I WISH.....

Aug0508_0025ew

...There were more hours in the day, between 8pm and 12am, in particular.

...The Internet I pay an arm and a leg for would actually work consistently, dependably, and quickly.

...I could commit to myself to slow down, and pick up some old beloved hobbies.

...I could quit procrastinating about the housework.

...I wasn't a bit of a pack rat.

...There was an easy solution to the troubles that are rockin' our Country.

...I could find the courage to start taking all the photos friends or friends would like me to take.

...for some sunny days this coming Spring Break Week.

...I could press pause on my Sugar Bear, and keep her just as she is, RIGHT NOW, for a little while longer.

...I could continue to pretend that all children are cherished by those in charge of their care.



...for health and happiness to abound.

...that those suffering dissatisfaction, could find peace and contentment with where they are in life.

“We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.” ~Earl Nightingale

Well then, I best get to work, for some of these wishes certainly deserve my service.  While this post evolved it's meaning for me changed.  It began as a bit of a "whine" about my Internet, my messy house, my wanting to get more done...and yet....in the end, I found myself realizing, if I'm gonna be wishing, it really ought to be about the BIG stuff.  And if I'm gonna be wishing....I better be willing to try to make it happen.

The photos were quite a contrast from being to end. (I love the way you messed around with the last one....I would love to do that, but I am not willing to give up knitting and sewing to spend the time). My interent stinks, too. And if the boys get on I bog down to nothing. The days that I whine about what I don't have (like today about a pantry) I feel like crap for not being thankful for what I do have. My wish...I wish I wasn't battling teenagers and two-year olds at the same time. It's about the same mentality, but a lot of work!

I love all these wishes and I really believe in the BIG ones. Keep on wishing--I truly believe thoughts become things.
This was a fantastic post. Now, can we wish for more time between 5am and 10am too? I have more motivation in the wee hours of morning!
