I Want It All

It’s Thanksgiving weekend, and I AM SOOOOO THANKFUL for all that I have … good health, my children, my husband, my family (immediate, extended, and otherwise), financial security (whatever that is), a lovely home (even though it’s a mess), sunshine, the “people” who look out for me (up there), hot showers, yummy food (especially anything I do not have to cook myself), and so … much … more!

But even with all that I have, I want, I want, I want … everyday, I feel like I am yearning for something … usually it’s more time to do some of the things I want to do like … 

  • waking up and feeling rested
  • working out three times a week
  • cooking delicious and nutritious meals for my family (that Big M will actually eat)
  • setting goals and actually achieving them
  • helping others more
  • doing more crafts and projects with Big M
  • “celebrating” holidays more (i.e. decorating the house, teaching the girls the meaning of the holiday, etc.)
  • watching a really good movie
  • scrapbooking
  • writing more
  • sewing
  • getting together with my family more often
  • becoming more involved in my community
  • getting together with friends more often
  • going to concerts
  • taking my girls to church
  • spending more quality time with my husband
  • “going out” once in awhile
I. Want. It. All. And I want it all, right now. Today. This week. Right now. But I know I can’t have it all. I know I can’t do it all. Not … right … now.
