Once in a Blue August Moon: Day 10 -- The Wish

The prompt: If you had one wish – guaranteed to be fulfilled by the end of 2013 – what would it be?

This is not an easy prompt. Most of the August Moon posts I browsed through also had difficulty with it.

I wish for....

Nope. That one is for somebody else. So's that one. And that one -- well, it isn't really one that could be fulfilled by the end of the year. That one is too vague. World peace? Huh uh, Miss America. Try again.

I have so many blessings already in my life that it is hard to think what to add, at least anything very specific. And I'm grateful that I am grateful!

I want things for my children ... not things, really, but financial and emotional and mental and relationship security and stability, and most of all for them to experience the kind of love Tony and I have -- that is the rock solid foundation for me, really.

But those kinds of wishes are not mine to make, not for them nor for anyone else. What do I want that is not already in my life?

I want a clean bill of health. Mostly I think I have it -- routine tests have all come back showing normal. The only one hanging over my head is heart health, and that stems primarily from the false diagnosis in 2002 of a heart attack (turned out to be gangrenous gall bladder, yuk). Even though I was checked out by a good cardiologist afterwards, the prospect of a heart attack has frightened me. It is time to check it out again and either get treated or reassured that I'm okay.

For the rest of everything, I have always wanted enough.  Just that.

May you also always have enough.

You always find the best prompts. I really enjoyed this one even though I did not participate. I learned that you and I have much in common.

You have enough and you do enough and you ARE enough, Beth.
