My Grown Up Christmas Wishes

Hello Everyone! My Christmas list has changed quite a bit over the years. Although I am no longer a child (but still act like one from time to time), I can still dream. The following is the list of "gifts" I am asking Santa to bring YOU!

"I wish you Joy and Peace
And leisurely happy days
filled with love and shared with Family.

"The realization of how precious and fleeting
The gift of time really is.

"Not ribbons and bows, nor lights and trees
No worries about sales and the stresses of shopping
To find that "perfect" gift.

"Only Joy in the Holiday
And beautiful memories of time spent with those you love.

"For these are the "gifts" that will be remembered
For years to come.

"My wish for you is an abundance of wonderful new memories
To warm your hearts."

I wish you all of these things and so much more...


(now, before y'all go believing I am a talented person, this list actually came to me from a dear friend of mine whose husband is suffering from esophageal cancer. The words aren't mine, but the sentiment is so lovely, I had to share with all my friends!)


  • Blessings to you and yours!

    like that it easy to understand that you are a caring and loving person. It is interesting to see as we age, our 'wishlist' changes. We move away from the materialistic items to things that are much more meaningful and important.

    Several years ago, I had a wish, one that provided an avenue where I could vent some of my frustrations. I have always had the total support of my family, but I also felt at times I was burdening them. My wish came true in the form of
    'Spine-Health' Back then I really didnt know anything of what the site was about, its members, etc. Fast forward till now and I am still very grateful to Spine-Health. It has now been one of my objectives to help others and to make sure that others who log in to Spine-Health also find that support system that is so important.

    Jeaux, thank you for starting this thread
