I sending you my Christmas list now, so as to avoid the rush. This year, the only thing I want for Christmas is the chance to see my whole family together. I want that traditional family dinner, where all the adults sit in around the big table, while the kids all sit as the card table.
I have jewelry to last me a lifetime. Each year, I’ve gotten at least one piece of jewelry that I’ll never wear in my lifetime, but because of who gave it to me, I’ll never get rid of it either. I love all the bracelets that my daughter has given me, I adore the necklaces my husband has gotten for me throughout the years, and I’ll always cherish the rings my mother-in-law has passed down to me.
I have all the gizmos and gadgets that any kitchen can hold. I don’t need another piece of machinery that will slice, dice, puree, or flambeau. The products I use on a daily basis while cleaning my house are just fine. I don’t need a fancier iron for my clothes, or a robotic vaccum that chases my cat around the house. I’m very happy with the ones I have.
I just want to remember the little things that make the holidays so important. I want to watch the next generation learn the traditions that have been passed down through the years, and help in the creation of new traditions they’ll take with them.
Dear Santa, I just want one day with all those I love and cherish in my life.
P.S. A laptop would be cool too.
