I Wish...

Since I'm feeling introspective and finding myself weighed down with the troubles of the universe I apologize, but today's wishes might seem a little heavy.

1. I wish people were as eager to forgive and move on as they are to anger and take offense. It seems that the world spins this web of "How Dare You" and everyone gets caught up in it. I am so blessed to have people in my life who help me remember to forgive and give people the benefit of the doubt. When I start getting to full of myself Jeeves or Mom will quietly remind me that everyone does and says stupid hateful things and often they feel bad about it but are too embarrassed to apologize and so it becomes a rift in what ought to be a good relationship.

2. I wish I was a little less impetuous. I sometimes get this surge of, "I'd rather be right than happy." Why does this happen to me? I don't know...perhaps someday I will develop the cooler head that will allow me to cut this out, cause it really doesn't feel better to be right, especially when its at the expense of your happiness.

3. I wish everyone appreciated the miracle that children are in our lives. My girls are the light of my day and the reason I get out of bed early each morning. I can't wait to get home from work and hear them talk and play with them. It saddens me so much when I hear stories of children in pain, unloved, uncared for. I would crawl on my lips through broken glass if they needed something and can't imagine letting them go without, or not loving them so much that they get sick of the hugs and kisses.

4. I wish I could eat all four of the cheesecake brownies that are sitting on my desk right now. I am feeling down today so depression (who sounds a lot like Vincent Price) keeps telling me that the brownies will make it all better. But he's a liar, so I had one, instead of four. I still feel sort of wretched, but at least I don't feel guilty and wretched.

You should try lemons! When I feel down, I slice a lemon and the scent makes me feel SO much better! I read a while back (somewhere) that lemons tend to make people feel happier. Sit in the sun for 5 minutes too. And if you ever crawl on your lips, I want to see that!

I'll call you about the lips thing, it may be a good publicity stunt. lol. Thanks for the advice. I will try the lemon, and the sun, I gotta do something, just feeling down today.

Great post, Ninja. You are right about children. They are so precious and innocent. I am so blessed to be a grandma. A chance to play all over again.

Hi Ninja!

Sorry you're feeling down! I did finally get your blog on my noteworthy diet blogs page with a super-cool thumbnail link that was long overdue!

http://rwaldrep.blogspot.com/p/other-noteworthy-diet-blogs.html

It probably won't make all the dark clouds over your head evaporate at once, but hey, it might blow a few of them away!

Your pages are so fun to read and I like how you write them often! You're doing a great job!

Holy Crap, Randy that is SO COOL, yeah it blew a few clouds away, thanks so much. I'm glad you enjoy the posts, Blogging keeps me from driving those around me crazy with my diet talk. I post it so people can choose to read it and then the verbal vomit is out of my system.
