One Special Wish

Remember when you were a kid and you'd get to break the wishbone? And if you got the long piece....your wish would come true? There were five of us grandkids in my family vying for the wishbone. Today, I have no clue what criteria my grandmother used to decide which two of us got to try to break the wishbone. I just remember that she was always fair about it. And I remember that she believed in allowing children to have the "magic" of wishing in their life. It's a part of being able to dream. And dreams are often the beginning of change. Wandering through the blogs today has left me feeling kind of melancholy. I'm a "fixer"...and there are alot of things here I'd love to "fix" for people.

I've seen your smile.
I've dried your tears.
I've listened to your heartaches.
And I've shared with you my fears.

Somehow I want to touch you.
The way you've all touched me.
I want to feel your heart beat.
I love you, can't you see?

So, today.....I'd like to grant you a wish. You can only have one this time. Everyone has a wish in their life....I know that I do. So, stop, and think.

If I could grant you one wish today......what would it be?

Dearest Angel

Last week was indeed a very emotional week here in Blogland... in some ways I feel at least somewhat responsible for that.. with my various rants over the past couple months about abuse and all... I truly hope and pray it has also been a healing week.. which leads me to.....

Here is my ONE wish

For healing and happiness to all those here in Blogland and around the world whom have been vicitimized and abused in any form! I know if this one wish could be granted it would go a long way towrad making this world a better place for us all.....

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 6:17 am:
Fantasylover...sometimes the first step in healing is being able to admit that you need it. So, I think that some of the rants, and opening of raw wounds is just that....healing. Your wish doesn't surprise me my it is for others! I too would like this wish, hold my hand....close your eyes real tight...and envision your wish coming true!

To bring my mother back!!!!

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 6:22 am: sweet friend...this is a wish that I was afraid my own daughters would be wishing this Mother's day as I was not sure I was going to live through my surgery. Needless to say, I'm very grateful that I am here. I will hold your hand, and feel your pain....and wish for you that the memory of your mother never leaves your heart...but begins once again to bring you great joy in remembering.

Why a wish would be simple.
I'd wish everyone could have a heart as big as yours. Then everyone would be nice and sweet.

Young folks have wishes and dreams.
Old folks have only memories.

Thanks for letting me wish Angel.

    And, as is my wont, you now get THREE wishes. What will they be?

    Your Healing is in my Highest Thoughts!
Close to what I would wish... but I won't tell or it won't come true!

I will share in Katey's wish, though. Better yet, everyone gets their wish, and an extra one to un-wish it, if needed. (If you've ever heard "be careful what you wish for," wel, here's a way to fix it

Pleasure...I'm feeling stronger each day and less tired too! Yours was a wonderful wish. I am shocked when I see the statistics as to how many children in our own country go hungry....we are too often guilty of thinking these things only happen in other countries!

My sweet Angel,

My wish is one that neither a Genie in a bottle, nor an angelofmercy is able to grant, no matter how hard they could or in your case WOULD try. So I would like to pass my wish on to another. Someone more deserving, more worthy, someone who needs it more than I.

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 6:01 pm:
Cru....close your eyes and hold my hands.....cause I'm going to make a wish for you...I think I know what your heart holds. You are a dear sweet man...and I will pass your wish on to someone else...and make my wish for you!

Wow! Angel,
That is a beautiful, but somewhat saddening post. You feel a little hurt by so much sadness and pain around you. You want to share your heart with others.

I think the WISH idea is great! I never saw anyone else ask about fulfilling someone else's wish. And I have lots of wishes.

My one wish is this: to have a beautiful, caring, sexy, loving, faithful girlfriend.

This is what I am searching for most of all. I want friends, yes. But, I have many of those. And I want more of course. But, a girlfriend? I do not have one. Never did. I thought I did once a month ago. But that was a lie.

I want a woman who will love me for who I am, give me love, care, and empathy every day, and will want no one else after finding me. I will give of myself completely and without question. She will have my heart and soul. I will love her every day (and tell her this every day). I will never abandon her or leave her for another woman. She doesn't need to be physically beautiful or even attractive, but it she has inner beauty, then that is what I want. I desire that over all else.

Well, that is all I have to say.

Thank you Angel for asking such a beautiful question and opening up your heart to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I thank you so much for being in my heart.

Take care Angel dear,

Jon C.

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 6:13 pm:
Jon....I believe you with all of my heart that you will be everything to that lucky woman when you find her. So, lets wish together with all of our might that you find each other real soon.

My wish would be for my son. He just joined the Army, but is being discharged because of his hearing. He will be able to re-enlist in 6 months. My wish, although impossible to come true, is that his hearing would improve. He is completely devastated over this.

Hope you are feeling better soon.



angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 9:34 pm:
SW...once again, a parent's unselfish wish for their child. It doesn't matter how old they are....when they hurt...we hurt. I will be praying for your son. Miracles do happen......and in the meantime...I'm hanging onto your hand for your wish to come true.

5/15/2006 7:25 pm

One wish... initially I'd say someone that cares and that I can hold at night, but that sounds like two wishes... and I think there are at least a few people who care about me for being me.

So someone to just hold at night is all I wish.

Perhaps then I can move forward without fear, and see about making everyone elses' wishes come true....

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 9:38 pm:
Complexly....I don't think that is two wishes at all. So, close your eyes real tight and together we will wish for that special person who will care about you as much as you care about them....and then you can hold each other all night for the rest of your lives.

....... My wish, " Bring my son home, whole, sound mind and even more of a man. Thinking clearly as well".

Thanks girl,

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/15/2006 9:39 pm:

One good dose of happiness for all. And since this means different things to everyone it really makes for a whole bunch of wishes all wrapped up in one. No one has to figure out exactly what makes them happy and to wish for it in order for it to come true. They just get happiness even if they aren't aware of what it would take for them. We leave that up to the actual granter of the wish to know.
Enjoy everyone.

angelofmercy5 replies on 5/16/2006 6:41 pm: this was a great wish! And you are one has to figure out what will make them happy....they just get happy! I love it! So, hold both of my hands...and close your eyes real tight...and wish with all your might for this to come true!
