Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,


My Christmas thoughts I give to you isn’t just for this time of year, I would like it to last throughout the fifty-two weeks if possible. What’s more, there’s no need to wrap it and put it under my tree, because it’s not just for me.

You see, as an adult I have very few requests or requirements but perhaps more yearnings and desires entwined with others; does that change your purpose?

First, my wish for my husband; a job –but Lord Santa not just a job, a passion and livelihood where he finds stimulation and inspiration -something that doesn’t feel like work yet pursues a life’s desire that will also provide for his family. So can a financial backer be placed in a box?

Numerous family and friends are without this holiday season; without employment, without loved ones who have met their God or without funds to provide gifts for their children so I pose that you seek their true heart’s desire and make available some Christmas magic.

I invite you to wrap healing in a box with a glittering green bow- healing from physical wounds and illnesses as well as curative methods for whatever ails my loved ones suffering from mental anguish.

I request as most of us do that anger and violence in the world today be replaced with peaceful encounters that serve to better the world in which we live. Can you sprinkle some magical dust that promotes serene calm to nations, governments and individuals with personal wars to fight that may cause separation and division between friends and family.

And last, may the children of today, Nicholas included -be welcomed into this society with affection, acceptance and approval to be precisely who they are without ridicule or torment. May you provide strength to each to stand proudly for their cause and follow the path of their life with self-respect and dignity.

Thank you Lord Santa, and I will be certain to leave some cookies upon your arrival and my heart as you know will be forever grateful.

Merry Christmas to you and yours~

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a very Blessed New Year, Tracy.

If you have a minute today, please stop by my blog and vote for your favorite gingerbread house brought to you by our 2 oldest grandsons and their girlfriends. It's just a little Christmas fun that I baked up and they decorated. I hope you enjoy seeing them. Thanks!

Hi Tracy, We all should write that letter --not just at Christmas but year-round. People do need jobs. This economy is terrible and those guys in D.C. don't get it...Obama and family went on a VERY EXPENSIVE (4 million dollars) vacation.. Talk about being out-of-touch... GADS!

AND--we need to stop the bullying when it comes to kids/school. It's TERRIBLE...

Hope all of your wishes come true.. Maybe 2012 will be the best year ever...

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy

Tracy sorry I have been a BAD blogger and friend this past year. I hope to do better in the new year.
You have been on my mind a lot lately but have not come by here.
Your book is a must read for all who love their pets. I enjoyed it so much that I want to purchase another one for my daughter.
I hope in the New Year we can do a post about your book of Hurricane Doggy Dog.
This was a great post I always enjoy my visits with you.
Have a very Happy New Year
Love
Maggie
