Today I'm excited for my second post of the WinterHaven Sleigh Tour hosted by WinterHaven Books! This week, I'm writing Santa a letter for my book wish list that I hope to receive this season. To see who else has written to Santa, go to WinterHaven Sleigh Tour for a list of participating blogs.
Yes, I am totally lame for putting a border around my letter to Santa, but I don't care! I think it's perty!
There are other things that I wish for that I'm not sure you can give, Santa... I guess this is cards on the table time (as Vane from Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger would say). Here's what I want for Christmas, besides books and clothes and movies:
~I want my family to be together. I only see them once a year and not everyone's going to be there this year. I get it that people grow up and find other things to do on the holidays, but it's the time to get together! I know it's not going to happen, but I wish more of my family was getting together this year.
~I want it to snow on Christmas Eve. I'll be going to a place where it's cold and has the chance to snow, and I'm begging for you to let that happen. Being in California, I have to drive to the mountains for snow, but I want it to come to me!
~My grandma gave me this bookmark when I wrote a letter to my alcoholic uncle (AKA her son) about how he was treating her, and I need help accomplishing what it said on it: grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
~Please let the Detroit Lions win their game on December 30th. It's probably not going to happen, but I'm going to the game and since I couldn't go to the Winter Classic for the Red Wings and the Tigers got swept in the World Series, I want to see one of my Detroit teams win!
That's all of the serious stuff Santa. I feel like I'm Kevin from Home Alone, just asking for his family for Christmas, but it's true. There's a gaping hole in my heart when they're not there on Christmas, especially since my grandmother died earlier this year. It won't be the same without her. But I know that I'm lucky to have family that loves me, and even when they're not there, I know they care about me.
What does your guys' winter wishlist look like? Let me know in the comments!
