Lets be real we all have dreams & goals that we want to accomplish. Its easy to get caught up in the grind, in being busy, doing good with school, sports etc that we dont take the time to Seek God first in all that we do. Sometimes what God has in store for us is way bigger or just on a different time scheme than what we originally had planned. “Not my will but let your will be done God”... #christianyouth #YoungSoldier #Pressingtowardsthemark #gembclayouth

📮Charlie yawned and stared at the date he’d written at the top of the blank page: 10 Dec 1916.⠀

He had fallen asleep, stuck on what to write her, and had just woken back up a few moments ago. I should write her, Charlie thought. The responsibility of now having someone to write to made him feel uncomfortable. He worried she would think him odd, since they hadn’t officially met. Charlie now understood why Ant didn’t speak of her much, nor write her that often; the more the desire to write her grew, the more he could feel his hardened blood beginning to soften and flow and bring a calm to his heart he wasn’t so sure he wanted out here.⠀

The blank page waited and Charlie felt fear creep in. He feared what would pour out if he let it. I shouldn’t burden her with my troubles, he thought, she’s undoubtedly got enough of her own.⠀

He folded the paper and put it back in his brass box, closing the lid with a snap.⠀

He paused before putting it away, studying the curve of Princess Mary’s neck longingly.⠀

I should at least thank her for the cake. She did make all the effort to bake it and send it and she won’t know it arrived and how much it was appreciated. She spent money to post it. It’s only right to send a short note in return.⠀

Before the reasons to write could be diminished by the fear, Charlie opened the box again and started furiously writing words of thanks:⠀

Dear Sweet Margaret,⠀

Can I call you Margaret? Maybe not. Dear Sweet Mrs. Merriweather, it is with a joyful heart I write you a note of thanks for the cake you so generously baked and sent. It went down a treat! There were many remarks of how the spicing was just right. I know you worried it wouldn’t be to our taste and in fact I am not one for fruit cakes, but this was the most delicious fruit cake I have ever eaten. Did it take you long to bake? I imagined you with a whiskey, while it was in the oven. And I hope you weren’t too out of pocket for the ingredients and postage. I imagine some of the ingredients might be harder to come by at a reasonable price. Now I don’t recall you having ever sent one for Ant? Did you? I’m sure it would have been lovely, had I had a slice.⠀

📮London Overheard Christmas Special - Day 8📮

Charlie gazed in surprised gratitude at the neat feminine hand that had scribed the simple note included in the Trench Cake parcel:⠀

5 December, 1916⠀

Please share amongst you. I hope the spices are to your tastes. My thoughts and well wishes, Margaret P. Merriweather, London.⠀

Charlie marvelled that the woman he’d just wrote had already sent through a cake in reply. Yet, how could she have received it already?, Charlie wondered. He’d only sent it yesterday and though the Army Post was efficient, surely they weren’t THAT efficient and in any event, she’d have to find a moment to bake the darn thing. Fruit cakes were never his favourite, but Charlie was eager to savour his share of this one.⠀

The rest of the men scoffed their portion upon receiving it, but Charlie wanted to wait until after dinner. It was to be a tin of cold bully beef and he certainly didn’t want the final flavour of the day lodged in his teeth to be that one. Charlie kept the muslin it had came in and gently re-wrapped his slice.⠀

After dinner, he wandered off to a more private corner of the trench. Settling in, he opened the letter to read the simple note again.⠀

He bit off a small piece of the slice and let the flavours absorb into his tongue. Eyes closed, he pictured Margaret at a kitchen table mixing the batter. The sound of distant shelling faded away and he smiled at the flour streaked across her cheek and the butter beneath her nails. The little Antony had told of his Margaret came back to Charlie’s mind and he saw her gazing out of her kitchen window at the night sky towards France, sipping a dark whiskey while waiting for the Trench Cake to bake. Charlie swallowed the bite and felt it catch for a moment as a sadness squeezed at his throat.⠀

📮Tune in tomorrow for Day 9📮
