3 Wishes

And the next one from the list:

If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for?

This is an easy one, and they aren't unrealistic wishes, they are just going to take hard work, dedication, and TIME (thus patience, which is a challenge for me).  

If I had three wishes, I would want these things to be a reality NOW:

5 things that make me happy!

It's been a while since I have added a post to my list of 25 things I want my kid(s) to know about me.  I was getting frustrated about going in order, so I decided to just write them in whatever order I felt like! 

And today's post is . . . What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?
