My Christmas Wish For You

I cannot believe that tomorrow is Christmas! I am SO EXCITED!! But not because of any presents I will get…I’m excited because tomorrow I get to talk on Skype to my daughter Ashley who is away serving her 18 month mission for the LDS Church. We only get to talk to her once on Mother’s Day and once on Christmas. Other than that we only get to write an email once each week, so I cannot wait to be able to see my sweet daughter’s smiling face on Skype tomorrow. It will be the biggest Christmas gift I could ask for. Family is what truly matters. Presents will come and go but our families are forever, and I am so grateful for mine.

I am also grateful for all of you who allow me to share my life experiences with each of you daily. I am so appreciative that any of you would take time from your busy lives to spend a little of it with me and my thoughts. Thank you for that. You bless my life tremendously. So for my gift to each of you I want to leave you with this Christmas Wish:

My Christmas Wish For You

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you’ve been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too.

Merry Christmas to every single one of you.  Have a great holiday and I will talk with you again next week!

With Love and Gratitude,

~Amy

    I can relate heart to heart. My grandson is in the Marines and surprised us last night just as we were getting started with our family tradition. I’m as close to him as if he were my son, so that was very special. He’s being deployed soon so this Christmas is extra special.
