Holiday Wish List

It is that time of year again, when people ask me what I want for the holidays. It's also a time to reflect on my hopes and intentions for the coming year.

I have a pretty awesome life full of good kids, great friends, a fulfilling job and a wonderful boyfriend. I already have most of what I need to be happy, and any shortfall lies within myself (healing, restoration of my confidence, learning to trust again). I certainly don't lack for any material goods.

Unfortunately, what I want isn't something you can buy from my Amazon wish list. It's also the one thing that my friends and loved ones don't seem to have enough of: time.

I have the means and opportunity to go out to clubs, see movies, or take day trips a couple of times a month. My work lets me travel to amazing places 3 or 4 times a year. I own a couple of timeshares, and I earn enough travel points that I could afford some leisure travel on weekends or in the summer. I have great opportunities in my life for fun and adventure. What I don't always have is someone to share those things with me.

So, if you are looking for the perfect gift for the girl who has everything (and if you have been to my house, you know that I have at least two of everything), _spend time with me_. Have fun with me for an evening or a weekend, share something that you enjoy with me, take a class with me, travel with me, go to the movies with me. Give me the gift of your time and companionship, even if you can't afford to contribute financially to whatever we do together.

That's what I want for Yule/Christmas this year. I'd also be happy to get a stocking full of hugs and kisses :-).
