Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

I have tried to be a good girl this year. Sometimes, at this age, the rules can be somewhat hazy; doing right by one can be seen as wrong by others. But, I have tried my best. And, really, isn’t that all anyone can ask of me? Perhaps doing my best is more important than being good or bad, right or wrong?

Anyway, I have given much thought to what I would like to ask you for Christmas and nothing really came to mind. I already have so much. I have a loving and caring husband, a great home (if a few elves could come by during the off-season to do some painting, that’d be awesome), and wonderful friends, blog readers and supporters, for which I am thankful and grateful. What else do I need?

Although, there is one thing I really would like; something that I haven’t seen in any store or on any website despite all of the amazing advances in technology. But, I am certain that your clever, creative elves can build one: a Left Thumb 2.0 that types 50-60 words per minutes with the bonus feature of an endless supply of inspiring, motivating and insightful words. This way I can continue doing what I do, more effectively, for another year.

I would also like to ask that every boy and girl, young and old, around the world, receive the one gift they truly need on Christmas morning.

Merry Christmas to you and yours! And all of the best in 2008!

With much love,

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

If anyone deserves to get what they want (as well as what they need), you do! I wish you and Darrell a very merry Christmas, full of all the joy of the season. And I wish you a happy, healthy, successful and fulfilling new year!

I’m glad life contrived to make our paths cross – and I look forward to continuing and deepening our friendship in the year to come!

I have the feeling one of these days you’ll see a Left Thumb 2.0.

When you do, tell me. I can use one, too. 🙂

You and Darrell have a blessed Christmas.

Maybe they’ll come out with Right Thumb 2.0 so you can be ambidextrous and do 100-120 wpm! Of course, then we might find out what “too much of a good thing” really means!

Wishing you and Darrell the merriest of Christmases and the most blessed 2008!
