"I want!" How many times a day do we say this? Or our children? Now that I have a toddler, every time I hear the word "want" it's like nails on a chalk board. I am trying to "I want" less. Instead, I am trying to say "I would like..." It just sounds so much nicer. But for all the niceties, there are a few things in this life that I do truly WANT. (Aside from world peace, but who doesn't want that?)

I WANT Cody to not have to deploy for at least 12 months.

I WANT Dodo to be able to finish school without some of the stresses she has had.

I WANT Abbey's foot to be better.

I WANT to feel happy and secure all of the time. (working on that one)

I WANT to give Noah a sibling.

I WANT to see Bentley more than I do.

Those are my "want's" in this life...at least for right now. Are they too much to ask...I don't really know. But I do know that everyone has wants, and needs, and that sometimes we confuse those with "would like to have's". At least I have this blog to help me see things the way they are and put my life back in to perspective. It could always be worse. So, I'll take what I can get.

What would you like?
What do you WANT?
