Beautiful Christmas Spirit

Looking back, I don’t regret that I didn’t spend enough “Christmas Days” with my parents. We chose a different day to celebrate it; when it wouldn’t be interrupted with ex’s visitations, etc.
My mom and dad knew how much I loved and appreciated them. And the time we spent together wasn’t nestled between the times we had to be “there, there, and there by X o’clock.”
Ino has a successful son who was going to be in town. His responsibilities pull him thin and he’s unable to see his mom, as was ‘last-minute-planned.’
Ino’s caregiver is too quick to judge, but Ino understands. And she teaches Ruby to understand the season is about love, understanding, and tolerance - and everything happens for a reason .... and you can’t help but wonder about the presents!

Terry Murphy did a wonderful job, portraying the various feelings of the short story.

I would recommend this audio to anyone who needs a gentle nudge to get into or stay in good spirits.

A sweet, tender short story!

This is a sweet and tender short story that turned out to be a wonderful listening experience for me. In the past, I have only listened to a couple of short stories and was a bit disappointed in them. What a nice surprise to listen to Ino's Love! Ino is a lovely older woman who shows her love in such a nice way to her son and her caregiver and left me with sweet memories of my grandmother.

I was given this audio book in exchange for and honest and unbiased review.
