This "Meme" stuff is new to me, so bear with me! Don Rogers called me out on this one and I will try to make him proud.
The topic: One item I would like for Christmas.
Don did the best thing in his blog by turning his item into a beautiful sentiment of gratefulness for his grandparents. That's inspiring. I actually took his lead and wrote a very poignant, meaningful blog about how life is about more than "things"...yada, yada, yada. But before I could post it I realized, I'm not being entirely truthful. What I really want for Christmas is a winning lotto ticket! But it's not for completely selfish reasons...here's why:
Every person I know would get a fantastic holiday gift, my family would no longer have mortgages to worry about, my daughter would be set for college (and so would her children!), several charities would have the best Christmas ever, my church would be able to pay off their recent renovation bill, not one Angel Tree would have one single angel left to buy for, the Salvation Army would need bigger pots to hold more money, Toys for Tots would need bigger bins for more toys, the homeless shelters would have more food and clothes to offer those in need, animal shelters would be able to house more abandoned pets, my husband and I would be able to take that trip to Aruba that we've been talking about for years (OK, that one is a little selfish) and I would have the wardrobe I have always dreamed of (OK, that one is REALLY selfish)!
But all in all, that would be a FANTASTIC Christmas for A LOT of people all from buying a $1 little piece of paper ;-) So that is what I would like for Christmas if anyone wants to get it for me!
