When you wish upon a star…

Every year I make the same resolution: to try to eat better, exercise more and get healthier. And I commit to it like gangbusters until about….oh….May. Then I start slacking more and more until December rolls around and I’m pretty much back where I started. Vicious cycle.

Not doing it this year.

This year I’m going to make wishes. Just wish on a star, a satellite, whatever that bright shiny spot in the far, far sky is.

My wish list is as follows:

For Chef Vivi and Captain America, I wish for continued happiness together, continued success in their chosen fields, and continued stability in all things financial (God Bless you Danny). I wish for them to grow and develop, as a couple and as individuals. I wish for him to be challenged in his martial arts so that it continues to fascinate and reward him. I wish for her to be challenged in her culinary ventures to learn more, experiment more, develop a style of her own that will delight all her senses. I wish for her to learn patience. Also for her to learn safer knife skills so her little digits will stay intact, and I wish for Dan to convince her that a new little ChubChub in the family is a great idea!

For Avery’s Mom, I wish stability, independence, and honesty. I wish for her to decide what is important, really important and then make that her priority. I wish for her to grow as a woman and a Mother, to be strong, mature and responsible. I wish for her to realize that her value as a person is not set by another person’s opinion of her, but rather by her own sense of pride, intelligence and integrity, all of which I wish for her to develop more of. I wish for her to make smarter, less selfish decisions. I wish for her to realize the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that comes with being completely self sufficient. I wish contentment for her…

For Peanut, I wish for the comfort that can only come from a  stable home environment. The peace of falling asleep with a smile in her heart every night in her own warm, safe, comfy room surrounded by all the things she loves and have the sweetest of  dreams. I wish for her to never know the pain of uncertainty. I wish for her to never, ever feel like she is not important, or loved, or protected. I wish for her to always know that she is cherished and her well being is her family’s top priority. I wish for her to develop a strong sense of self worth and limitless confidence.

For my Hubs, I wish for a life free of pain so that he can pursue his hobbies with no thoughts of whether his body will allow him to do whatever he wants. I wish good luck for him in the woods, for his aim to be steady, his judgment good and his eye like an eagle. I wish for his worries and concerns for his family to be short lived and easily resolved. I wish for his numbers to one day hit the jackpot, and for him to be able to live out all of his dreams. I wish for him to never forget how much I admire and adore him. I wish peace of mind for him.

For myself, I wish for good health. All of my other wishes will come true when all of theirs do….

For all of you, I wish for peace, love, happiness, comfort, stability and something that makes you laugh, really laugh each and every day.

  1. Boy I’m glad I’m catching up over lunch rather than just reading a book. This hits home so well…thanks for that! I try to “wish” for each of my five girls and my son (not to mention those 8 grandbabies) from time to time and this reminds me I haven’t been as conscientious lately as I’d like. Great post Lori! Blessings for you and yours over the holidays.
