As a child, I had huge requests and dreams of what I wanted for Christmas. And I would hope that I would get everything that I wanted. I didn’t always, but my parents did provide me with what they could.
As I’ve grown older, I don’t get all wrapped up, no pun intended, in the gift giving of Christmas. I usually purchase gifts for my godson only. And I don’t expect any gifts from others. I try to buy myself a little something each year, if I can.
This year, my wish list is very small. There are only a few items that I would like. But the things that I want most, money can’t buy.
Christmas Wish List
- Microsoft Surface Pro 3 with purple touch pad. I currently own the very first Surface RT. I purchased it the first day that they were available. And I love it! I have wanted the Surface Pro 3 for some months now. It has some updates and improvements that will be very beneficial to me in my tutoring business. Especially since I use my tablet during tutoring all the time. Not sure if I’ll be getting it anytime soon, but I’ll definitely be saving for one.

- Car Stereo. The city of San Antonio is enforcing a new law for the new year: no talking on cell phones while driving. So, I’m wanting to get a new car stereo that has Bluetooth capability, so that I can experience hands free talking while driving. I also want aux and USB inputs as well. This way I can enjoy more music while driving. It seems more foreseeable to obtain this in the near future.
- Stronger relationship with Christ. No, money cannot obtain this for me. This can only be obtained through fervent prayer and reading of the scriptures. The devil will try to interfere with this, but I will hold strong to God in order to achieve my goal.
- New and stronger friendships. I do not have many friends. Not true friends, anyway. But I’m open to meeting new people and seeing where those friendships can go. And I want to strengthen the few friendships that I currently have by increasing time spent together and engaging in more communication.
