I find myself doing a lot of wishing these days. The turmoil of the world, the very non-presidential presidential campaign, these things are making me wish for something different. I think I’ll share my wishes, and my photos representing my dreams of a more pleasant, stressless time. Another thing to wish for.
My yard work would magically be done, everything in order, looking good, ready for winter.
While I’m wishing that, I wish winter wetness would come in the form of rain in the basin. It can snow all it wants in the mountains, but I’d rather not fight it at my house.
For a nose that I can wiggle and what needs to be done is done. Do you remember that TV show – Bewitched?
For happiness for my loved ones.
That we would all use our brains as God intended when he gave us them. That we would learn to think things through, check things out, not blindly accept what social media (and the press) puts before us. Think, not react.
When we have an honorable man in office, we would appreciate him/her, rather than vilify him/her. That we could recognize honor when we see it. That we would not expect perfection from our elected officials, but demand honesty. And appreciate it when it exists.
That our candidates for office could honestly say something like: “This is what I believe, this is what I will work for. You must remember, however, that I cannot do anything alone – it takes a team, it takes cooperation of all of us.”
Then I wish that could happen. Cooperation, teamwork.
I had more energy, more motivation.
Most of all, I wish we could allow differences in cultures, peoples, worlds – and not condemn those differences. That we could be fair, honorable, honest, and nonjudgmental. The world needn’t be perfect, but I wish it could be better.
