If I were single, I’d probably be wishing for “I wish he loves me” but well, I’m married and have gone through a lot of challenges that involves other people aside from myself.

The only time I make a wish is when I blow my birthday candles. My default wish is always “I wish for peace, love and good health”. I laugh every time one of my daughters exclaim that I sound like a contestant from a beauty queen pageant. Really what more can I ask? I know they are idealistic but some things are within our control such as my family life. I can choose peace instead of getting angry at small irritating things that my husband does. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

I wish my girls and my hubby to always be happy, and love to overflow . I love conversations, friendship and laughter. I hope to live a meaningful life where I can give back. I wish for no more wants, or musts, or needs.

And good health? Well, health is wealth. Without good health, how can I enjoy life or wish for material things.

They say today is good time to make that wish. If I catch the time 11:11 tonight , then as always I will use my default wish.

What about you? What do you wish for?
