What's On Your Wish List?

For me, it's Time. Extra time. A bucket full! Wouldn't it be wonderful? A bucket of time, just for Mom. Time for a nap. Time for good book. Time for extra chores. Time for a Hallmark movie. Shoot! Time to put two thoughts together! LOL!

Like everyone else at this time of year, time is in short supply for the cumbersome list of things on my To Do list.

Yesterday, my middle son had oral surgery. So I'm all about keeping him comfortable, and playing catch up with work he (and I) miss.

Too bad the rest of the world doesn't pause while I tend to the "injured." There are still meals to cook, basketball and Christmas Pageant events, chores to be done, gifts to be made and wrapped, etc., etc., etc.,

So wouldn't it be wonderful to have a bucket of extra time stashed away in the pantry? Then, on days like this, where any time on the computer makes me feel guilty, I could just get it out and tackle the mountains at my leisure!

The worst thing for me is that when time is so short, I get short--with everyone. My patience all but disappears, and all of a sudden, the little things begin to stick in my hide. The mail across the counter, the hide and seek laundry, the toys I keep stepping on, and even the accidental dropping of a glass knickknack . . .they all push me further and further up my little wall until I blow a fuse.

Barbara Johnson says, "Godliness is the ability to let your light shine after your fuse is blown."

I'm going to have to ask God for help with this, because I'm thinking my light got blown full out (along with my fuse) over the weekend. Thankfully He's in the business of Light, and Forgiveness and Fuses and things.

I know He can help me put things in order. But I'm still putting a bucket of time on my wish list! A girl can always dream...

What's on your wish list?
