I wish…

1) I were just a little bit taller
2) My grandmother lived closer to me
3) My little brother lived closer to me
4) My parents didn’t smoke (I really worry about their health)
5) I had paid more attention as a child to my music lessons in class and actually learned how to really play the piano
6) I could teach myself to play the acoustic guitar
7) I weren’t so self-conscious about showing others my art work
8) I weren’t so shy about letting people read my short stories and the novella I never finished writing
9) I didn’t have verbal diarrhea sometimes
10) Hubby and I had kids of our own right now, but that I could bypass the actual giving birth part. That terrifies me!
11) My grandfathers and my Aunt Zenaida were still alive
12) I didn’t have such horribly uncontrollable hair!!!
13) I were better at math
14) I didn’t have to be so nice all the time
I could be a little tougher and even a bit mean sometimes- you know, to be able to just say things are they are and voice my opinion and not always have to worry about how the other person feels.
15) I wish I didn’t always feel I need to be careful of others’ feelings, or be 'diplomatic' and 'politically correct'...or feel like I always need to be "Switzerland", the peace maker amongst feuding friends.

Dearest Chrissy.

1) Taller - everybody wishes that. No matter how much taller you are.

2) Grandmother - does she like Manitoulin? Would she want to move to the island?

3) Brother - he's a city boy, isn't he? I guess that just calls for more visits. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

4) Parents - umm... yeah... can't really make your parents do anything they don't want to... just keep praying.

5) Piano - why?

6) Want me to send you some self-help guitar books to swap for Tim Horton's?

7) Self-conscious - I'll have to talk to you on the phone about that one...

8) Reading. C'mon! We're all reading your blog! Start a small blog story! I'm sure there'll be a ton of us who'll enjoy it! You only live once!

9) Verbal diarrhea - that's ok by me. I prefer honesty over smooth-talkers (untrustworthy)

10) Kids. Shut up. Ok. Ok. Keep praying.

11) grandfather and aunt. They love you too, Chrissy. I love my dad

12) Hair - I'm sure it's not that bad. What's wrong with it? Too straight?

13) Math. Are you kidding me? You have to be different kind of freak to do math.

14) I think you only wish to be "mean" because you want to upfront about your emotions. You're definitely one of the few people in the world that fits into the category "person everybody likes". It's a blessing, we all need someone like you in our lives to see how wonderful the world can be... simply by being you.

But if you're talking about cutting off toxic people from your life, do it. I rehearse what I have to say to assholes and ignoramus regularly so I can bitch without hesitation. I actually have to stop myself because I became too harsh in my late teens and early twenties. But you -- time to buckle down and bite the bullet. Tell them girlfriend!

Thank you for your honest comments on the blog...esp for the response to #14!! So good to have great friends, even if you're soooooo far away! LOL

PS. Piano because I think it's such a magical instrument :) I envy those who can play!
