If Only 22 February 2017



If only they would just do the simple things I ask, then they would be done. If only respect was practiced, then there wouldn’t be so much rudeness. If only a day had thirty hours, then I wouldn’t run out of time to get things done.

If only I could “think-cook” supper, then it would always be ready when I get home. If only I could have twenty-five horses to teach with, then my students would learn respect, responsibility and how to treat others, and they’d be outside. dscn0326

If only there were more books in the Harry Potter series, then I could read them. If only there were a barista outside my window, then I could have a mocha during my plan time. If only politicians were limited on how many ads they could run, then I wouldn’t be stuck with all their lame commercials.



If only the moon shone bright every morning at four, then I could see the road better when I run. If only skunks weren’t so stinky and full of rabies, then I might think they were cute. If only I had a lighthouse on our farm, then I’d have a great studio to write in and look out of. Bonus: I could warn any ships about rocky shores.
