The Gifts of Friendship and Hope by Danyelle Ferguson
The Gifts of Friendship and Hope, (based on the song “Mary, Did You Know?”) is about Holly, a mother of two children–one of whom has autism–struggling through her first Christmas as a single mother. At the end of yet another difficult day, Holly can’t decide if she should use the little energy she has left to clean the kitchen or wrap holiday gifts. Especially when all she really wants is to go upstairs, sink into her bed and embrace the oblivion of sleep. When her best friends from the local Autism Society group arrive armed with treats, ribbon and bows, Holly is reminded that laughter and friendship not only ease away the stress of a crazy day, but add a big dose of hope for the future as well.
