I know it's funny to think of a twenty something mom writing a letter to Santa. But after the morning the bestie and I had with the oh so lovely people of this area I figured it was worth a shot.
I know my daughter and son have already asked for goodies this year but I have one teeny tiny request of my own. Oh yes, I've been very good…ok ok there were those couple of times were angry Ashley came out but I was totally justified! Anyways, as much as I would love to ask for Tiffany's and Kate Spade can you bring some kindness and joy with you this Christmas? I think the people around here lost theirs somewhere between home and work. And before they could find them it was trampled underneath the traffic. This is probably a harder request to fill then the Leappad or new Elmo, but we desperately need it! People are running their carts into others, shoving in line, driving like they shouldn't have a license, speeding through the parking lots, and looking disdainfully at my children for laughing too loud.
I know I can be grouchy but I try not to take that out on complete strangers. Everyone I've met in costco, wegmans, and the mall lately however, is the exact opposite. Sadly, with all the commercialism of Christmas, we wander around like Charlie Brown not knowing what Christmas is all about. This is the catalyst for all the anger. I believe if people were to experience the joy of Christmas they wouldn't be so hostile. Someone needs to shine a light into these people's lives. So, that's what I'm asking for this year, an awakening of souls to the true meaning of Christmas. Help me out Santa and I promise to do better next year!
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord […] Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. –Luke 2:10,11,14
