What I Want ~ Theme Thursday

I’m feeling pretty thankful and fulfilled lately. So I’ll admit I did wait until the last possible moment before shuffling off to bed procrastinate a bit last night before frantically flipping through the photos of the week to find one to complete our Theme Thursday assignment.

When I finally did sit down to really think about it, I realized…

What I want is for the girls to never lose their sense of wonder and curiosity.

What I want is for them to never forget how to laugh.

And when they can’t laugh, I want them to know that their Mommy and Daddy are always there – always on their side.

What I want is for the girls to be comfortable and happy in their own beautiful bodies.

I want them to remember to treat each other lovingly and fairly, so they will always have each other as a best friend.

What I want is for them to always find the good in everything.

And finally, what I really want is for both girls to always know how very much they are loved.

Pop on over to Stacy’s today to find out what everyone else is wishing for!
