My dearest Jolly Man by Donna Powell

My dearest Jolly Man….

Can I just say first, I still believe? I know what I’ve been told growing up. But I still believe. Only I believe a little different. I think you are a combination of many different people. And that is why I come to you today. I have a rather hefty Christmas wish list. I don’t know if you will be able to handle it all as one person, but I think with all your different parts…well, it just might be easy.

* For the lovely Brandee…Can you put in a good word or some of your touch and help with Mr. Dave? He doesn’t need the C word. And well, Ms. Brandee could use the help. Oh and could you throw in some rocking glitter glue in a bright sunshiny yellow for her?!

* For Mom and Pappy—I realize we need repairs as we get older. But I think they’ve had enough repairs for everyone on that side of the family. How about a great big box of good health, love and maybe a vacation or two? You know just them…

* For Uncle Larry and Aunt Evelyn…Wow—this one is special! Can you send a little extra help their way? Maybe a doctor or two who can pinpoint and help out?

* For Kim, I want to ask a special favor or two…Ang going to FL….can you help out with that? Maybe send a little extra something for Kim this season?

* For Shelia….Just some peace. She’s been through so much with Peanut’s very unexpected death, her daddy’s brain C word, and the birth of little Tanner. She’s got a lot on her plate and some peace and rest would be great. Maybe someone to help shoulder and ease her hurt. Give her some strength.

Now, as for me… I am awesome. I’m going to ask that my life keeps getting better as it has been over the past couple of years. I have a great job, a roof over my head that is comfy and cozy , a great mode of transportation, money to pay bills and do a few extras, great friends and family in my life. My health is getting better and my purpose is becoming clearer as the days go by. I have a wonderful man who is so good to me and the addition of little Rocky to the group is just the right thing. So, I think I am pretty good. But I think I will be better of my above requests could be fulfilled. You see, those 5 things I asked for…

Well, Santa, they hurt my heart. I can’t imagine the amount of hurt that they are putting on the persons in question. So I want nothing this year but better lives for friends and family. And world peace. And the ability to meet Bono one day. But I can ask for those other things next year. Right?! LOL.

For now, I’m going to set out a plate of cookies and some milk on Christmas Eve for you. If you can’t help me, can you put in a word with a few other people? Just a word. Or two.

Because my dear Santa, I still believe.



DonnapowellDonna’s Twitter bio describes her as: “Southern and loud! She loves her Crimson Tide, Marvel Comics, Thai food, Martinis, old movies and books, LOTS of books”.  Her journey towards empowerment & wellness began a couple of years ago when she stepped off a curb and broke her left ankle, both bones. She became aware, then and there:  her body was telling her something had to change!


Since then, Donna has listened to her true spirit.  When she’s not fabricating gorgeous quilts, spending time with good friends, or writing on her blog, Donna takes the time to make herself a hot cuppa tea and truly listen to her body and its needs.
