Wish I May, Wish I Might

Daily Draw: Rider Waite Jubilee Tarot ~ Sun

If I could have one wish? Ah...how to phrase it? In sit-coms the grantees always use up their opportunity with inopportune phrasing. What jumps out of my mouth is to be assured I won't be poor and sick and unsheltered in my old age. That has been my prime concern for a long time. But by using that phrasing I might be wishing for a early death, right?

I'm reminded by this card of all the options we have for achieving what we most need. And how often the immediate need crowds out what we really should to be addressing. May I be granted the ability to disregard immediate gratification for the longer view. Two wishes...hey, they were cheap. Take a few for yourself.

"What makes the difference between wishing and realizing our wishes? Lots of things, and it may take months or years for wish to come true, but it's far more likely to happen when you care so much about a wish that you'll do all you can to make it happen." ~ Mr. Rogers 1928-2003
