My children will fall into the category of happy, I hope
And I don't really give a shit if they believe in God or gods, if they marry, if they are feminists or Jews, vegetarians or republicans, acne ridden, curly headed, tall, thin, simple, shy, college educated, talented, if they're a little ostentatious, a little silly...
I wish them sweetness,
I wish them courage,
I wish that one day they will think back to their earliest memories and feel the same warmth they felt then, a little nostalgic pain in their chests for something that maybe one day they would like to repeat for their kids, if they choose to have any. I wish that one day they will consider doing something amazing with their lives, feel like it's possible, feel like their mother will always be there for them even if they don't succeed. I wish that one day they will ask me what I used to want to be when I grew up, and then discover that one can still find satisfaction even when all of one's dreams don't come true. I wish that they will search for God, not find an answer, and be okay with it. I wish that they will search for love, maybe find an answer, and be okay with it either way. I wish that they will have fat days and sad days, bad hair days and lonely days, and that all of these days will be outnumbered by the good ones. I wish that sometimes they will want things so loudly that they will swear the whole world can hear it.
In any case, I wish that they will fall into the category of happy,
and that's really all I can ever ask for.
