It’s Wishful Wednesday again! I was watching the new NBC series, Emerald City, last Friday night when this week’s wish came to me. In the show, Dorothy makes a birthday wish and I thought it was the best wish ever. Her was that she was more. Not anything grand or spectacular just more. As I thought about it I realized that whomever wrote that was right.
At forty years, old I can tell you that this was not how I saw my life going or what I had planned for it. In fact, there was so much more that I had planned but life happened. My father died which left my mother to be care for which in turn meant moving to where we are now and then I met a man that changed the course of my life even more. Gone are the girlish dreams of grandeur and in their place, are the dreams and hopes of a woman who knows they can change at the drop of a hat.
Life happens but my wish is for my life to be more. Like Dorothy I don’t need or want anything grand just more. My biggest wish is that when I come to the end of my life that I can look back and even though there will be regrets, they don’t outweigh everything else. That I can look back and say I took that chance when I was scared to death. That I lived my life as fully as I possibly could and I wish that for each of you as well.
