Request Granted, Ouch!

Request Granted, Ouch!

Since you’ve lived this long I’m sure you are aware that some things in life are irreversible. For example, a haircut, an amputation, an injury, an injection, a death, an accident, and these are just a few. But what about Requests, are they irreversible? They are if you’re at a fast food restaurant.

What about when you make a request to an unseen force? Do you really think about the implications? I encourage you to read this thriller before making your next serious request to your fairy god-mother, god-father, or your Higher Power.

The blissful couple sat at the table in their humble clean little home. The ambiance is set for peaceful and romantic; just for the two of them. This is not just another quiet celebration. This one is spectacular. It is their 40th wedding anniversary, and incidentally, it is also their 60th birthday. Yes, the same birth date. What a fantastic set of events rolled up in one!

They enjoy the well planned dinner and sit to reminisce the forty years of marriage with its ups and downs. They laugh, they cry, they smile, and share the twinkle in their eyes.

Suddenly there’s a ‘poof’ sound and right before their eyes appears a fairy god-mother. She compliments the couple for their stay-togetherness through the years. She then tells them that she is there to grant them each just one request. The couple is ecstatic!

But the fairy god-mother warns them: Be very cautious on your request, you only get one and it is irreversible!

After some time of serious thought, the wife says she’s ready. The wife is reminded that the request is irreversible. She makes her request: Travel Tickets for 2 on a 5-Day Caribbean Cruise fully paid including lodging, flight, meals, car rental, and extra cash to enjoy with her husband. Then ‘poof’ the travel tickets and a stack of cash appear at the table. The wife is very pleased.

Wow, says the husband, I’m ready! The fairy god-mother reminds him the request is irreversible. He makes his request: A wife that’s 30 years younger than me and will please me. Then ‘poof’, he is now 90 years old. Ouch!

What about you, do you really sit down and make a list of pros and cons about a serious request to your unseen force, god-mother, god-father, or Higher Power? Do you include others in your plans? While you’re working on your list, remember that some things in life are irreversible. So think before you leap.
