You have both asked me what I would like for Christmas. The following is the list. It is long and would require years to fulfill but it can’t be bought with money, It will require a special blessing to achieve.
I would like some magical, miracle to bring our family closer together that way we once were but may never be again.
I would like love, affection and understanding from the two who ae dearest to me in the entire world.
I would like to know that when you have to make a sacrifice for me you could do so without being so obviously upset, especially when it is something beyond my control.
I would like you to think of others feelings. Even though you both have natures that let you be very rude at times, everyone doesn’t understand those actions. I for one.
I would like all the above, and finally, I would like to clear my mind of all the hurts, the aches, the rejections, the criticisms and to have the old feeling. To know that all is well and that nothing has changed, but so far, I can’t. Because I know myself best, my heart seems to be broken, and try as I do, I can’t seem to mend it this time.
No, what I want money can’t buy. I don’t even know that our old way of life can ever be recovered. I’m really trying but it isn’t working.
Love, Mom & Gayle.
