I have always thought that having good health would be better than winning the lottery!!! Only when someone is constantly ill can they really empathise with another person ,so I guess that in a way I have already benefitted from my own condition.Money has never held huge importance to me,as long as I have been able to pay all lof the bills,have food on my table and clothes on my back! However I would LOVE to be really well,even for just one day!
Thanks so much Finy! The main thing though,is that I am genuinely a happy and content person,despite this one thing missing from my life!!! There are so many simple pleasures to be enjoyed all the time: a phone call from my son and parents,the sight of my darling dogs as they enjoy life to the full,the fragrance and appearance of my gorgeous flowers,the sound of the native birds early in the morning as they squabble for the nectar in the gum trees,... Oh! the list goes on and on! And on and on some more........
A extension on my veranda, so I can sit outside when the weather is warmer.
It would be nice, as I get older to have the option.Have a few plants on it, and sit and read a book.
I'm only talking an extra 2 meters.
But, it's not going to happen.......I know that much. :(
When I was a little girl I wanted long blonde hair, dazzling teeth and a chopper bike.
when I was a teenager I wanted long blonde hair, a smaller nose, dazzling teeth and a boyfriend.
Now I am 49 I have learned to live with the nose, it's not that bad really, have tried teeth whitening but gave up as too painful, haven't had a boyfriend since 1987 (married him) but would still love long blonde hair :)
My parents', sensibly, never gave into my wish!
So used to go to a Riding School instead, as often as I wanted. That was the trade-off! Worked well!
Then met someone with two horses, who allowed me to ride the second one! That worked as well, for many years.
Now, due much older, would be circumspect about riding as often as I did, but still enjoy the occasional trail-ride!
Honestly - at this moment I would love my late husband back in my life.
Realistically, nothing really as I am fortunate to have a comfortable lifestyle with no financial worries.
When we were young, for some reason I wanted my husband to buy a bright red jaguar which I fell in love with on first sight, which is strange really as I don't drive and have no interest in cars. He was the practical one and didn't buy it, bought a Peugeot instead.
