I’ve been running a Christmas Wishes contest at my blog, and it’s been fascinating. The comments people have made have made me laugh, made me smile and, I’ll admit it, made me shed a tear or two. What started off as a funny little contest has ended up making me think very hard about what my own Christmas wishes.
So….what would I wish for? You know me, so you’ll know that the cure for diabetes is wish Numero Uno. No surprises there. But what else do I wish for?
I wish for my creativity to come back, without the fretting that sometimes goes with it.
I wish I could know what the answer is on the days when I just don’t know what the answer is. Or at least, know where to find it.
I wish world leaders would listen to what their people really want and to act on that, instead of what’s politically advantageous to themselves.
I wish that human beings would believe in themselves and their wonderful abilities more, instead of just believing what they’re told to believe.
I wish that no child, anywhere, ever has to go without, ever again.
I have funny wishes, too. Johnny Depp and chocolate seem to feature quite highly in those, in varying combinations. But I’d also wish for always being able to find the end of the Sellotape, always being able to put my hand on a pen before I forget ‘it,’ whatever ‘it’ may be, and for having an endless supply of beautiful underwear.
I’d love to hear your wishes, and if you come over to Home Thoughts From a Broad and tell me them, you might even win a prize!
