This year Mumbles and I had a very happy Christmas weekend spent with family eating, chatting, laughing, playing, and cuddling with our pup. Every year we are overwhelmed by the generosity and thoughtfulness of our friends and family, and this year was no different. As we put away the beautiful gifts we’ve received, I spent time thinking about all the many blessings in our life, and thinking of the love and quality time together we experienced over the weekend, I was reminded (as the saying goes) that the best things in life aren’t things. With that in mind, I’ve put together a wish list of what I’d like for 2012:
A house well worn from the traffic of friends and family.
A rug dotted with the crumbs of appetizers and specks of wine unnoticeably spilled during laughing fits.
A worn down remote control from too many nights snuggled on the couch watching tv.
A carpet imprinted with the shape of a small dog curled up by the side of the bed.
A few more freckles from time spent out on the water in Lake Havasu.
More miles on my car from frequent visits to Mom & Dad’s house.
What’s on your wish list for the New Year?
