New Years Wishes

Here on the last day of 2007 I am thinking about New Years Wishes.
Not the dreaded resolutions, and not a re-hash of the past, either.
I'm thinking about the wonderful things that will happen in 2008....and most of them I have no clue about right now. They will be surprizes as the year advances.

I generally "break" those resolutions within a few weeks. I think the statistics even say 85% of resolutions are abandoned within 2 weeks.

Maybe a wish has more staying when I wanted a horse. I spent my childhood years wishing for that horse, and along the way got many horseback rides, model horses and such.
When I was 21, I married a wonderful man who had two horses, so I got the horses I had wished for, plus a husband, which I had not been looking for!
The husband has lasted longer, and been much more rewarding (for 32 years!)(and still counting).

So maybe wishes have a way of lasting longer and aren't done in by the first disappointment or unexpected results. Wishes could have a way of changing into what we really need.
You might not be able to go to the moon.... but you can have some adventures!
You might not have a movie-star for a lover.... but the one you do find could last forever.
You might not live in a castle, have piles of gold & diamonds, and closets full of designer clothes....but money to buy fabric and a house to stash it in are all that's really needed!

For 2008 I am wishing all of us our hearts' desires...even if they turn out to be Really Surprizing Things We Didin't Know We Needed!
