How about an end to the conflicts in the world. Also we found a long lost family member this year so just the chance to re-unite and catch up would be wonderful.Marion, I like the way you are thinking this morning.

I've asked my family to donate money to Living Water International instead of giving me gifts.

To see enough donations come in to local charities so that all kids in the area will have a little something under their tree.

I would just love to be able to catch my car payment up so I will continue to be able to work and provide food and shelter for myself and my daughter. A better economy would be the biggest blessing to me right now.

Marion - whirled peas. Could you be wishing for the English concoction known as mushy peas which goes just great with Cod and Chips? That could make a mess of your stocking. Or are you going to hang a stocking at all? I guess Dec. 25 is just another working day to you. We had a nice sermon in church yesterday about the tradition of giving on Dec. 25. Basically it was this: God gave His Son to mankind, His Son gave His life as payment for our sins and the Wise Men gave gifts of frankinscence, myrhh and gold. And that is enough of a tradition for me and my house.

I'm hoping for some mushy peas and an end to all world conflicts. "That men can live as brothers, on the bullfrog line."

If asking for the Whirled Peas, don't forget the Gouda Wheel and Two Men. “We don’t celebrate Christmas…it’s not about giving (gifts), it’s about God.” I don't celebrate God stuff either.

My kids to do well in school, to accept their limitations, and to work hard with their talents. for the hubby to quit smoking and for us to continue to provide for our family. Would like a clean house, health, happiness, and some good seats to a KU mens basketball game.
