My Hearfelt Wish!

‘Happy birthday mom!’

My eleven year old son congratulated me this morning, gave me a bear hug, a kiss, money, and cards as presents. My husband, daughter, little sonย did the same!

I’m really rich now! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, my son had this amused look on his face when he asked,

‘Mom what do you really wished for today?’

I looked at him, he’s going to secondary next September, andย he knows me like the palm of his hands. I didn’t answer him, rather, I went downstairs, opened the door and staring at my lawn, I saw images of people of all nations, ethnic groups, hugging each other and Louisย Armstrong’s ‘What a wonderful world’ came to my mind.

I see trees of green…….. red roses too
I see em bloom….. for me and for you
And I think to myself…. what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue….. clouds of white
Bright blessed days….dark sacred nights
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world.

The colours of a rainbow… pretty the sky
Are also on the faces…..of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands…..saying.. how do you do
They’re really saying……I love you.

I hear babies cry…… I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more…..than I’ll never know
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world

The colours of a rainbow… pretty the sky
Are there on the faces…..of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands…..saying.. how do you do
They’re really saying…*spoken*(I ….love….you).

I hear babies cry…… I watch them grow
*spoken*(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than I’ll never know)
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself …….what a wonderful world.

I closed the door, and went upstairs, hugging him briefly, I said,

‘I want peace, love, and safety for all.’

He didn’t say anything.ย When he was ready to go to school, I had the strangest feeling. If I could physically stand before God today, ย I’ll tell him the same,

‘I want peace, food, shelter and safety for all.’

I wish you’llย all have peace and safety wherever you are in the world, have a great week! I’m going to do a bit of shopping after work from my cash windfall. I love you all!

Peace. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Happy Birthday. I was thinking as you told us you received money from your love ones, that the money wasn’t your treasure but the ones who gave you the extra cash are your real riches. Enjoy your day.

  26. Happy Birthday my friend. I haven’t visited in a while and then this morning I thought I’d pop across to visit – lo and behold IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! 21 again eh?
    I came here to ask you to visit my blog actually, I wrote two short stories over the last couple of days… well it’s actually one story told from two different perspectives. It was a bit of an experiment and I wanted you to cast your (one year older and wiser) eye over them and let me know what you think? I hope you don’t mind. Please read ‘First impressions’ before reading ‘Lasting Impressions’. Cheers mate, luv ya!
