Whimsical Wednesday ...

Over the past few days, I have been reading friends blogs speaking of what they expect in the New Year. Some have resolutions, some have wishes of a creative year ahead, while others just hope that it is a good year for all.

I thought Whimsical Wednesday was a good time to ask what wish would you have, if you could have anything come true? I think I would like to have met my Dad's Mom. I wish I would have had a bit more time with my Mom's Mom. I think I could have learned so much from these incredible women.

Looking forward to hearing from you ... 


  1. If I could have anything come true? Wow. It's strange. When posed with that question, I find I want a million things. When I don't consider that question, I think that I have all I need. It's amazing how the element of "possibility" can completely change one's mindset.

    Currently, my primary wish would be to live closer to my family and friends.

  2. Hi Sandy ~ So great to hear from you ~ I am right there with you, I do feel pretty content more times than not. Having "anything" come true puts a new spin on the answers we give ... I wish you lived closer, so we could see each other more often, also!

  3. Maybe my low mood is coming as a result of my daughter and grandchildren have gone back to Texas , after almost 2 weeks together.
    I miss them to the point where it actually hurts in my chest.

    What ' dogluvrinvt ' wrote obviously touched my soul.
    For some strange, unrealistic reason I never considered that my daughter would move far away and we would see her every 3 to 4 months for only a week.

    I know I should be grateful, but I'm not.
    Truthfully, I feel sorry for myself- today.
    Tomorrow will be better.
    Maybe I can get a painting out of this misery I'm experiencing ?

    ( my blog is mostly always neglected- please disregard, unless I get motivated to do something more with it, which is highly unlikely )

  4. I had such a wonderful time with my son over the holiday. For two weeks I thoroughly enjoyed having someone to chat with and hang with on a daily business. If I were to pick one wish, that would be to have someone in my life, a companion, who I could share the little details of daily life.

    Thanks for asking! xoxo Ryn

  5. I always enjoy seeing you here, Elizabeth! I want to say that your daughter is lucky to have a wonderful Mom like you - You have every right to miss them - Some days are easier than others, I am sure - Use this energy and make us something beautiful - You have so much to share!

  6. Ryn ~ I know what a special time it was for you and your son to be together at the holidays ~ I felt it in your writing, as well ~ I know this wish will come true for you, and my intuition seldomly fails me ... Just an FYI.

  7. Oh, there are so many things I would like to happen, but the one that stands out the most is my wish to have a baby. (I didn't mean to be so open (and I don't know why we all sometimes have difficult time expressing our true feelings) but hey, this is a friendly place, so I will share my feelings with you all)! Sometimes I think that it's never going to happen, as it didn't for ten years, but who knows, maybe this year... :)

  8. Sonja ~ Seeing my "wishing" has been working lately ~ I am going to "wish" for you to have an addition to your family this year ~ Can you imagine this happening? We will definately need to celebrate! Fingers crossed for you, two!

  9. Thank you so much K! That is so sweet of you. You have a heart of gold. :)

  10. So happy to find you in blogland as well as on FB Kristine ~ love your creative spirit!

    Loved your wishes for the New Year too and I think if I had to choose it would be along the same lines, to have the opportunity to spend time with those who inspire me the most. Happy New Year!
