what do I need?

21 Dec

My mother in law asked me in the beginning of the week what I wanted for Christmas this year. Being stupid humble as I am, I told her I didn’t really need anything. I lied, or at least, I semi-lied (if there is such a thing).

What I DO NEED is for my family to stay healthy and be safe. Is that too much to ask? Probably.

Apart from that, I don’t really need anything. I would like to have a few things, sure. Who wouldn’t? These things will not make me any richer though. They would give me pleasure but nothing compared to the completeness and fullness I feel when I have my family around me. So, there you have it. All I need for Christmas this year is my family and this is priceless.

Anyway, I already got the best present ever 😉
