As long as my friends and family are in good health and doing well in the rest of their lives, then I never have to think about my wish. One hope, one dream, one prayer, one must-have this season and all those to come. It is: the full restoration of my sight.
And, yes, I say it just like that. I want to be clear to the wish, hope, dream and prayer granters because I don’t want to just say “sight” and find myself with a new website, for goodness’ sake!
I don’t remember the wishes in my past, they were mercurial and lacked gravitas. (No, I did not receive a Word of the Day calendar as a birthday gift this weekend.) Now the wish has been decided for me, so ingrained in every fiver of my being that there is no consideration given, the thought is in my mind before the cake is placed on the table.
I never tell people what my wish is, for it is said that then it won’t come true, I found myself wondering this birthday if they know anyway. And I think that they do. Could I guess correctly what the people I am closest to would wish for? I think that I could. And I realize what a gift that is to know someone that intimately. I don’t take that for granted, but I sure would take my wish.
