"What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things."

So I was thinking about this wish list business.
Many bloggers use this time of year to post their choice of luxuries they would buy 'if they only could'...
Chanel anything, Louboutin shoes, Judith Leiber evening bag, Pratesi sheets.....
If I had any one of these items,  all of these items, would I still wish for more?
If I slept in Pratesi sheets  would I sleep more soundly?
If I walked in Louboutins shoes, would I walk my children to the chupah?
If I carried a Leiber bag, would I wear it to my child's wedding?
If I bought a firstclass ticket to Israel, would my children be healthy?
But if I walked my child to the Chupa would I need a Judith Leiber?
If I saw my children's success would I wish for a Chanel?
If I watched my family love and care for each other would I need Pratesi to sleep well at night?
If I have Shalom Bayis do I need a Cartier diamond?
I think not...
                                                            My Wish List                           
       What can be added to the happiness of a man who is in health, out of debt, and has   
        a clear conscience?” -Adam Smith

This brings true and lasting happiness.

Scary thought no?

So many things to be grateful for. Don't believe me? Make a list.

Being a 'Sheitel Macher' I know this to very true...
This is my #1 wish for myself.
Because everyone wants to be with a happy person.

But as G-D would have it, what you wish for is your greatest challenge...
So I will try to go simple.

I wish it were that easy........
