Dear Santa…I know I am writing this kind of late but I figure that you’ve probably been busy reading everyone else’s letters any ways and what better time then on the eve of the birth of Jesus?
I’ve tried really really hard to be a good girl this year but of course there is always room for improvement. Presently, I am on the naughty list, (according to little man)but being the mean mom that am known to be, I am sure that you will understand some of these offenses that I am known to commit…such as saying the word “No.” I hope that you are able to grant these long list of wishes anyways, as that would make this the best Christmas ever.
It’s gotten pretty cold here in Minnesota and else where around the globe and we have been hit with snow as of late. Do you think you could bring some winter coats and boots and warm hats and mittens to the homeless people?
Also, if you could give them a warm place to lay their heads tonight, that would be great.
To the people with hungry bellies or no food to feed their children today, could you please give them a hot meal and some food in their cupboards?
Too those without a job because they have been laid off or for other reasons, please provide a job for them.
To those that have lost their homes due to a fire or foreclosure or whatever reason, please provide them a place to call home.
To the orphan children please bring them a Mommy & Daddy to love them. But, in the mean time could you put someone in their path to properly care for and love them?
There are some Mom’s & Dad’s that are without their son’s or daughter’s, because they are off fighting in the wars. Could you please give them some peace and comfort and work it out for them to talk to their child?
To those in other countries, fighting a war, could you please wrap your arms around them? Could you please keep them safe or better yet, bring them home?
To the Mom’s & Dad’s that have lost a child, could you please bring them a truck load of comfort as they grieve and miss their child even more during the holidays? To those that have lost a parent, sibling or friend or anyone for that matter, please bring them comfort.
To the person sitting in prison, lonely and broken, could you please bring them a visitor? Could you bring a bucket of love and comfort to them? Especially for the one’s imprisoned for something they didn’t do. To their families, could you please provide for them and help them not feel so alone?
To those that are suffering from an illness that leaves them homebound, could you bring them the comfort of a loving visitor? To those suffering in pain bring them some relief?
To those that are lonely, sad or depressed, could you bring them some peace of mind. Could you bring them some hugs and a hope for a better future?
To those that are separated from loved ones for one reason or another, could you fill up their hearts and bring them comfort and fellowship?
To those that are separated from loved ones due to divorce, a bitter grudge or family feud could you bring them the ability to forgive, and let go of what is in the past and help them move towards healing and repairing the hurts?
To those that have no money for giving gifts to their children, please provide gifts for their children and even them. Please bring gifts to the children that don’t have.
To the persons having to work even though it’s the holidays could you bring them much joy and peace as they work? To those that are working in retail at this very moment that people are doing last minute shopping, could you please bring kind respectful people that act in the true spirit of Christmas to their check out’s?
To those traveling through snow, freezing rain or even perfect weather conditions, give them safe travels and for those with young children, put those children to sleep so that the parents can drive in peace.
I know this is a long list and quite honestly Santa, I could have added a lot more but I will stop with one last request.
As your flying here and there and everywhere tonight, could you please take a moment and plant a kiss on my daughters head in Idaho? And on my Grandson in Nebraska? And my son, my 2 daughters, my son-in-law and granddaughter in Florida? Could you please take a moment and sprinkle some Christmas magic and love from me on their great big beautiful hearts and homes?
Thank you Santa. I know this is a tall order to fill. I know you will do your very best! I believe. I believe. I believe!
Hugs & Love, Lori
PS And Santa if you could totally heal my beautiful friend, that I care for each day, that would make my Christmas the bestest ever!
PSS Little man just told me that I am not on the naughty list anymore so we should be good to go. Right?
PSSS One last thing…could you make the little’s behave perfect for their uncle while I go off to work today?
