If you knew a Genie ..

What would you do if you were walking along and discovered this unique lamp / gravy boat thing.  Would you wash it and buff it up?  What would you do if a genie appeared.  We all know it wouldn’t, but what would you do if he granted you 3 wishes.

We all know that everyone usually says 1. wealth for you, 2. health for you and 3. love for you.  Something like that anyway, but suppose this genie said you have to come up with some other wishes because he was bored with people always wanting these things .  What would you decide to wish for.  It could make the decision a bit more difficult.

Me I would wish for : 1.  for my husband to still be alive.  I know that can’t happen but if we are going to dream, might as well dream big.  He had such an influence on all our lives and is missed more than words can even explain.  2.  for cancer to have never existed.  I would wish that nobody ever was or would be affected by this evil disease.  And 3.  that my children and grandchildren will forever be happy in their heart and mindful of God.  With this they should have or be able to find inner happiness which in turn helps to create a happy family.

I don’t really care about money.  I can’t take it with me when I die.  I have explained to my children just how my will is laid out and what they are to do about that.  As far as health, we all want to be healthy, but sometimes you just get the luck of the draw.  I have done my routine health exams but what about next year?  The year after that?  Our fate is out of our hands.  I have been blessed that I have wonderful children.  We are always there for each other, we always have been.  We are strong willed.  When my husband was suffering from cancer a strong circle of friends said we were “NeffStrong”.  We were but sometimes we felt so tired and weak and they would pull us back up.  They helped to really make us “NeffStrong”.  They loved and care for us and when sometimes we would forget to eat, we never had to look for food. Sometimes when we just needed a hug and for someone to say “it will be okay” even though we all knew it wasn’t going to be. This is the loyalty I wish my children and grandchildren to have and to carry on through their lifetime.  Caring for one another whether you are blood related, work related, neighbors, or friends.  Humankind is such a wonderful word.
