I wish I could get my truck back...

I had to give it back... was better than losing both of our vehicles, but really enjoyed having it. I have mentioned many times that I was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis in 2016. Being unable to work, and waiting for my disability case to be "resolved", we had to sell quite a few things to get by. Now... I know I'm not the only one, but when its YOU experiencing it... well, I digress...

More Energy

MS takes all the "get up and go" out of you. We like, no, love... to go outside and enjoy nature. This picture above is from one of our creations. Flower display if you will...if I had more energy, there would be SO many different things we could do out in the yard...

Lord knows there's always "plenty" to do

I wish I would have known of this Steemit'verse sooner. I have already made so many new friends...and honestly, it's not for the money. I know I am not going to get rich doing this, but the idea of getting notability for simply interacting with others is something I think is truly amazing.

Sure...
I could have wished for things like...

  • I wish I was rich
  • I wish I didn't have MS

... but I feel all things happen for a reason. Good or bad, we experience "everything" exactly as God intended us to. And if it "didn't" go as it did, I wouldn't have met my wonderful better half, I wouldn't have my awesome ginger son, and... I wouldn't have met all you lovely Steemians...

So...

There are my three wishes!! Thank you @xcountytravelers, for tagging me in this challenge...

Please keep this in mind, if you would like to participate...

  • Make a post with your three wishes
  • Mention someone who'd like this sort of thing
  • Use the #three-wishes tag

Id like to tag @stealthunicorn, @bearone, @old-guy-photos!!

Appreciated my friend, and agreed; I knew something wasn't right before being diagnosed with MS. In a way, I suppose "finding out" was perhaps a relief? Either way, we play the cards we are dealt. Thank you for your reply...followed as well!

Great wishes.
I lost my car too. First ever and only brand new car I will ever have due to illness so your first wish I SO understand.

Honest I can relate to ALL your wishes and wish there was something I could do to help.

Steem(it) is a wonderful place to be though. It has helped me more then I could have ever imagined. It a wonderful place to be surrounded by such caring people.

Peace

The one thing I am noticing about all of the #three-wishes post is that not is really wishing for things that aren't achievable. They accept that they have the ability to achieve them. Kinda nice about these people.

Fantastic wishes, that look like quite the truck. It is a shame when such illnesses create these hurdle to get over, but as you said things happen for a reason whether good or bad.

I'm glad you are enjoying it here on Steemit, the communities it creates is wonderful!

Appreciate your kind words and reply my friend! Conversely; what a wonderful thing to have done @jamerussell ... that's paying it forward indeed! My other half loves to color pages; helps her to relax... I am going to have to check out your #zencolouringcontest

See? Everything for a reason!
