Have you ever sat down and written a letter to Santa, or write your bucket list? How about resolutions?
Seven years ago I wrote a list to God. I needed some big blessings and I knew that I could wait for his timing. So I wrote my needs and wants on strips of paper then put them in a box and wrapped it beautifully. This is to be open in April of 2016. It is coming up soon. I know that I have been blessed through many huge challenges, but I don’t feel like I am where I would like to be in my life right now. So I can’t imagine those strips of paper coming to pass – or have some of them come to pass? I do have four months to go before I open it.
I want to share with you my Grown up Christmas List.
This was first on my list. A cottage of my own. With lots and lots of flowers.
In this house I would have this fireplace.
This would be the entry way. I love gray and white checks painted on old wood floors.
This would be my new farmhouse sofa set. I kinda looks like one that I am working on.
With a kitchen like this I would bake all day.
Are you still with me while I am designing my dream house? Okay let’s move on. . .
I’ve got to have this wonderful pink chippy hutch in my dinning room.
Here is a wonderful guest bedroom. Awe, the picture is just like mine.
Here is the guest bathroom. Are you loving my dream home yet?
This is my dreamy bedroom. Awe. . .
here is my bathroom.
and last but not least here is the patio, all screened in and so welcoming.
Well these are my make believe wishes, you know the one that you dream about and probably will never come true. But for now I take the sweet little rooms that I have and make them into my dream world.
There are so many more important wishes in my life that I would love to see come true, like . .
this one I have had to learn the hard way, it doesn’t come come all wrapped up in a neat little package, but comes from gifts from God, like through special friends that he brings into your life.
This happens one person at a time.
I know that I am not young anymore but I can still dream, and I know that it will come if it is right. Loving a special somebody is one of the greatest experience in the world to me, and I hope that I will get a second chance.
After experiencing this four times I am a fulfilled women. This is the greatest gift of all. Being a Mother.
As I look back on my life I have received many great gifts and if I never have a package tied all up with a bow sitting under my tree that’s okay I have received the greatest gifts in the world and the greatest and most cherished gift of all is knowing that I am a child of the Divine. This is my grown up Christmas list.
The Warmest Merry Christmas to All !
