TDoT(6): Something you hope you never have to do

Shoo, that's a difficult one. There are those things that are inevitable but you wishwishwish would never happen. I hope I never have bury the one's I love, but I know it has to happen at some stage. Well, no, I won't have to bury them, literally, we're of the cremation types, my family, but you know what I mean.

Hoping I don't have to do it, won't change the fact that I will. Perhaps a better hope would be to hope that I never have to say goodbye to anyone I love traumatically or tragically. Anybody who reads Family Matters (fabulous blog) will know what I mean. To die peacefully, surrounded by family and love and still graciousness, that's what I hope for. For all those I love, and me.

You ARE being good about this 30 day thing -
Well done, you!

Ja, this is a biggie - for everyone I guess.
I tend to just not think about stuff like that - you know? "if I don't think about it, it isn't there" syndrome?

Allie, I like your comments.
Shiny, this is a nice wish, but as you know, not quite to be fulfilled (except for the peaceful part, perhaps). So what my great wish was, never to become really badly guilty (a little is inevitable). Like, driving over a child, or something. Maybe if you say that clearly, it won`t happen. Don`t you think?

Oh, Allie, I'm all for head-in-the-sand syndrome. I may even be its' poster girl! x

Geli - oh I certainly hope saying it clearly makes it not happen, indeed! x
