A Heart’s Desire-Merry Christmas

December 4, 2007

When I was very young, I was told, whenever people asked me where I lived, I would reply The North Pole.

Snow Lake, Northern Manitoba and Central Patricia, Northern Ontario, surely must have felt that way to a kid. We thought Santa Claus was “in the neighbourhood” and he could always get to us first. (That proved true after all). Our neighbourhood resembled the pictures and cards we saw of Santa’s village…lots of snowy trails, sparkling stars, and Christmas trees as far as the eye could see.

Believing in Santa Claus is a beautiful, mystical and fleeting time of life for some of us.

Believing in your Heart’s Desire can last a lifetime.

My first “Heart’s Desire” recollection was at the age of ten when I got the Brownie Camera I had asked for.

As a parent I tried to give my children their heart’s desire, but I can remember having failed because of trying to keep that element of surprise we associate with Christmas gifting. It took a long time for me to understand a heart’s desire.

I finally got it right! I ask. I ask my family to give me their wish list. I ask my Grand daughter to think it over carefully and then tell me her heart’s desire. I ask my husband. I even ask myself.
I wish you discover your HEART’S DESIRE, and I wish you


Little Patti

PS, My husband of…forever, recently bought a Gibson Les Paul guitar. We celebrate his 70th birthday remembering, it is never too late for your Heart’s Desire.
