Sayre is at it again, hosting for the last time in the month of September (awesome idea, by the way!) and she wants to know what our 3 wishes would be if we had a genie to grant them. Be sure to go and check out everyone else’s wishes!
This requires more brain power than I have after waking up at 4am with my husband, it truly does. Things I ususally selfishly wish for (like losing 5 pounds), tend to land me in the hospital with a bum appendix or a flu that lasts the whole Christmas holiday. Now anytime I wish anything selfishly (as in pray), I always pray that it happen with God’s will and if it won’t harm anyone else. So far, the weight isn’t coming off, ha!
If wishes were horses, I’d have a full stable, including peace on earth, a potty trained toddler, a million dollars, and so on. Right now though, I’m just going to blog about a few things that come to my mind, which may not be the end-all wishes (like peace on earth), but are frivolous, require a tesseract, or are heartfelt 1, 2, 3.
Wish #1 – I wish that more of my friends cloth diapered their kids. Mostly, because even though there are plenty of circles that it’s the norm in, around here people still think it’s a tad freaky. Also that I had a friend within say a 20 minute driving distance. Sigh. (I did say frivolous).
Wish #2 – I wish that certain things took no time at all, like showering, or baking a cake, or cleaning, and that certain things lasted longer without turning sour (like reading a story or playing outside with my ALMOST 2 year old!) — something like a diaper change or you know, cooking dinner or something seems to always get in the way. I guess what I’m wishing for here is more play time.
Wish #3 – I wish that my husband treated me every day like he did when I was pregnant. No matter how hard I’ve tried to make him realize that I operate off of feelings just as much as I do reason, he never got that as well as he did when I was pregnant. What’s wrong with just saying ‘wow, I didn’t know you felt that strongly about it, but I’m sorry xyz happened and we can figure it out together’ — and a simple hug? Ignoring me or yelling at me doesn’t help. He understood this when I was pregnant. Why not now?
There you have it. 3 wishes.
