I can’t believe 11/11/11 is finally upon us. It seemed an unreachable date back in the year 2000 (which seems silly, but really, how is 2022 looking right now? Hmm?).
National Blog Posting Month asks us to make three wishes for 11/11/11 and write about them.
So, I looked up the definition of wishes, and have included it here.
Wishes – an expression of a desire, typically in the form of a request or instruction; an expression of a hope for someone’s success, happiness, or welfare;
a thing that is or has been wished for. To want; desire; long for; to entertain wishes, favorably or otherwise, for: to wish someone well; to wish someone ill.
I don’t think wishes are just whims. I truly think…….they are the heart’s desire.
These are mine.
I wish for the beauty of the world to be seen, for a breath of hope to touch a lost soul, and for love to reach the hardest heart.
I wish my family a lifetime of dreams, for sparks of longing to be filled, and to always reach beyond what is possible. So you may feel the empowerment of what waits for you there.
I wish my husband – health, guidance, and reassurance. I wish him all the success he can handle. I wish for cures to be found; Type 1 diabetes, and Lupus. I wish you a long life with me!
To my youngest daughter, Bridget, I wish you laughter from your head to your toe. Because when you laugh, the world lights up.
To my second youngest daughter, Molly, I wish you the magic of play and fun. To always know the joy of being a child. And to find your path by faith, without using a map.
To my oldest daughter, Sydney, I wish you a lifetime of being cherished. That you always know your worth, and you give back as much as you get. I wish for you the sun and more.
To my mom, I wish you a warm blanket of comfort. It wraps you up, and holds you tight, so tight, that you never feel lonely or sad. I wish you rest and resilience.
To my second mom, Sue, I wish you strength of spirit and a left arm that works like new. I wish for all your joy and praise to be spread to every struggling soul who needs it. I wish that your light always shine as bright as you are.
To my sister, Deedy, I wish you a calm rocking boat of peace and patience. I wish that you could ride the current, and feel the sea breeze on your face. I wish you a life without loss, and that joy rises and sets each day with your husband and children.
To my brothers, Lonnie and Jay, I wish you memories of a lifetime. A brotherhood of love, and for you to be taken care of just as much as you have taken care of others. I wish all your good deeds be returned to you ten-fold.
And to those without family, I wish you the kindness of a stranger, and the gratefulness of a humble heart.
To my readers, and friends, I wish you a day that rains blessings. A day that you will never forget. That you feel something you have never felt before, and it moves you.
Maybe it is profound peace, or maybe a gut of gratitude, or maybe…..it’s just a very lucky day.
I know that is more than three wishes……..and I hope that is okay.
Happy 11/11/11 day! Tell me, what are you wishing for?
