I can’t remember the last time I wrote to you. I vaguely remember writing a few letters when I younger asking for the usual kid things like toys, but this year I’m not wishing for anything like that.
As you know, this year I’ve been alright… mostly. 2017 has been so up and down, but I’m happy to report that it has mostly had its ups. I feel a lot smarter and wiser, and that I can achieve anything that I put my heart to. A lot of progress has been made this year in terms of finding myself and putting the work into making my dreams come true. I know I have a long way to go, but what’re a few bumps along the way?
This year has sadly seen so much violence and terror, and it makes my heart sad — we, as humans, should be looking after our planet and the people on it, but yet all I see everyday is fighting and war and hate. I’m not asking for much this year. All I ask for is peace this Christmas season and to keep everyone safe, warm and happy. That’s not too much to ask, is it?
Despite all this, there are still the little lights in the dark that make me know that everything is not so bad. I’m not sure what else to ask you for Santa, but I know that I am thankful for this year. There has been so much love, many laughs and discovering new things.
Hope you get a break this year, Santa – I know you and your elves are working super hard this year because the children of the world deserve all the happiness you can give. I’ll be sure to leave you some cookies and milk and carrots for your reindeer. ?
