52 Photos Gallery 21 - My Wish That Came True

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.


  1. I have to admit when I pray I sometimes ask for things but I really try to just say thank you for what I have. I figure whoever is listening knows what I need already ;-) but then a vibrating bed couldn't hurt

  2. I am glad it is cooler so I can have the windows open, but the downside, for example, last night a couple of owls decided to have a party outside my bedroom window at 3 a.m. What a racket they made!

  3. Enjoy your new mattress set and wishing you continued healing and knee strength.
