to wish for things? Let yourself do that today.
Every Christmas season when I was a kid and even
into my early teenage years we'd get a catalogue
from Sears called The Wish Book.
My sister, brother and I would spend hours
pouring over the hundreds of pages of toys,
clothes and neat gadgets, dreaming of having all
the things we were wishing for.
This walk down memory lane was jogged by Jamie's wishcasting question.
Of course it also triggered memories of songs by Pat Benatar and Linkin Park
too but I digress.
We've started house hunting and have looked at ten so far.
Two have potential but each is missing a certain something
a feeling of belonging...for all of us.
So the search continues for a third option.
What belongings do I wish for?
I wish for the sense of belonging to make it
self known for all of us in the houses we've
narrowed down to or in the third option
coming to us.
I wish the move of our belongings from this house
to our home be filled with as much grace and
ease as possible. I wish for them all to fit and
be arranged effortlessly in our new home.
I wish for any new belongings we may need or
want for our new home to be things of quality
and richness that speaks to who we are as
a family and helps create a sanctuary for us
and our guests.
I wish for a sense of belonging in the
neighborhood we move into. I wish for
ease in connecting and getting comfortable
with our new neighbors.
I just wish to belong.
