Carrie Robinson's wish to Santa this Christmas

Christmas is right around the corner. The final push is upon us and so is the push for Christmas wishes and letters to Santa. With letters to Santa pouring in, I wanted to share another letter to Santa from Carrie Robinson. Who said Christmas wishes were only for children?


Dear Santa,

What I would like for Christmas this year is to be able to take my three oldest children on a trip to Disney World. My older kids are 21, 20, and 17.

It may sound really odd to ask such a request; however, time has flown by so fast. I had promised my kids a trip to Disney World so long time ago but have been unable to fulfill that promise.

We have always struggled financially, so big family trips were never something we could afford. My kids went through a lot of sadness when they were younger. They lost their baby brother when they were very young; something no child should ever have to bear. They faced many struggles in life and are deserving of something grand!

Each one of my children are amazingly strong and brave.

So Santa, I would love to be able to whisk them away to the sunny, magical kingdom of Disney World, where the stresses of life could be replaced with their toes in the sand.

My daughter, MaCayla and I would go to Cinderella's castle. We have always shared a love for fairy tales and princesses. We could wear glass slippers and twirl with princesses. She deserves all her heart’s desires.

My son, Christian and my daughter, Macy would be enthralled with Epcot. They are my history buffs. They would take it all in and never take anything for granted.

Fine dining would surely be in order- pizza with lots of cheese would be our choice.

We would ride the tea cups, Dumbo, and anything else they wanted, no matter how big or how small.

I would purchase us all Mickey Mouse ears. My girls would definitely play along; but my son would look at me like I was out of my mind.

The park would close and we would retire to our hotel, just to wake up and do it all over again the next day.

Santa, this trip would be a way to have my babies back, if only for a few days. We could forget about the troubles in life and freeze time temporarily.

In the end Santa, I just want time.

Lastly, I want to fulfill my promise to three unselfish children, who have given me so much.

They are the reason I live.

Thank you,

Carrie Robinson
