You get what you need

You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need.

WANT a lot more money and economic security
GET a nice roof over my head, food in the house, and a healthy family

WANT someone to take care of me, make me toast, and mother me
GET a hubby who keeps the walls up, shovels the snow, lifts the heavy objects

WANT a youthful face with perfect makeup and no chin hairs
GET to be alive

WANT world travel
GET a great extended family and friends to visit, just a few hours away

WANT a well appointed home with fabulous art, expensive rugs, and all the little extras
GET a home with central heat, comfy chairs, and a cuddly cat

WANT great kids
GET great kids!

WANT a comfy new car with in dash GPS, heated seats, moon roof, and tinted windows
GET a pretty darned nice car with high miles that's paid for and cute to boot!

WANT hot coffee with half and half
GET hot coffee with half and half

It looks like you really have it all.

The weird random hair thing? They seem to go from zero to sixty overnight without notice. What the heck? The only thing worse than finding out one's somehow escaped my notice is having my son say, "Yeah mom, I noticed that a while ago. I was wondering when you were going to do something about it." Gee, thanks for the heads up, kid.

Good kids and hot coffee. Roof and responsible husband. Car gets you there and back. Does it ever really get better than that?
