Hi Santa

Hi Santa

Hi Santa,

Nice to see you again.

Have you been quarantined?

Oh you are always quarantined? For 11 months?

Well I’m glad you decided to show up this crazy year.

Have I been a good girl?

Well, that’s debatable. What do I want for Christmas you say?

I thought you’d never ask.

I want to wake up with anticipation in my loins.

I want to be excited about something again.

I don’t want to dread turning on the news. Or getting on social media. All those motivating quotes I usually see–only turn to arguing in the comments.

I had someone block me today because of my political beliefs. Even though we had a connection in the unfortunate club of moms of addicts; our love for recovery didn’t matter in the face of hate for a political party.

I don’t want that anymore Santa 🎅

Peace on earth is pretty cliche’ to say but we need it desperately right now.

Oh and while you’re sprinkling that pixie peace dust all over -could you just go ahead and take every craving for drugs and alcohol out of every cell in my sons body? And every other suffering addict right now too. That’s what I want.

Should I do what Burt Reynolds did in the 1978 movie The ENd?

“If only you’ll grant me this one wish…….”

But really, let’s do this.

I’m glad we had this talk Santa.

Safe travels!
