I Spoke to my mother right after Thanksgiving, the time when members of my family usually told one another what they "wanted for Christmas."
My mother asked me, "What do you want for Christmas?" and I couldn't answer her. I told her I'd have to get back to her. I had been spending much time in spiritual study, and it seemed unnatural for me to want anything material. The more I thought about it, the more I knew that I didn't want any thing from her for Christmas. What I really wanted, what my heart yearned and ached for, was for all of the conflict in the family to be healed and for my husband and me to be accepted and loved by all our relatives.
