Sometimes it's hard not to covet. (wish for . want. what someone else has.)
I covet the handmade hand smocked silk ribbon embroidered dresses my nieces got for Christmas dresses.
I will never have them. because i have 3 girls. (my girls are recycling old dresses this year)
my sisters girls probably covet my girls sisters. one girl per family is the way it goes, except for in my little family.
I know a few people covet my baby on the way (I've been there too) .
and my herd. Who wouldn't?
I mean . who would?
sure some days, but other times they are pretty fabulous, if they are medicated, don't have homework, and are getting along.
I admit I covet. everyone covets sometime.
a steady job and no financial woes.
stupid things like smaller shoe sizes.
I covet a certain friend's holiday decor.
another friends decorating budget or vacation schedule.
everything comes with a different price though.
emotional attachments. or drains.
physical aches and pains.
some people look like they have it all, on the surface they do, but underneath it all, their life is a wreck.
some people look like they are a wreck on the surface but they are healthy and happy. all basic needs are met. they have it together. maybe they just hide it to avoid making people feel bad.
some people are amazingly self assured. and others are wildly insecure.
some people are loved and respected.
some people have style no matter what.
and others don't.
Some people have FABULOUS personalities.
and some people lack personality all together.
do they covet each other? i dunno.
does it even matter? not really.
would you admit it? what do you covet?
33 year old me covets my own 17 year old body. I covet her energy level too. and her shoe size.
