Holiday Wishes To One and All
last modified: Monday, November 27, 2006 (7:20:13 PM)
As we rapidly approach the gift giving season and the end of the year holidays, I am clearly reminded it is not the things in life that make life so worth living, instead as an adult my lifelong wish is for the precious intangibles such as: world peace, neverending love, and friendship. With these ideals in mind, I want to wish everyone a safe, healthy, and financially sound holiday with their loved ones.

Please remember to take a moment to reflect on how truly blessed we are and to pray for our troops to return safely as well as for those in need.

Lastly, I encourage everyone to watch this video and listen to the song "My Grown Up Chrismas List" and its poignant messages. I actually prefer the Amy Grant version, but I could not find it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ5_YTgVTm8

Cheers and thanks for the memories 2006!

What a lovely blog! It''s always a pleasure to read entries like this, with such a positive and uplifting message.

Thanks for taking the time to remind us of what''s most important. You definitely hit the nail on the head with your statements. I couldn''t help but giggle-snort at the "financially sound holiday" comment tho. Hehe, with cels it''s kinda hard! ;)

Thanks for sharing such a nice video, I think I''ve heard that song before. It''s a great message for us all. Happy holidays! ^_^

Hear hear! It is definitely the most wonderous time in the year, we all have so much to be grateful for! And for those of us who might not be quite "financially sound" as we would like to be... remember Rome was not built in a day. Have faith, create a realistic plan, stay focused on your goals in life and good things will happen.

I totally agree it is superhard to remain financially sound with cels or any hobby that we are passionate about, but if we don''t strive to meet the challenge for ourselves, IMO no one will. Today my friends is a new day and quite frankly the first day of the rest of your life!

As for the song, "My Grown Up Christmas List", both Amy Grant and Natalie Cole created their own versions which I wholeheartedly enjoy. I actually do not know who sings this version, but the message remains sweet all the same. Originally I thought it would be nice to share something romantic like "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah, but then I realized it is a good time to share something with a universal meaning. Also, staying in character Mahoro''s first wish is for world peace. ^_^
