My Christmas Wish

I had a very long Christmas list this year it started with world peace, while this is still on the very top of my list, I understand I am extremely unlikely to receive this blessing. So I have revised my list, to wish that those in war torn countries, have a safe Christmas day. I beg of the Universe to give us one day of peace, one day without terror, one day of rest, one day of compassion, one day of caring.


I guess in some ways it is naive of me to think this could actually happen, but what I can do, as one single person, is spend part of my Christmas day educating my children on how to have peace where we are. To teach them to forgive and to be tolerant. To teach them to love and be loved. To teach them how fortunate we are. To teach them that even one person can make a difference. To teach them to seek answers and to want to learn. To teach them to be generous of heart, to be kind and considerate to others and also themselves.

Most of all I’d like to teach each of our 5 kids to be grateful for what they have, for who they are, for the people they have in their lives, for the situations they face, for life.

That is my Christmas wish list for this year. What is on yours?

  5. I love your wish and I wish for the same. I also wish that each person living on this earth would understand they exist to do good things. That they are valuable and hold high worth. I think if everyone understood this concept, in a healthy way because if you go too far on the other extreme you can be arrogant, the world could be such a better place.
    The world needs more people like yourself Nicole. You are amazing at what you do and look at what you’ve accomplished this year! Next year is going to be a very blessed one for you and I’m excited that I get to tag along for the ride to see you grow and succeed. xx
