Flashback Friday

Yesterday's winner is.......MARTHA:) Email Jamie at and send her your snail mail addy:) Congratulations!

Dec 1990:

My 25th birthday was slightly bittersweet. I went home and discovered my very 1st boyfriend was engaged, and their wedding shower was to be held that evening. Since my mother was invited, we went out to dinner and then stopped by. I had not seen S in probably six years, so we had a brief catch-up after the shower. His fiancee had been one of my sister's youth counselors at church, so I already 'knew' her, somewhat.

A few days later, I happened to have the night off from work, so I drove back to Indianapolis and spent the day with D. He took me to lunch at Chi-Chi's and we finished with dinner at the Olive Garden, plus he surprised me with a tiny cake. His roommate's wife was home from school that weekend, so the four of us went to a bar and I taught D how to throw darts.

Christmas that year, I was unusually quiet. I was at my parent's house again, having successfully 'ditched' The Idiot for the day. I slipped away to call D, who had gone to his parents' home, and wish him Merry Christmas. The next day, I drove immediately to his apartment and spent the afternoon with him.

Little did I suspect a huge change was about to take place.

Come back next month for the rest of the story!

See you tomorrow for Saturday's Stupid Saying:)

Can't wait to hear the rest of the story. I like the idea of flashback friday, especially if the story is going to build to something big.

This is an interesting story. I feel for this main character. I would love to win a copy of your book for our church library.
God's blessings for a Merry Christmas! Sharon Troy Centanne, Church Librarian

Marie, I've noticed the '0' years seem to be traumatic ones! Why? Who knows? At 4/5, I got a new sister. 14/15, I had my 1st serious crush. 24/25, I made a decision which changed my life. And now, we're in a tough financial situation. We're praying '11 will be much better!

Sharon, I presume you're talking about Jamie Carie's story The Snowflake?

Thanks for stopping by ladies:)
