Imperfections we all have them
I wish I had no stretchmarks and a non wobbly tummy but I don’t, instead I have two beautiful children.
I wish I had bigger boobs, but I don’t but hubby still thinks I’m sexy.
I wish I had either straight hair or curly hair, but I don’t I have a lot of uncontrollable frizz but it keeps my head warm.
I wish I could could bake cakes properly, but I can’t , thank God for Betty Crocker- the kids don’t mind at all what we bake.
I wish I could sing, but I can’t, not one single note, my daughter once said I sang like the devil and laughed I laughed and now as non-singers we both love to belt out songs in the car.
Imperfections in our life
I wish my mother didn’t have Alzheimer’s, but she does and I’m sad but happy she’s here with me.
I wish I drank more water, but it’s boring, so I drink coffee, tea, chocolate milk, red wine and bubbles and I hope my fruit smoothies and cranberry juices balance the other drinks out.
I wish I slept longer than three hour stretches, but I can’t my lovely mum likes to wake up through the night to be cuddled and reassured.
I wish I had a smaller to do list, but I don’t so I get done what I can and I worked out that deadlines don’t actually kill you, when you don’t complete them on time.
I wish my dad I had met his grandson, but he didn’t but I see his qualities in my little man and that makes me smile.
I wish I had more time to catch up or even call my friends but I don’t but this is something I can change, starting today .
Imperfections make you who you are
I wish I could stop wishing for stuff but I can’t that’s the human brain for you, but I know in my heart I am who I am and that wishing and dreaming is OK .
Having a family was my biggest wish, which took a few years to become true, so look at your wishes and look at what you have.
Did you not notice that some had come true? Or are you too busy wishing, you’ve not noticed them in front of you.
