Waiting for meteors....give thanks upon a star

Here I am, 12:45 am, waiting for the meteor shower.
I have never seen one before so I'm pretty excited. I'm not really sure what to expect.
I hope to see something soon, because even though I would love to see this thing, I'm pretty ready to go to bed too.
Sad right? I guess it's one of those signs that you are getting older.
The giddy child-like anticipation of seeing something streak across the sky is still there but not quite as strong as it used to be.

I loved wishing on shooting stars as a kid.
It seems like there was always something to wish for.
A new toy, the cute boy in my class, whatever popped in my head at the moment.
I always came up with something, even if I had to think about it for a minute.
Tonight is different though.
I don't know what to wish for & according to the weatherman, it's possible that I could have a chance at wishing over 80 times!
Not knowing what to wish for is a good sign though, I think.
I take it to mean that I am content with my life & I truly am.
I have an amazing husband who is also my best friend. I have a fantastic family. The freedom to be a stay-at-home wife. We have been blessed with a wonderful church & great friends. Our business is thriving.
God has truly blessed us in so many ways.
So tonight, Maybe instead of wishing....
I will give thanks for something I already have.

I know I can find 80 things to be thankful for.

Aww! Great post Pip! :)

I've only seen two shooting stars in my life. I'm a city girl. I didn't stay up late last night for the shower because I didn't think I'd be able to see it anyway. Too many lights here. I hope you saw something good!
