My clever seven-year old knows exactly what she wants. Not only did she write her wish list in a beautifully crafted letter to Santa, but she took the time to explain why she really wanted each thing listed. For example, the first thing on her Christmas list is a kitten. Then, in red ink she wrote "I really want a kitten because they are cute and I love kittens."
This inspired me to write my own Christmas wish list.
1. I wish for exuberant joy: What does that look like? I want to shake with uncontrollable laughter that reaches my core and overflows with joyful tears.
2. I wish for beautiful family memories: Not just memories to occupy my mind, but fun-filled moments, delighted faces and loving embraces that remain alive in my heart forever.
3. I wish for a clean, well-organized desk/home office: If the house-cleaning fairy or Santa's elves can pay a visit before Christmas, that would be so appreciated.
