. I'm so desperate. What am I going to do"
I told him to try to find a Taxi and said I'll pay for that as a Christmasgift.
That was the surprise and special gift to the family this Christmas. We have not seen him for Christmas for more than 20 years. My mother could hardly keep her tears back.

And then the family had a very happy Christmas Eve with all the food, the presents and the songs around the Christmas tree. Sounds like Disney, but this time it was real.

Have a Nice Weekend and a prosperous new Year.
