My Christmas Wish List

I want snow.
Fat,  fluffy,  flakes of snow.
Glinting crystalline intricacies that fall softly, silently.
I want the silence.
The muffled, whispered stillness.

I want a wood stove.
A fired, heat-throwing wood stove.
A jolly, warm-you-to-the bone wood stove puffing tendrils of sweet-scented smoke.
I want the warmth.
The contented, comforting warmth.

I want my blanket.
My soft, knitted, woolen blanket.
My toe-warming, draft-fighting, perfect-for-snuggling-under blanket.
I want to snuggle.
The heart-healing joy of physical closeness.

I want my family.
Husband, son and daughter.
I want to hear the laughter and banter and sighs of contentment.
I want love.
The happy familiar love of family.

Is it too much to ask?


  1. It's what we all want, isn't it? To be happy, deeply, richly, abundantly, overflowingly happy. That is true wealth indeed.

    No, not at all. This isn't too much to ask for, and I hope you get every single one of them.

  5. I like your list. I'm afraid I wouldn't get everything on my list (and I promise it's realistic -- no wishes the genie in aladdin couldn't grant)
