Make A Wish – Old Skool

Today on the Kickin’ it Old Skool Blog-a-Thon, we’re challenged to make a wish.

Making wishes is hard. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become less permissive of what I allow myself to wish for. I’ve become a realist. Jaded, even.

I don’t make wishes any more.

I rather miss the frivolity of being a kid. Thinking that I could wish for a pony and get one and all would work out.

Such is life. Such is growing up.

But I do have a wish.

I wish for my son to see his own brilliance. I wish for my son to gain control of his emotions and stop with the violent acting out. I wish for my son to see his own worth and be at peace.

He’s only nine, and already dealing with such difficult things. I want him to be happy with life and with himself. Is that too much to wish for?

That’s what I wish for.

How about you?
