I think it is funny when we sit down and really think about what we want and none of them usually entail material items... not that it's wrong to want things, they are just not what is most important to me. My wants are the simple things in life, the things that give me happiness and joy... the long term kind. I don't want instant gratification, that never brought any lasting joy. It actually has left me feeling emptier than before I started... which than had me looking for bigger things to fill that empty spot. None of which worked, since the empty part of me needed to be filled with love, not things.
The one about my children is what every parent wants in this world... I want my children to have joy... I want them to do better than I did as I did better than my parents. I am thrilled when they excel at whatever they do, that is what brings me joy... knowing my children have joy in their lives. I feel blessed to have my children... I am grateful that I was able to be there mommy or mama.
The one about David is simple, he gives the best hugs I have ever had... they are the kind that you are totally wrapped up by the other person, where time seems to stand still and all you can hear is the thumping of the other persons heart... and it's enough, just being able to breathe without so much tension. When I thought about what I wanted, I just want to breathe without the tension that is there now... I want to feel that relaxed again one day.
I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future ♥
