There isn't much lacking in my life. I have a loving and supportive husband, plenty of friends, family nearby and since I could never conceive - we have our critters. We did seriously look into adoption years ago, but honestly could not afford it. There's a reason so many children are stuck in foster care, but I digress.
I'm happiest with a book or gardening tools in my hands. We had perfect weather this past week and I made several short trips outside to tackle my numerous rose bushes. Time to whack 'em down and feed 'em up for the March and April blooms. Winter was so mild this year that most of them were still full and blooming, so I had to mentally shore myself up to properly prune them. I'm hurting now, but was it ever worth it! Nothing makes me happier when I feel awful than looking outside at my gardens. If I can't get out, my piano is always waiting for me.
As for dreams, I'll approach that one along the lines of "what would you do if you won the lottery?" LOL! I don't need much for my own comfort, but not having to worry about our bills - whoa! How nice would that be? Then I'd turn to getting my entire family out of their debt and set up annuities for them. After that, I'd spread the wealth among my favorite charities which are mostly animal-oriented. I've got some friends and family who dream far bigger than I do and only need money to really get going with their businesses. How much fun would it be to just hand over the money and say, "OK, now go out and make your dream come true. My your dreams be fruitful and multiply!" Ah well, we are just talking about dreams, right? As my grandmother used to say, all it takes is filthy lucre..
This is a great thread.
Hope you don't mind me posting, I'm usually on the Arthritis forum but i think due to the Chronic pain I have I would love to keep posting and reading here.
If I had one wish, it would be to be able to right all the wrongs in regards to my husbands death. It is 7 years today that he committed suicide by jumping off a bridge that connects Ontario to New York State. He became clinically depressed and everytime I tried to get him help ie; Doctors, Police, hospital and mental health association every door was slammed in my face. To make a long story short, my two oldest children lost their father needlessly. They were 6 and 16 years old at the time. It is tragic to me and i live with the pain and guilt everyday. Therefore my wish would be to change all of the what ifs. Thank you for giving me the forum to say this. it's been a long time.
