My Grownup Christmas Wish List

My Grownup Christmas Wish List

As a child I wanted things for Christmas. But now that I’m older, I have a grownup Christmas wish list:

  • Quality time with friends
  • Going home
  • Pajama days
  • A friend for everyone
  • Dinner surrounded by family
  • Hanging out with relatives I was too shy to know when I was young
  • An end to poverty
  • Swimming in the river where I grew up
  • Candles, candles, candles . . . and some flowers too
  • Snuggling with my kitties
  • Laughter
  • Honesty
  • The benefit of the doubt
  • A bountiful garden
  • Helping people to pass away with dignity, respect, and love
  • Inner peace
  • Freedom
  • Vibrant energy
  • To be appreciated

Oh, and I wouldn’t mind some great food and spectacular wine too
