This probably sounds sappy, but all I want for Christmas is to spend more time with my family. Two of my sons have grown up and moved out, now raising families of their own. My three grandchildren are growing like weeds. My third son is not far off from leaving the nest, soon to graduate from university. It is understandable that having everyone all together does not happen nearly as often as I would like.
I understand how busy they all are and how there never seems to be enough hours in a day to get everything done. I remember those hectic days when my boys were young. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday, although the calendar says otherwise.
As much as I am proud of my sons and their achievements, I miss their presence in my daily life. So, when they ask me what I would like for Christmas, I tell them…
All I Want for Christmas is You!
