Ask Him…

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa,

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!

Love,

Michelle (8 Yrs. old)


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

Oh the joys of children…

Don’t get me wrong here, I love my girls to the moon and back.  However, I’ve come to the conclusion, that the reason most parents don’t warn their own children about having babies, is simply because they realize that if they do, the human population would eventually cease to exist.

It’s not so much about the infant or toddler years.  Heck, even the grammar school age is fairly simple.  But the teenage years and a little beyond that….. Yes, those are the years I should have been forewarned about!  Plus, parents don’t warn their children about having kids, because they have to be able to get even somehow!  Lol….

Anyway, my children are driving me insane right now, and if God doesn’t intervene soon, I may not make it through the end of this month!  I am dealing with a wedding this week.  Yes, my second oldest this time around.  And if my two oldest daughters can’t be civil with one another, I fear I may not survive!

Just a few more weeks…. I’m home free after December 31st!  Hope I last that long!  😉

 

Happy Saturday!

Good morning everyone,

Hope you’re all off to a good start today!  I just wanted to thank all of you who prayed for me and sent well wishes.  It really meant the world to me and helped me remain more positive through everything.  I still don’t have any results or know the outcome of my situation, but I do believe that everything happens for a reason.  I am trying to remain hopeful and it’s been much easier to do that because of all of you.  So thank you for that!  I feel so blessed to have this community of bloggers who I can really connect with.  You have no idea what you all mean to me.  Hope your weekend goes well!  Much love to all of you!  ~M  ❤  xo

Halfway there!

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately or commenting as much as I normally do.  I have been so busy this month with NaNoWriMo, that I really just haven’t had much time for anything else.  I made it to 25,000 words today and it feels really good to make it this far.

Thank you to a few of my friends for giving me encouragement along the way.  Especially Carl, Dustin, and D who have shown what true friendship is all about.  Thanks to you three, I think I will make it to the finish line.

It’s been much harder to concentrate on writing the last few days after hearing about France and all that they are dealing with at the moment.  My love and prayers go out to the families who have lost loved ones and I just hope and pray that there won’t be any more attacks.
