I want:

Dave to be successful in his business so that we can see him more and so that we can be generous to those who need it more than we do
to give
to love others the way I am loved
people to feel loved by me
my children to never doubt that I love them
to take a wine tasting class
figure out how to make things with my sewing machine
to play tennis with Dave
provide experiences rather than things for our girls

to be able to eat whatever I want
new landscaping
to finish our basement
to paint my house again

to be a better family member
to iron Dave's shirts

give each of my girls a kiss to say good morning
climb the stairs this morning
eat a piece of pizza last night
drink a lot of water yesterday

take my vitamin at all this week
do the stairs yesterday like I was supposed to (it was raining)
