All I want for Christmas is you ♡

♪ « I don’t want a lot for Christmas /There’s just one thing I need /I don’t care about the presents /Underneath the Christmas tree /I just want you for my own /More than you could ever know /Make my wish come true /All I want for Christmas is you » ♪

All I want for Christmas is you ♪

Every year, December always looks the same; people are rushing through the shops trying (and probably struggling) to find the perfect gift for their loved ones, whether it is the brand new doll for the youngest sister, the last iPhone for the geek of the family or the brand new jumper from the Jack Wills winter collection for the fashionista! And that’s lovely, it’s such a sweet attention to make gifts to people, but… I think Christmas holds a bit more than just material gifts, don’t you think?!

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! 

As far as I’m concerned, I am Janice Maeditere’s opinion, I think “Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.” So I simply would like my friends and family to know that I don’t want anything for Christmas, nothing material anyway… The only thing I really wish I could get for Christmas is to be reunited with my heart ♡ But it will unfortunately not be possible this year, I won’t be able to go back to England for a while this Christmas or even this New Year’s Eve.

I still wish though, nothing’s truly more powerful than a sincere and genuine wish! (that’s the only thing I have left anyway :p)… I still believe that somehow I will be able to find my shelter again this Christmas, I still believe I’ll get to see him, hear his soft, delicate & reassuring voice and listen to his always very kind words. I miss them so much, I miss his adorable words, his voice, his smile… So one way or another, I just wish, believe and pray for Santa to bring me the only one I need…

One often says ‘we do not remember days, we remember moments’; I remember every single moment I’ve spent with him and every single word we’ve shared, I remember everything and I would like to remember this Christmas as one of the most beautiful and brightest christmas I’ve ever lived…

Make its way across the sky
But I know if I close my eyes my wishes will come true
Like the one I’ve saved for you » ♪

That time of the year has always been a quite tough time in my family, it has always been a source of tensions and quarrels. I can’t really complain; I think my brother and I have always had beautiful Christmas gifts but… they are really not the most important. It’s quite true to say we’ve always had everything we wished for, everything but a loving home… And now, now that the ‘family’ is all split up, it might actually be worse… :/ 

So please, Santa, if you read this now… could you make my wish come true, could you bring me the one who can make me have the happiest Christmas I haven’t had for quite a long time? It’s horrible when your heart is somewhere your body is not…

« I don’t want to love him—this would be so much simpler if I didn’t. But I do. He’s funny, and passionate, and strong, and he believes in me more than I even believe in myself. When he looks at me, I feel like I could take on the whole world and come out standing tall. I like myself better when I’m with him, because of how he sees me. He makes me feel beautiful and powerful, like I’m the most important thing in the world, and I don’t know how to walk away from that. I don’t know how to walk away from him. » – Rachel Vincent

So please, dear Santa, this is nothing material, nothing expensive, nothing cheap even, it is no value of money… You can’t buy my happy Christmas, Santa, it is not something you’ll find in an umpteenth shop or at an umpteenth Christmas market, you won’t have to spend a single penny for my Christmas gift :) You might not be able to physically bring him to me, but new technologies can make miracles happen sometimes… ♥ J u s t  l e t  m e  h e a r  h i s  v o i c e ♥

♪ « All the lights are shining /So brightly everywhere /And the sound of children’s /Laughter fills the air /And everyone is singing /I hear those sleigh bells ringing /Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need » ♪

♥ All I want for Christmas is YOU ♥

    Such a poignant note to this post and it’s true, we all want to enjoy the festive season, (but it becomes all too apparent,) that real feelings are sometimes pushed under the rug. I hope you can be somewhat merry in the lead up to Christmas and at least take delight in decorations, festivities & twinkle lights!

      and thanks for your email! I’ve just read it; your words are very moving and mean so so much to me <3 !!! You completely understand everything that's in my heart, you've understood that my 'salvation' is more than important to me, that he has changed me and my life and the way I'm seeing things!
      Thank you for being you and for being such a nice and devoted reader <3

    Such beautiful and wise words Marie. I am in total agreeance. I cannot tolerate the superficial, commerical insanity that occurs, with everyone running around like maniacs buying presents that will most likely be discarded or forgotten about in a few years.

    This could not be further from the true spirit and meaning of Christmas. I boycott the commercial circus as much as possible.

    My wish for you is that Santa reconnects you with your shelter xo
