My Grown Up Christmas List

When I started writing this post it was going to be all about how my Darling Daughter who is almost four years old keeps adding to her Christmas list this baby doll and that baby doll, and how all of my loved ones keep complaining how hard I am to shop for. I mean really, most of us housewives probably are a little, okay a lot, hard to shop for. After all, if we want something we get it ourselves, and besides that my husband just can't convince himself to go into Victoria's Secret to buy for me! Shame on him! I did however send my sweet husband a text, at his request, with 13 items ranging from an iPhone 4, diamond solitaire earrings, to an Eclipse DVD. Christmas lists from childhood to adult are totally different from each other. I'd rather give than receive. I'd rather be surprised than give someone a list. The more I thought about this post, the more a certain song just kept popping into my head. This song says just how I feel right now. As you listen to the song*, read along with the lyrics. I wonder, just how many of us have the same grown up Christmas list.

My Grown Up Christmas List
by David Foster &
Linda Thompson-Jenner
 
Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you
With childhood fantasies

Well, I'm all grown up now
And still need help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up Christmas list

As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree

Well heaven only knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
A hurting human soul

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown up Christmas list

What is this illusion called the innocence of youth
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth
(there'd be)

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end, oh
This is my grown up Christmas list
This is my only life long wish
This is my grown up Christmas list
