A Christmas without Food

I spent last Christmas very sad.

            There was no food.

But

            I gave thanks to God

for spending Christmas with my children.

            They are my reason for life.

The traditional foods in Guatemala:

            tamales with chicken

            chocolate cupcakes

            apples.

They burn rockets in the sky in celebration.

Only God knows where we will spend

            this Christmas.

Only God is able to

            get us out of this place (family detention).

Only God is able to

            bring us to my family this Christmas.

They live in the United States.
