At least once in our lives we are asked the question.. "If you were given the chance, what three things would you wish for?" It's funny, but at different phases of my life, I've not been able to come up with all three.
When I was young and being abused by my (evil) stepfather my wish was for it to stop, or that someone would tell, or that.. well, you get the picture.
When I was a smart ass teenager I wanted three more wishes with my first wish even though I wouldn't know how to use them.
During the 25 year marriage to my first husband I had random wishes here and there. (Never three at once, though.) I wished for money and happiness. I wished to be thinner.. prettier.
Now that I'm much (MUCH) older I still cannot come up with three wishes. Oh sure, I'd still like to be thinner or prettier, but I find myself wishing now for simpler things. A smile from my husband, a phone call from my kids.
Throughout my whole life there have also been wishes that I try not to think about. I want to be loved, accepted, content, acknowledged.. I want to be.. noticed. I want to feel important to someone. Scratch that. I want to be someone's MOST important (cherished?) person.
I suppose I am that person to my husband. I just don't feel it like I think I should. I don't know if it's me not picking up on it, or him.. not showing it well enough. Maybe it's a little of both.
