One of my favorite songs is Garth Brooks when he says he thanks god for unanswered prayers. Often I find the things I wanted so much, really didn't make me all that happy in the long run. Choose your wishes carefully, I guess. Look at what you are wishing for and know try to know if that is really what you want.
But that is hard, I know. There have been times when I thought I knew myself enough to really want that. How can we really know. And what is a life like that has no wishes to look for? I might not want that either.
Right now, my wishes are small. And practical. Like I wish Frank will get home safely from Mississippi. And that my new bed will be delivered soon. I really wish that one!! Last week I wished that the mattresses be delivered, and I got those. Now I want the vibrating bed to put them on to come. Always wanting more.
Not long ago I wished that I could walk without my knee hurting. After the surgery in July I am almost getting that wish to come true. Not quite yet, but I am working on it!
That brings up a pet peeve of mine. I hear people often say they prayed for their team to win or for something they should be working toward doing. I have never put stock in praying for something rather than working for it. You make your life what it is. Only you.
So here is my current immediate wish. I want to get the vibrating bed base and I wish it would cool off so when I open the windows to dissipate the off gassing of my new mattresses I could be cooler and my head wouldn't hurt so.
