Holiday Wishes Back to Blog

Update: Thank you for sharing your holiday wishes with me. I read through all of the comments–okay, I’ll confess I did that twice–because you made me cry.  There are just so many incredibly good people out in the world, and I was reminded of that fact as I read the comments. I know some of you are going through some very serious issues right now, and my prayers and good thoughts are going out to you.  Whether you made a big wish or a small one, I want that wish to come true.   I hope the holidays are good to you all–and that you all get exactly what you wished for.

I used the random generator to pick my winner (that’s how I’m picking all of the prizes unless the guest author has already picked), and the winner of the $50 gift card is Valerie M. Congratulations, Valerie!

This post is short and sweet–and it’s simply for wishes. What do you wish for this holiday season? Big or small, just share it. We should all take the time to make a wish, so please, make yours.

For the prize on this post? One random commenter will be selected to receive a $50 gift card—to help make her/his wish come true.

And I do hope that *all* of your holiday wishes come true. I hope the coming season brings magic to you!

I suspect they wish not to be eaten...what are you wishing for?

    I wish for a real job – so, rather a downer there. But also for a good year in 2013, where there aren’t tragedies left and right. It seems like there have been so many things people have been facing. My family and everyone else’s could use a break. No emergency surgeries, no cancer discoveries, no natural disasters. Wouldn’t that be lovely? Just a year of “time out” from all that.

    My wish is about ending an 8 year nightmare. I have plotted and planned to escape an abusive husband for almost a year and as soon as I get through the holidays the kids and I are finally leaving. I have been through more horror than most can imagine….broken bones bruises andabove all a broken spirit. I uses to ask why women stayed before I was in this situation, but being here now puts it in a new light. I lost myself for so long that I almost never found my way out. But my kids give me hope. Hope for a better life, and one without the verbal physical and mental abuse. So with the powers that be on my side I will never have to go through it or have my kids go through this ever again.

    Honestly, I am wishing for bathroom towels, NO hospital or major medical bills in 2013, a permanent job back in my field, and amazon gift cards are always great! Simple right??? I’m staying optimistic!

    Thanks so much!

    My holiday wish is to spend it with great friends and loving family.

    I wish for a new job for my husband. He’s tried his own business and it’s been a really tough couple of years. He’s not the entrepreneurial type, but finding anything in his field is really tough right now.

    I wish for a happy day spent with my family.

  14. Cindy B. says:

    I just want for everything to turn out right. Lame, but this year, we are alone for Christmas and I am really not looking forward to it this year. Money is more than tight so it would be nice if all could at least get together. Not gonna happen.

  15. Michelle Bledsoe says:

    Happy Holidays Ms. Cynthia,
    I wish for one more Christmas with my deceased relatives. Just one more hug! I know it’s impossible, but wishes are also prayers that people in Heaven hear. <3 Leann
