If you could choose to immediately gain one thing in your life, what would it be?

If you had a chance to immediately gain something new in your life, would you know what you wanted it to be or would you have to stop and think about it?

Do you think that gaining this new "thing" would change you in any way?

Money...can it really buy us happiness...
I think I have gotten smarter over the years or at least that is what I tell my
I can do a few crafts and love trying new things...
Friendship is very important to me and I have some amazing friends...
I have my kids and grandkids,friends & family...
I have faith that the sun will rise tomorrow...
I have respect for everyone's individuality...
To see into the future...I don't think I want to know what is going to happen tomorrow...Life is a surprise everyday...

My choice would be "Health"...I would love to be healthy again...that would be the one thing that I would love to have back...well that and a 25 inch waist couldn't

Smiles & Hugs...
Live With Courage...Love With Faith...Laugh With Hope...

I chose money... I have virtually everything else but am absolutely upto my eyeballs in debt. Money would really help me right now...

I already have friendship, family, respect (for myself and others), talent, faith and some wisdom... And as for seeing into the future - wouldn't life be boring if you knew what was going to happen next?!

Give me the cash! I really, REALLY need it right now! LOL

If I could have chosen 2 it would be Health and Family (mine is so small now)
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

I have family,friends,some talent,I have respect for others and for myself. I have a deep faith in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and God our Heavenly Father. I don't have much money but my needs are supplied. I don't want to see into the future for there is enough to take care of for one day. I guess there is something else I'd want and that is good health for my husband, myself and the whole family, but wisdom is what I would want the most because I feel if any one who has wisdom they could take care of all the things that one worries about every day and everyone who has wisdom would know what to do in every situation and would have the wisdom to have all that he needs.

I think mine has to be health.
I have all the stomach issues going on and depression which can be quite debilitating at times. I would love to be free from it.

Take time to recharge your batteries. It's hard to see where you're going when your lights are dim.

Money and talent would be the two I would have to pick. With money being #1 due to not having John's income any longer I have to do all the earnings now myself.. and hope I have enought to stay afloat.
Talent is something I need and fixing to learn something new.. and hope it will pan out.

Plus Right now I have family and friends, thank goodness. I know I got faith as that is what is keeping me a going.
I don't want to see in the future for it could scare me if I could. I might like what it showed. Right now my future and present is so moody that I sure coldn't handle in knowing what to do if I saw in the future.
wisdom, I'm working on that right now
so picking this wouldn't be nothing new.
respect, LOL... if someone is going to respect me or not, it by thier choice not mine.. all Ican do is be me.. and leave the rest to the person that gives it or not give it.
