Each year my husband, children, and now my grandchildren, ask me what I want for Christmas. And each year it becomes more difficult to come up with an answer. I really have to work at creating a list of options for everyone, because I’m not one of those people who has a big ongoing wish list. Or at least not one for myself. That’s not because I’m such a selfless person. It’s just that I feel like I already have so much. After a childhood of poverty I think I have achieved a good life. I have a modest income and a comfortable house. I have clothes to wear and plenty of food to eat. If I want to buy a book or a CD or pair of earrings, I don’t have to save my pennies for a month. If I want something big, like a new computer, I know I can eventually have it with a little strategic planning and saving. What more could a person want? Besides, if you add the blessings of a good marriage, family, friends, etc. that I listed for Thanksgiving, it seems pretty greedy to want more. I know we are supposed to want more, and want bigger, and want better. But I guess I’m a rebel. I’m pretty content with what I have and with who I am. So if I’m on your Christmas list…I don’t personally need much. But if you’re a big spender, I’d like world peace and a new playground for our community park.
