The happy December is here, the holidays too. Santa is already walking around, getting everything ready.
What did you wish for as a child? Did Santa leave what you wished for under the Christmas tree?
Let me share a story with you:
Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Maja, who endlessly wanted a teddy bear. The cute one she often watched at the toy store. It was plush, filled with straw or sawdust, I don’t really know anymore. She sent her wish to Santa, who got it. A beautiful polar bear was prepared for her, but unfortunately it was forgotten on the shelf. It didn’t find its way to Maja. And every year, the little girl waited for the teddy bear to appear under the Christmas tree. But she didn’t meet him as a little girl, as a teenager, as a mother.
The teddy bear stayed on the Christmas shelf and was getting bigger and bigger, as is possible in the Christmas land. Its fur was getting more and more yellowish and it was getting sad because Santa never took it with him. But this year he dropped it off at my workshop, with a clear instruction that it’s for Maja.
Maja is a grandmother now. She ordered a snuggle bear for her granddaughter. When ordering, she confided in me that as a little girl all she wanted was a teddy bear, yet never got it. And who am I to overhear a tiny voice of a girl who still wants a teddy bear?
She came to pick up presents for her granddaughter on Monday. And I surprised her when I told her that Santa had left something for her. Maja hugged her teddy bear, it finally got to her. She was happy and had tears in her eyes. All the best, Maja, with a long-desired friend.
You see, sometimes it’s nice and easy to make little wishes come true, you just have to notice them.
I wish that this Christmas, such cute little wishes that fill your heart and soul with joy, happiness and laughter come true for you as well. If there are tears, let them be tears of happiness. All the best!
Wishing you peace, health and closeness of those you love.
