Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I know I'm a little old for this but bear with me. I've been a very good girl this year, paid my taxes, followed basic laws, forgave my neighbors who put up their Yes on 8 signs and all the other basic things that constitute grown-up good girl-ness. I am even carrying a new little person inside me that will maybe one day leave you cookies, if my husband and I can agree on telling our kids that you "exist", and you can decide if she is naughty or nice or the usual combination of both at once, and that must be kinda fun for you.

Now I usually ask for a little something for myself that could brighten up my life. Like a new lip gloss or a massage or three weeks in Hawaii with my husband (and/or James McAvoy) but now it seems I have something more pressing.

Can you deliver something else? Like a negative test result for my dad who it seems might have lung cancer?

That'd be swell. There'd be lots of cookies for you and warm milk and OH GOD PLEASE.

Sincerely,

one Clueless But Hopeful Mama (and Daughter)

Oh no! I am so sorry your family is dealing with this. You are all in our thoughts and we will be hoping for the best. I barely have met your parents, but they seem like such lovely people. I hope everything turns out OK.

Oh wow, I hope your dad is ok. What a scary time for you and your family.

Also, RE: Santa, we waffled too, and in the end we did it and it's FUN. Did I already tell you this?? Can't remember....

Prayer and warm wishes for your dad.

This is...*gulp*...really touching. The humor followed by the real longing. Ack. I have something in my eye.

OH, NO! I will be thinking of you and yours. What a terrible thing. I hope it's not what you're thinking.

Saskia said...

Oh, sweet thing. I will get my mom's powerful prayer posse behind this one. In the meantime, deep cleansing breaths and good vibes.

OH no! Oh sweetie.

Wow, what a sucky time to deal with this. Not that any time is IDEAL or anything. Blech. I'm so sorry. Sending prayers!

wishing you allllll the best. hoping your dad is in the clear and that you can rest easy very very very soon.

as for santa, phoebe is a believer, but also a hater, "don't like him, too scary" so as usual phoebe's gotta throw in that monkey wrench. doubt she'll want him coming to our house this year, but i'm sure she'll come around to liking him again soon.
