One Wish


If I could have just one wish right now it would be to see you every day.  My life’s choices mean that I’m geographically not so close to you.  I have a wonderful husband here and three wonderful children and I couldn’t be happier.  That is, apart from the fact that there are so many people I love so dearly who I can’t see as often as I would like.  I miss you!
So, this blog is for all those conversations we would have if I was able to pop over for a quick chat, meet you for coffee, have dinner with you, watch our children play together, watch our nieces play netball or our nephews play rugby, go out for a day of shopping, talk endlessly over bottles of wine or go for a walk with you.  Every day conversations about what is happening in our lives right now.  Just chatting and hanging out.
Why don’t I just pick up the phone?  Well, timing is one, and we all get busy.  But quite frankly, I’m not a big one to talk on the phone.  Never really have been, and it’s probably not going to change.   Not because I don’t want to.  I would love to be able to just pop over for a chat whenever I wanted, but I can’t.  And I’m lazy when it comes to picking up the phone (picking up after myself in general is not my strong point either apparently!).
So, this is my way of seeing you every day, so I don’t feel so apart from you, so you get to see my children grow up, so you can share my life and so I can feel that you are here with me.  Leave me comments; I’d love for you to part of the conversation.
But, yes I will still pick up the phone!

So, if you had one wish right now, what would it be?
