It’s Wednesday, and Jamie at Jamie Ridler Studios is back again with Wishcasting Wednesday.
Today’s prompt is
What Sweetness Do You Wish For?
I think this one is easy. There are kinds of little sweet things I’d like. Lazy summer days spent in the sunshine with my sweet, sweet husband and our friends and family. Afternoons on the beach, slight alcoholic buzzes surrounding us. Beautiful vegetables spilling from the garden that we’re going to be planting this weekend (I know it’s late; life has been busy the last few weeks). Fruit dripping from the muscadine vines on our porch, the apple and satsuma trees in our yard.
Not too much to ask for, I don’t think, and they aren’t hard wishes because they are things that we make happen on a semi-regular basis, although I’d like them to happen much more regularly.
But the big sweetness that I wish for is fertility. I suppose perhaps that fertility isn’t the right word. I’d like to be able to get pregnant. I’d like for the sweet husband and I to be able to have a child of our own, as seemingly all of our friends are doing right now. But if those aren’t the cards that we are dealt, then I’m OK with adopting or fostering or whatever it is that we are going to do. I feel like we’re in a good place, and I feel like we’re ready for the next step. My job will work itself out one way or the other. Sweet Husband’s job is going to be wonderful. We’re stable and comfortable and I’m working on my health. We’re ready for the next step.
Or at least I think we’re ready for the next step, and I wish for that sweetness…even though I fully realize that there will be many moments of difficulty.
What sweetness do you wish for this week? What blessings would you like to invite into your world now?
