I am just having a great many feelings this year about the under the tree scene. I just think I want to hone in on the children’s part of the celebration. Most of my life, other than a book or special boots in third grade, I have not really wanted for a great many things and have been pleasantly surprised at most of the packages I have received over the years. I need to be honest, I did beg out loud for my Kindle for my birthday – to a wide variety of folks! This year I would like to ask for a few specific items so I decided to post my Top Five Santa List…
Top Five Santa List for Patricia:
#1. I would like working solar panels, possibly from Nanosolar in San Jose (as referred to in Time Magazine November 10, 2008 edition – under best Inventions.) I would like to use all the sunny days that come my way to give back energy to the power grid and regroup some of the Enron Legal fees, and help all the fish, flora, and fauna in my neighborhood.
#2. I would be overjoyed if my youngest child could learn how to use money, understand money, and become accountable and responsible with money. I am wishing too with graduation in March from college a wonderful job with health insurance will open up for her and she will be able to pay her way. I do not wish for my other children to have to take over this task, I cannot afford a guardian or guardian services, and truly this appears to be an area where I am not succeeding.
#3. I have my fingers crossed and eyes heavenward, that I will have enough money for a plane ticket to the UK for my 60th birthday celebration and enough spending money to purchase food, water, and a few mementos of the journey. I guess that means that we will not need a new roof or have a flooded bedroom area, or medical expenses. I would truly just love a guarantee that everything will be a “green light” for a wonderful adventure and celebration.
#4. I would like someone to invent a home watermill to generate energy. We have hundreds of gallons of water running out our gutters every time it rains, which is a great deal of the time. Since seeing the Leonardo Di Vinci exhibit at the Tech museum in San Jose, CA, I have been pondering the idea that mankind’s dominate source of energy over time has been water. Rain and gutter water would be ideal sources of energy that already exist; we just need a way to capture it and make it useable at our homes. We have French drains, 2 sump pumps, sewer lines, street drains, and tons of water running off our roof which seems like it should be able to run at least my computer every day? Come on somebody…let’s give it a try and get something good going here.
#5. and dear Santa, I would like health – profoundly, irrationally, abundantly, unlimited health. No more threats to lose my insurance, no more pre-diabetes, no more high blood pressure, no more cancer, no more pneumonia, and enough energy to enjoy my abundance. Within this wish, I would like my writing, particularly on my blogs, to serve me well enough to pay all my medical debts and fund some retirement to remove that stressor from my whole being.
Some list? Huh?
I just bet you have a Santa list or a goal list too?
Marelisa at Abundance Blog has a wonderful positive way to look at goals and setting them for the new year and I recommend it for good reading and list making.
Oh yes, and could we include WORLD PEACE?
I sure would like it if you wrote down a few of your Santa wishes here – get them out loudly.
Thank you for sharing your comments and ideas.
