I believe in Santa. Yes, it's true. I am a Middle Aged woman who believes.
So when I sat down to figure out what I want for Christmas this year I realized that I don't need much. Oh, sure we need new plumbing in our old house but we have that under control and the fix is coming. Let's be real, in 2014 I sold a house, bought a house, got married, gained a daughter, and a new truck. I am pretty set.
So here is what I want for Christmas:
-ISIS to go away and all the prisoners to come home. Santa has enough room on his sleigh to do what the U.S. Military can't, rescue them!
This is a tall order even for Santa so he is going to need God to help and our prayers.
-The protection of good police everywhere:
Yes, there are good police, in fact most of them are good regardless of what the media would have you believe.
-No matter what your politics, I ask for wisdom for the POTUS in the last two years of his presidency. Not that I am going to be sad to see him go, but we have crucial times ahead and he has to get us through them so until we get to elect someone stronger in World issues, Santa, give him courage.
-Ebola & Cancer:
Santa do you have a cure in that bag? Can you bring one? While you are at it, cancer has been plaguing us forever and I would sure appreciate a cure for that one personally!
In the Middle East to begin with and basically everywhere else. I am exhausted watching the news. We need Santa to pull out a peace pill or something.
Maybe I expect too much from Santa. After all, these are our problems and we got ourselves into this mess so we need to get ourselves out but it sure would be nice if we could all remember, especially at Christmas that we are all human and we share this little planet. We should try and get along while accepting our differences and celebrating our commonalities. After all, we are mostly the same, red blood, flesh, brains that we tend not to use most of the time, and a lot of untapped forgiveness and love.
