I attempted to do that last year but the rain and wind saw to it that the lanterns and my wishes never left the ground.
My wishes were:
1. To be loved
2. To stay Myeloma free
3. To be published
4. To make my first radio documentary
The two most important ones were granted (1 and 2) and I am grateful to be starting 2014 having celebrated another year being cancer free and having celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary.
Wishes 3 and 4 are still under development and the ball is firmly in my court on those.
This year's wishes are:
1. To stay myeloma free
2. To have a year of health and happiness in our home
3. To stay employed
4. To rekindle old friendships and not allow myself to be taken for a ride by people masquerading as "friends"
5. Wishes (3 and 4) from last year
So here's to a year of dreams and wishes coming true for me and anyone reading this.
