If you had 3 wishes

The Genie has appeared and is prepared to grant you three wishes.  You can ask for anything.  Whatever you can imagine is your’s for the asking.

What would you ask for?

Would you have the wisdom to ask for the right thing?

Would you ask for good health, for wealth, for days filled with happiness and joy?

A number of years ago we had gone to Florida in March to visit Leanne and Shawn.  The kids were young and in the evening after they were in bed, Shawn and I went outside into the warm Florida evening.  Turning to Shawn I mentioned how wonderful it was to be outside in the evening in just a short sleeved shirt.  Shawn’s response took me back a bit.

“After a while the sun and blue sky gets a bit boring”… he responded.  I think I heard right…bored of sunshine, warm evening breezes, deep blue skies – bored of it?

The contrast of life helps us appreciate the sun, the good the pleasant the joys.  Without the dark sky we miss the joy of the sun breaking through cloud.  Without the cold wind we miss the pleasure of the warm breezes.

So if you had three wishes would you ask for good health, for wealth, for days filled with happiness and joy?
