“To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect”
― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
Treegirly has asked us to make a wish today. When you are wishing, why stop at one, right? And I believe Jane Austen is right, so here is a list of my expectations:
1. Be a best selling author
2. Run a coffee cum cake cum book shop – the shop will have brick walls, french windows opening to airy verandas with bougainvillas creeping up and down and going out to a ground full of shady trees, flowering plants and creepers
3. A house on top of a hill overlooking deep blue sea. It should have a reading room, with roof to floor shelves filled with all my favorite books on three sides and the fourth side opening out to a breath taking view of the ocean and the mountains
4. Travel all over the world
5. Retire with loads of money, tomorrow morning
You think it is too much to wish for? But then I am not wishing for it, just expecting it to come my way 🙂
Now, if you ask me about one talent that I would wish for, I would not want any, honestly. I am thankful to God for all that He has provided me with.
But yes, there is one thing that I wish, hope, expect and pray for – for my children to grow up as good human beings and for them to have the talent to make a living out of what they love doing the most. That would be the one wish that I hope the heavens would grant them!
