1: Gibson Les Paul Guitar (or Epiphone version)
2: Fender Telecaster Guitar (I only have 8 guitars, I want more!)
3: Some sort of cool 3G phone. Not necessarily the iPhone
4: A VERY nice set of cookware, not non-stick but something my wife can't destroy. She has actually burned a hard boiled egg but letting all of the water biol off. The smoke alarm is her timer, then the house fills with smoke, the meal is done. This is why when I go into the hospital, the entire family loses weight.
5: Really, the most important thing is that my kids have a great Christmas.

Great post Buzzard!
PS- the Crappie Pole has nothing to do with a new type of ostomy bag, does it?
I know it's for fishing, I'm just being me

What a great thread! I usually say I don't need anything, which is true, but this year I'd like the twins to start staying "Mama" (what is taking them so long?!?).

I'd also like to start sleeping through the night (the two year old wakes up more than the babies!).

I really like Adrian's wish of someone paying off the mortgage- someone sign me up for that one!

I have a few wishes for Christmas:

1 I wish for you all a year of not having to fight with your insurances companies for tests and such.

2 I wish I had enough money to make all your wishes and dreams come true.

3 A cure for cancer

Merry Christmas everyone, or what ever it is you celebrate!

Hugs,

Sue

While I was undergoing chemo, I used to read travel guides and magazines about taking a cruise. It seemed like such a luxury to spend time doing nothing but eating and drinking and looking at warm water. I still think that would be nice. The post about maid service sounds good too.

Barring the obvious like world peace or a cure for cancer, being totally selfish here is my list:

A clean PET scan on the 15th so I am allowed to take a week break. Then I need the airfare to be at low enough rates that I can use my credit card miles and get them, so I can go to my house in Mexico for 7=10 days.

A Wii Sports with Wii Fit so I can get fun exercise inside during our miserably cold winters. My awful face/neck/chest/throat neuropathy make walking in this snowy weather impossible for me. I love to exercise (mostly walk and bike), but I have a hard time getting motivated if it isn't a little fun and enjoyable. Doing situps or jumping jacks in my house just doesn't jazz me. I'd also enjoy playing the sports against my kids - give us more interaction (my parents have one and we had a lot of fun with it). But the budget is so tight this year - we can barely pay the bills with all my medical bills, my business dropping, and my husband's pay cut at work. So this is just a dream. We stll plan to buy gifts for the kids (including nieces and nephews), and our parents, but the budget is dropped. And we are not buying for each other.

When I was fighting RSD through a winter I'd get my spinal nerve blocks in MN and fly to Mexico where I could get out and walk in the heat. The cold here set my RSD off so badly it was very hard to get through the pain. Without those trips to the warmth I don't think I'd have ever reached remission. Besides that, it is my second home - it is very healing for my heart and soul. I miss my friends and extended family there a lot. I was supposed to be there the end of October and beginning of November, but had to cancel that trip.

So if my scan is clear and I can get to MX for New Year's Eve I wlil have my biggest wish of all right now!

The Wii fit is awesome, and the kids and I love it, if you get it, it will definitely get you in shape, it takes your numbers, and what age your body really is at, and helps improving it, I got it when we got our taxes back last year, along with a PS3 that my son wanted, but you will love it once you have it ;)

Hugsss!

This is fun to think about. On the trivial material side I would like iphones for our whole family. I would also love a spa day.... actually a spa week with yoga, surfing, manicures, massages and delicious healthy food.
But of course the only thing I truly want is for my family to be healthy. I want Dick to be cancer free and Katie to stop having seizures and for her to life to be filled with joy. I want Jacqueline to not have to worry about her dad and her sister. That's what I want, for my family to be filled with joy. :)
I wish for great health and all cancer to be gone for each and every one of you.

Aloha,
Kathleen

I would wish for everyone to recieve what they asked for!

I already got my gift, well most of it. I went home for Thanksgiving, and spent a wonderful 4 days with my family, as nutty as they are. I missed my dad so much. My yougest brother and I had a long heart to heart and straightened out alot of old feelings. We had a "burning of the table" ceremony and laid those feelings to rest. Yes, we really burned the table that we sat around as kids - mostly our other brother sent it flying. I went to my 30th reunion and remembered why I didn't like those people in school! Once a cheerleader always a cheerleader. For those that watch heros - let the cheerleader go!

My oldest son came home with us. Tonight Nick, Carl, Mandee, and I are decorating the tree together. I can't wait. The only one missing is my youngest, who unfortunatly is in a program in Florida. He gets released in February, and I believe he will be coming here also. For the first time in his life he made honor roll, even got an A in algebra. As sad as I am about where he is and the reasons for him being there, he is excelling in school (and I always knew he had it in him!).

I can't afford too much under the tree for them this year, especially after this trip, but I have what matters most to me.

I wish for everyone to be happy and at peace for this Holiday season, and to enjoy those that are important to you.

Love you guys - Sherrie

First, reading all of these brings tears to my eyes. I too wish I could grant all of your wishes. It is humbling to read this board, the things people wish for, the things people are grateful for, the kindness of people, it makes you realize how petty the things are we sometimes and often worry about. I wish health for all of you here! I hope there is a cure someday for this awful disease, I wish there were more answers as to the causes of the disease, I wish there was more help for everyone suffering from a major illness.
Now, if I won the lottery I would wish for:

A warm tropical vacation with all of you
An Endless supply of bones to keep my puppy busy
New clean super soft sheets for my whole family

Blessing to all of you here. You have all given me such hope and inspiration. Marie

To have my 20 year old home for Christmas and to have enough money to support to father so he never has to work another day in his life and spoil him rotten.

Hi Donna

Just wondering if you ever played Upwards? It's kinda like scrabble but you build the words up! I love it!

Well I can honestly say I dont want anything for myself, but I have always been like that. I get more pleasure giving. I would want what ever makes everyone here happy. I think this subject is great, I sat and read all the posts and I can just picture everyone smiling as they typed their posts, and that just warms my heart. For those few minutes it took, no one thought of the beast and the bad things that come with it, and I think for those few moments our hearts were filled with love, peace, and warmth. That in itself is a Christmas Wish come true. Merry Christmas to all...

God Bless
