How I Wish

filed under: Miscellaneous on October 14, 2009

I wish someone had whispered in my ear…

… that afternoon in August when we were all sitting outside, and as the sun set behind the trees, a faint wind stirred, causing me to rub my arm and get a chill as I lounged in the shade.

I wish someone had said, "THIS IS YOUR FALL.  ENJOY IT NOW."


… that afternoon when I opened the garage door and walked out.  I wish I had heard a whisper before I almost dropped my baby out of fright. I wish I had heard a warning before I started having frantic irrational thoughts about death.

I wish my dear hubby had said, "Honey?  I hung up my waders.  No need to be alarmed when you go in the garage."



… that morning after I scarfed down my healthy breakfast of 2 bananas and then dared to step on the scale.

I wish someone had whispered, "It doesn't matter what you eat, you are still going to gain 3 pounds.  You should have gone for the pancakes and sausage."

What about you?  Is there anything you wish someone would have whispered to you?

    *I wish someone would have whispered to me that if you happen to be given a night at a nice hotel for your anniversary and you happen to (ah-hem) two.times…you might end up with twins! Twin boys that is…wouldn’t trade them for the world!

    Love this post!! I wish someone had whispered (or SCREAMED) into my ear as an older teenager that I needed Jesus more than any boy or man and that only HE could fill my heart (and body) and maybe I wouldn’t have made the mistakes and stupid choices I made.

    Loving the waders!! I am wishing that someone would (everyday) remind me to keep my patience with my kids because they’re only little for such a short time.
