What's Your Christmas Wish?

By Paige Brady, December 25, 2010  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Paige Brady
Merry Christmas! When my daughter was younger, we watched an animated Christmas movie called Annabelle’s Wish where a calf on a farm wishes to become a reindeer and fly with Santa. She also befriends the farmer’s grandson who suffers from muteness. Together, they learn about friendship and that with faith and a willingness to overcome great odds, anybody can achieve their dreams. I remember the film fondly but my daughter, now almost 13, won’t watch it with me this year. Spoiler alert: it takes many years, but eventually Annabelle’s wish comes true. While it may sound a bit sappy, personally I wish for peaceful coexistence in our world. I learned from Annabelle that it can take years for wishes to come true, and life can be rich and meaningful in the meantime. What Christmas wish do you have?

Your wish for a peacefull coexistance will not be falling on deaf ears my friend. I feel that the time is right that millions and millions and millions of wishes will be coming into alignment in the true spirit of harmony with our planet and for world peace. I haven't seen Annabelle's Wish but I'm sure your daughter will watch it with you (again) soon... IF you wish hard enough!

My Christmas wish came true with the help of Whole Foods. My table groaned with the delicious prepared foods that Were prepared at WF-Lincoln Park. The only missing ingredient was the Chocolate Log. WF handled the recall of the product and the free replacement of a French Silk pie was delicious. My family would never have noticed, but I have spoiled them by making my own Yule Log for years! Do you know how good you are and how on top of incidents you can be. The recall of the Yule Logs came late the night of 12/23. You had an alternate for me by ten in the morning.

My son LOVED this video when he was young! What memories you are bringing back to me. But now at 17...not a chance he'll watch it with anyone... Thanks for the memory!
