What Do I Want?

That is a really good and fully loaded question. Today, we'll go philosophical.
I came across this article a few days ago and has me thinking A LOT. The article had something to do with the crafting business but applies to our daily lives, too.
 Hmmm, I think I have almost everything I want in life. For now. I have a lovely family, a great husband who provides us with everything to his best capabilities, who spoils me(meaning he gives me slacks with the houseworks!) He's not demanding and lets me do my own thing. My 2 boys are independent individually and are now teenagers. Hazel is a special, independent(in some ways) and unique person. I thank God everyday that I married  and had children early in life.
The Purpose Of Life- Eleanor Roosevelt
After much thinking and pondering, there are 3 things that are top on my list on what I want :

A healthy life
A new house
And more comfortable financially.

I don't ask a lot but when I do, I'll ask for the best that life can offer.

I'll leave you with a poem from one of Hazel's books which is beautiful and meaningful to me.

THE SECRET PLACE

There's a place I go, inside myself,
Where nobody else can be,
And none of my friends can tell it's there-
Nobody knows but me.

It's hard to explain the way it feels,
Or even where I go.
It isn't a place in time or space,
But once I'm there, I know.


It's tiny, it's shiny, it can't be seen,
But it's big as the sky at night...
I try to explain and it hurts my brain,
But once I'm there, it's right.


There's a place I know inside myself,
And it's neither big nor small,
And whenever I go, it feels as though
I never left at all.

The 3 things you mentioned you want most in life are exactly the same 3 as I want.

Very nice poem.

Have a great and healthy day ;-)
