Would like to...

I would like to be good looking.
I would like to be smart.
I would like to be talented in something.
I would like to be wise.
I would like to be brave.
I would like to be strong.

What would you like to be?


  1. Hmmm...
    you ARE smart,
    you ARE talented,
    you ARE wise
    ...I think.

    I would say you are also the other three, but i've never seen you (apart from a crappy scanned pic)and I know what you'd say about the other two :)

  2. Hevel, I was ready to say the same thing as above. I'm pretty sure you're "all that" you gotta be brave and strong and above all "real." Good-looking? Quoting the Velveteen Rabbit "What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when they were lying side by side near the nursery fender, before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

    "Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

    "Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.

    "Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

    "Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?"

    "It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand." Author: Margery Williams

    Hevel and friends, would you PLEASE pray for my friend "JustMe" ?? She's going through a painful "refining fire" right now. She's living proof of not "breaking easily" but the pain is intense.

    In His grip, Michal

  3. Yeah, I'll take all 6 of those, & throw in fertile while you're at it.

  4. I know you don't like to think so, but I think you are all those things. :)
    HUGS, Jon
