Default Title Help

I don't know about you guys, but I am horrible at making titles for stories. So here you can just post a little summary of your story and hopefully some talented title makers will help!

I need title help for a story I am writing about a young mom who just figured out that her husband died in WWII during Christmas (yeahh pretty horrible). Some "inside thoughts" that are pretty important is the song "I'll be Home for Christmas" a white christmas, they have a daughter... here's an excerpt if you need one.

“I’m sorry,” Justin muttered, wiping his nose on his sweater sleeve. “I’m such a coward.”
“No, no you’re not.” Teresa said defensively, jumping up to her husband’s side. She gently turned him around so he would face her square in the eye. She pushed away all other emotions and tried to keep a dry face. “You are the bravest man I know, and I am really not just saying that. Justin, do you hear me?” Teresa’s hope failed, and her voice cracked as she pulled Justin close. “You are the bravest man here at home, and I know you will be the bravest man on that battle field.” Tears slipped down her cheeks as easy as a knife through butter. “When you’re fighting out there don’t remember you have a beautiful daughter and a wife who loves you more than anything in the world waiting at home. “ Justin pulled Teresa closer, whispering, “I will never forget. And I will come home as soon as I can. Before next Christmas. ” He pulled back and looked at Teresa lovingly. “I love you Terese.” Teresa smiled and put her hand on her husband’s cheek. “And I love you.”


Thankies.

"Blue Christmas"
Like, people'll think that someone's missing their lover who's away or broken up, but when they read it, they'll get that the title is an understatement, and sometimes those really, really work c: I'm sorry, but that's all I got >.<

I'm terrible at titles too, but there are all wonderful. I like Max's.
