It’s My Birthday TODAY and this is what I plan on wishing for when I blow out the candles…

23 Aug

I could wish for this…

or I could wish to go here…

Or at least like I was there by eating this…

then I could wish that even if I ate all that I still was able to do this…

But even though I would love to not have to worry about money, to travel to Italy, to dine and wine like there is no tomorrow and to be THIN… That is not what I will be wishing for when I blow out all 43 of my candles on my homemade cake that my baby girl loving made following the recipe in her cake Boss Cook Book she got for her birthday. No what I will wish for has to do with this…To see that they same smile, that same calmness on Monday when I pick him up after his first day of school. My wish is that he is not bullied or picked on and that he makes friends… good friends who will have his back. My wish is that anxiety and frustration and all the other demons that sometimes come along with a diagnosis of autism… may they not rear their ugly head. May they not knock on his bedroom door and keep him up at night. This is what I wish for!

I will also wish for this…

 That she will remain as sweet as the cupcake painted on her cheek. That she will allow the world to see how Big her heart is. That she will have the strength to be her own person. That she always knows that I do not think of her Secondly or as an after thought. She she is near and dear to my heart and always will be. That just as I love Jay for the perfect person her, I love her for the Perfect GRACE she is! I will also wish that her magazine that launches on Monday will have some success because she needs it… not me! She needs to know that she is not alone!

I will also wish for my husband. that he stays safe when he leaves us and that he will always return home to us in as least the same shape if not better than when he left!  That I will have the chance to grow old with him. That we have the opportunity to watch our children grow up and to see their children one day! That  he knows just how much I love him, appreciate him and not just need him but WANT him in my life and always will.

I would love to have a million dollars, travel to Italy to eat whatever I want and still loose weight. But if there is one thing this journey I am on has taught me, it is to to be careful what you wish for. Like a Jeanie in a bottle… I know I may only get 3 wishes and I choose to use them on the people who matter most to me!

But I still wouldn’t turn down a suitcase filled with money, a plane ticket to Italy or a nice bottle wine. Just saying  :)

  1. When I first clicked on it I saw the beck Dino thing and thought ok Sharon wants a dinasour toy hmm then I noticed it was a ad. Silly me.

  2. Ha ha ha! I know I told my hubby that was what people were going to think. I get paid by Blogher to do those advertisements every now and then. That one will run on this one post and on one other post in September and I get paid $75 for embedding a code in it! So yes it looks like crap but $75 is one month rental on the stupid standing Bass jay will be playing in school! LOL
