When I was younger, Christmas meant I'd get a couple gifts from my parents and a trip to my grandparents' house for the day.
I always wanted cool gifts, even though Mom tried to teach us that isn't what Christmas is about.
As I get older, I feel more the meaning of what the Christmas is supposed to be.
Same goes for all religious holidays in December.
It's about love.
I don't wish for things anymore.
Things are nice, but they are just things..
OK, maybe I learned that last year when Honeyman got me one gift and it was a cd that I already had.
I was fine.
I realized I don't care so much about the gifts anymore.
Though it still bugs him, because he just brought it up a couple days ago.
This week's Ten Things Tuesday is about the types of things I wish for.
1. I wish for my daughter to stay goofy.
If she's not goofy, she's not happy so I tell her to stay goofy.
2. I wish for the FDA to mandate GMO labeling.
If I want to eat pesticides, I'll go buy a bag of Round-up.
3. I wish for at least a few more years with my parents.
Even though my mom drives me insane. But, they are still my parents. They are getting old and tired though.
4. I wish for Honeyman to be able to enjoy his life more.
He works hard and gets down about things. It's nice to see him happy.
5. I wish I had some zucchini.
I wish my plant hadn't died. I could buy some, but it is just not the same.
6. I wish my cat allergy would go away. I love to snuggle with my kitty, but she makes me hurt.
I do it anyway.
7. I wish people would accept other people even when they don't agree.
Examples include: religion, abortion, same-sex relationships, political parties
8. I wish our family could find time to watch out Christmas movies BEFORE Christmas.
I can almost hear bobble head Ralphie screaming for me to take him out of the box.
9. I wish I could stay home on Christmas Eve.
I don't see that ever happening, but I always thought it would be so nice.
10. I wish someone would give me an idea what to fix for supper sometimes.
What wishes do you have?
