a birthday thought, or two

when i was in college, the first time, some friends and i put together wish lists. on these lists we included things that we wished were reality. in honor of my birthday here is my wish list.


that abuse was punishable by death.
the size of a woman's brain mattered more than the size of her waist.
for people to see God's love in me.
that friends acted like friends all of the time, not just when it was convenient.
for my children to know what real love is.
that women understood that we are often our own worst enemy.
that all children could understand unconditional love.
that parents understood how precious childhood really is.

now a short list of thanks

fall, i hate the hot weather.
a husband who can do just about anything that he puts his mind to.
kisses from children who love me no matter how bad of a mom i think i might be.
friends, always. those that are close and far away.
my health, i know it sounds corny, but really i am.
my education, i might be just a housewife, but i'm glad that i am an educated housewife.

An education is something that no one can ever take away from you. That should always be on my thankful list too.
