A few weekends ago a young lady of about nine hopped up onto Santa’s lap and when I asked her what she would like for Christmas, she replied, “I would like my family back together.”
Every year Santa and his many helpers get lots of requests for world peace, feeding the children and helping people in need, but this one hit Santa very deeply.
With all the things that a young lady of that age could ask for, to her this was the one and only thing that was important – important enough to be her only request to Santa.
People forget how difficult separation and divorce are on young children and this young lady spoke out loudly for all of them.
In all the anger and frustration that happens in these situations, remember the children. They are not pawns in an adult situation, they are the most important consideration and our future.
Remember to be kind to each other,
Love, your friend, Santa Claus
