Be careful what you wish for

Who hasn't heard that saying?!

When I was little my mom became pregnant. There was already a boy and three girls in the family, so Betty, Barb and I yearned for a baby brother. Our house was a split level, and at the top of the up stairs there hung a picture of Jesus, kneeling by a rock, praying. Every night, for nine months, Betty, Barb and I would kneel at the picture of Jesus, and pray for a baby brother. I think on Sundays we prayed more than once, because it was go to church day. There were nights Barb and I would even fall asleep, holding hands, praying for a boy!

You guessed it, we got what we "wished" for. A baby brudder! Who has become a green-eyed monster!

One year for his birthday, I told my baby brudder his gift from me would be that I wouldn't call him baby brudder anymore. I must be an Indian giver, because I have taken that gift back.

The moral? Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it, and want to send it back.

I know what you mean, but my wish had nothing to do with siblings.

I cant believe that I used to kneel and pray to a picture of one God. How times have changed...Calling him the green eyed monster is being nice, I could call him a lot more then that but I will be nice (and sometimes that is pretty hard as you know) I can still talk to many Gods and cast spells so that he gets warts where no one wants them. So that the user cant find any other people to use. But like I said I will be nice. You have said it they way it is and when you are wishing like that you are casting and sometimes casting will come back and bite you right on your pearly white cheeks... I love you little sis, witch2
