Melanie's Anchor of Hope The early morning sun streamed through the window above Melanie's desk. She held in her hand a letter that could affect the rest of her life. She was afraid to open it. Melanie now held a degree in business and with the help of her uncle she had a chance at a position with an import-export company. They had offices in Florida and California. She requested Florida since she lived in Atlanta and was terrified of flying. The only thing that scared her more was boats and water. She smiled as she thought, “I am trying for a job in imports and exports and I cannot stand the thought of a boat no matter how large it is”. She knew big boats sink just like little ones. Her Uncle Bob said, “You don't have to drive the boat you will work out of the office. Jim Kelly promised me you would work in Florida. I didn't tell him your fear of the water but I think he knows”. Suddenly she grasps the phone and dials Uncle Bob's number. When he said hello she was in tears. Uncle Bob's heart almost stopped. “What's wrong darling,” He asked? “I'm afraid to open my letter from I & E,” she sobbed. “You scared me sugar,” Uncle Bob softly spoke. “I was there the day Jim had the letter mailed. It is good news I promise,” he replied. “I want you to box up and pack all your personal things. You're Aunt Kay & I will be there in a few hours. Put the letter away until we get there and open it then,” he asked?” “You are all the family we have now and we would like to be with you and share the news with you. There is one little part I need to tell you about but it will be fine. Jim understands, he knows we lost your Mom & Dad a few years ago,” softly Uncle Bob replied “You have every right to be afraid of ships. Melanie you will be living in Florida in a few days. You're Aunt Kay & I will help you find an apartment. You can stay with us as long as you like,” he insisted “Thank you for being there for me” Melanie said. “We will always be here for you. You are the Daughter now we never had,” he insisted. “I love you and we will see you in a few hours,” he replied. “I love you and please hurry but be careful,” Melanie sighed. A few hours later Uncle Bob and Aunt Kay parked their oversized pickup out front of Melanie's apartment. They had much more been out of the truck and Melanie was in the arms of her Uncle. He was the only Dad she had now. In her prayers she talked to her mom and Dad each day but today she needed a Daddy to hold her. She felt so safe when he was around her and she loved him so very much. Aunt Kay had her turn with all the hugs and kisses. “Have you eat regular meals, do you get enough sleep, do you need money,” Aunt Kay asked? Melanie hugged her again, “yes-----yes----and no Mommy,” she said with that loving smile. “You must not eat, you can't weigh much over 100 lbs.,” she pleaded. “I promise I eat than I have to work out just so the scales will not read over 125,” replied Melanie. “I know,” said Aunt Kay, “That's why you got so many offers from all the model agencies”. “Model's have to travel on planes and ships and Melanie is a big chicken,” replied Melanie. “Uncle Bob took her hand, please sit down sugar,” he asked? Open your letter and read what it says. Don't make a decision just to please Aunt Kay and my self. Jim Kelly and I were in the war together and he thinks he owes me for carrying him out of a war zone. With the grace Click here to read the rest of this story (733 more lines)
