What would I like?

My husband asked me last night what I wanted for my birthday. I didn't have a good answer.

Well, sure, there are plenty of things I would love that are totally not practical to ask for in any way whatsoever.

I would love one of these new light spectrum cameras. It would be fantastic to be able to refocus after taking pictures. And it's red. Everything's better in red.

I would love a Droid tablet. Not because I need one, but because they're cool and I would probably use it. Between my Droid phone, laptop, iPod and Kindle, there's really nothing I need a tablet for. But it would be neat.

I would love to have my diamonds back. Or my opals. Both, really. They were stolen out of our house about a year ago and I really miss them.

I would love to have another baby. Go ahead and tell me I'm crazy. Go on. But it's true. Unfortunately, we have to figure out the whole insurance maze before we can venture there. Having a baby is expensive.

I would love to adopt a baby. Yep, even crazier. Also even more expensive.

I have always wanted a minivan. I drove my mom's in college and loved it. It would be nice for traveling and for hauling middle schoolers around. It would be a great car to grow into. But a minivan is about as much in the budget as diamonds and opals.

I feel like there are a million things I've thought to myself recently, "I should ask for that for my birthday or Christmas," but I can't remember what any of them are. Half them are probably things I actually want for Gavrel, and I don't think that counts for birthdays.

No, the best suggestion I could come up with on the spot was a pair of red TOMS shoes. Not because I need any shoes. But their one-for-one model is cool, and they're red! Everything is better in red.

Really, there's not much I need. I'm living in twice as much space as I was a year ago. I'm able to stay home with my son. I have very lovey puppies. My son is healthy and beautiful. My husband is sweet, attentive, and way better to me than I'll ever deserve. I have good friends, a great church, and an amazing, incredible, indescribable God. Life is pretty good.

So, I'll probably continue to wrack my brain for something good. But even if I don't find something, it'll all be ok.
