Longing - Word of the Day

I am finally nearing the end of the "word experiment" with my sister. Today she gave me longing.

Since I am in a very good mood - I thought I would make a list of things I long for.. keep it light.. keep it simple:


1. I long for a hot dog street vendor. I LOVE me some hot dogs. I always hope to "happen" upon one.

2. I long for long flowing locks of thick hair. Instead I ended up with fine hair, that can get a little scraggly.

3. I long for a flat, toned stomach.

4. I long for chips and dip. I guess if I get the chips and dip - #3 is out the door.

5. I long for that first cup of coffee each morning.

6. I long for a really fat bank account.

7. I long for the happiness of my friends. Wait.. what I am trying to say is - I REALLY want each of my friends and family to be super happy. (remember, I am sensitive to other's energy. If they are in a good mood - then I reap the benefits!_

8. I long for spiritual maturity.

9. I long for moments in nature that take my breath away by their beauty.

10. Finally... I long for this week of words to be over. ;-)

I LOVE hotdogs. This past March, I traveled a total of six hours for a Nathans Hotdog cause I'd never had it :)

I really like this word of the day thing...this would make a cool meme for the general blogging populous. :-)

Me personally...I long for white, sandy beaches; the love of my life to come along and sweep me off my feet; and my mom's home cooking (she's long gone now, and her amazing meals with her - I didn't inherit the cooking gene). I also long to be a super-duper-rock-star blogger like YOU...ahhhhh, someday!!!

Such a good word for the day!

A few things I long for....

1. I long for peace. World Peace,Peace within my family,Peace amongst my friends.

2. I long for this journey that I am about to embark on will be a smooth one. The Journey is having the Gastric Bypass done. I am half way there in getting a surgery date!

3. I long for the day when I can finally be with the man I love. ( there are obstacles in the way right now and I know one day it will all work out )

4. I long for my oldest son to reach his goals and become the man I know he can be.

5. I long for my youngest son to get through the 8th grade. ( this one came to me moments ago when I got a phone call from the school )

Just to name a few :)

At least you got a good word today. I wanted to let you know that I tagged you on today's blog. EIGHT TO THE EIGHT TO THE EIGHT. My timing seems to be fairly good since you are finishing up with the word challenge with your sister... I know you were LONGING for a different blogging experience:-)

Living in NYC I come across hot dog vendors EVERYWHERE, and it used to be awesome! Now, it will just be sad because I can't eat them, being a born again vegetarian and all...

I long for a flat stomach too! I also love that first cup of coffee in the morning! I love those times when nature takes my breath away. I long to be less stressed and to take the time to notice those amazing nature shows! I hope you are doing great!

Really great list! I have many of the same ones you have (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) ... yep, pretty much all of them except maybe not the hot dog and the Week of Words finale!

Good list and could easily be my own... but maybe without the hotdogs.

I long for a good veggie hot dog! They can send a man to the moon but....
