Dear Angels, God, Santa Claus, and a Genie in the Bottle,
I know you all know I have a milestone birthday approaching. I realized what I would love is three things–First- to be with both my siblings at the same time-just the three of us-maybe hiking at a park.
Since this has not ever happened -at least not in any clear memories I have of long ago and far away-and not since both our parents died, I realize this is a big ask. Yet, deep inside my heart and soul, I would be very grateful and likely bawl my eyes out-well, in all honesty, I am crying right now- just thinking about it as this possibility. My heart and body seem to know how healing this would be for all parts and pieces of me, including my grown-up Self even as I ignore the voice in my mind that keeps saying “You don’t deserve That! You aren’t worthy of That Gift! Why are you even typing this Dumb Letter!??!”
My second request would be that I could be with both of my adult children this Christmas 2022. The three of us haven’t been together for Christmas in seven years and I think it might be time for a reunion Christmas. I love Christmastime, the Love in the Air and all around us, the music, the belief that loving one another is possible, that many humans have an immense capacity to Love. Again, my heart, soul, and being would be incredibly happy and oh, so grateful for this experience. As a momma, who loves and cherishes, completely accepts her two children, I would know there is a God if we could be together, again, at Christmas. Well, I know there is a God-even if this didn’t happen-so if it did, then I would know you, Santa Claus, existed as I’ve long suspected, and a power as big as Love does flow and allow miracles to happen. 🥰
My third is for my beloved ones, colleagues, dear friends, friends at the lake, new friends I am getting to know, and strangers I have not yet met, and all my former lovers, ex-husbands, former significant intimate partners to know they are loved, seen, heard, and deeply valued always. Let them know I keep learning about love and gently remind them I’m a lifelong learner. My wiser self keeps having kind conversations with my constantly humbled self.
I know these requests seem very insignificant compared to World Peace, all women having a right to bodily autonomy, racial justice, the dismantling of command/control, oppression, greed, materialism, and building a world based on trust and inspiration, the creation of environmental harmony, saving the Monarch butterflies, dung beetles, and polar bears, the restoring of mental, emotional, and physical health to all human souls, and allowing The Ohio State Buckeyes to go to the Rose Bowl, again, but I hope you will consider these heartfelt requests from this one being who truly believes Love Always Finds a Way to Love.
I hope all of you are having an amazing day and I wish you a beautiful spring or autumn and ethereal bliss.
With love from my heart to all of yours,
