I Wish I Could Walk on Water

What happens when you get what you ask for? I have to admit that, quite a lot of the time, I am more enamored with the getting than the use of whatever I am after. I can remember a time when I bugged my parents unmercifully for a BB gun. I must have begged for a year for that stupid gun. Since we did not have a lot of extra cash in those days, if my parents laid out cold, hard cash for something, you had better be prepared to use it until it was plain worn out! After months and months of a nearly constant begging, I finally got a brand new BB gun! I was overjoyed! I could not believe my good luck after only a year of groveling, and I treasured that BB gun - for about a week. Before I got what I asked for, it was all I could think about. After I got it, I lost interest in it pretty quickly - amazingly quickly! Before I got it, it was my hearts desire. After it was mine, well, my heart moved on. Granted, I was pretty young then and I hope I have matured a bit since then, but I still ask myself How does one go about being truly thankful once we get what we ask for? (Permalink)
