I was busy writing in my office tonight, when my little Auti charged through the door and announced that she had a huge surprise for me. She proceeded to drag me out of my office, through the living room, and then stopped me right in front of my bedroom door. I was told to shut my eyes, and was then led into my bedroom where our family computer resides. I was finally told to open my eyes and have a peek. This is what was on the computer screen, written just for me…
Dear mommy I love you and I want to say you’re the best I love you and you love me every day is the best with you and I think you think the same thing I hope you’re doing well so I love you hopefully you enjoyed reading this as I loved writing this have a wonderful night from: autumn ;-D
This was just the sweetest note I could ever receive! I think perhaps we need to work on her punctuation a bit, but there was no way I was going to point that out when her big blue eyes were staring up at me, looking for approval. She’s currently in my bedroom again, writing poetry and yelling for me to come and take a look. So I mustn’t keep her waiting! Sounds like it’s a Christmas poem this time! Lol… 😉
Everyone is starting to tell me that you aren’t really real. But Santa, I want you to know that I still believe in you. Don’t get me wrong, I know that the Santa at the mall isn’t really you, but actually just one of your many helpers. Yet I know you really must exist, because my mom told me that you’re best friends with God, and I know she wouldn’t lie. God seems really far away, and I’m not quite sure he actually hears me sometimes. So Santa, could you please give him a message for me? This Christmas, all I want is for all the sick people in the world to be healed and for everyone to be happy. Even if it’s just for one day. So could you please ask him for me? I wrote him a letter last year, and I don’t think he got it, as it is still on my window sill. I know it’s a lot to ask, but it’s really all I want. Thanks Santa, you’re the best!

I was recently challenged to write a letter to Santa, after I challenged my friend Paul to do the same thing. You can read his letter here. The letter above was based on a memory I have, of writing a letter to God when I was a little girl. I wish I still had that letter, it would be so much fun to read now. Anyway, hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season, and I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! And don’t forget the true reason why we celebrate. Love you guys! ~M xoxo
