What's on your Christmas List

It seems that as we get older, we have less "wants" on our Christmas lives. The cynic in me wants to believe that it is because we can go out and buy whatever it might be that we want. But, the believer in me thinks that I have come to the point where I would rather give than receive.

Which is true? Or, is it really somewhere in the middle.

Can you remember when you were a child seeing that one item that you poured all of your hopes and dreams into, hoping that it would arrive on Christmas morn?

This song takes me way back, and remember wanting the same thing. Enjoy, and, uh, what's on your Christmas list?

Past couple of years, I've wanted a few things that are just too expensive, that I know I "don't really need" - and I'm okay with that. Since then, I've actually gotten a couple of them as presents. But in reality, I'd rather give I think - or at least, I don't want to put anyone else out because of what might be my selfishness.

Got the iPhone, got a cool DSLR camera, still looking for a Kindle - but in time, maybe maybe not.

I would like a house in Columbia for Christmas. I'd like to sell this one and get settled into the new job. In terms of things, Chuck, I too think priorities change as you get older. "Things" are fading in importance and I'm becoming a bit more... sentimental. Don't wrestle with it- God improves you daily.
