I actually made a trip to orange county with "J" on the weekend, to visit my sister who is back from India.( for those who do not live in California, Orange county is about 65miles from where I live). It was a nice change because for the last three years everyone has always made the trip to visit me.I used a back brace which kind of harnessed me to my seat so it was not too bad. It felt just nice to give my sister a big hug.I wished I could just wipe away her illness . I am positive she is going to be well but I wish she did not have to go through the surgery and the other treatments that go along with breast cancer. I felt like the mother this time around, I want to take her under my wing, to pamper her and look after her and tell her that everything is going to be alright. I have always had a special bond with her and thats why it makes me sad.Please remember her in your prayers.She is scheduled to have her surgery by the end of the month.She has numerous tests to go through before that, so she is kind of overwhelmed with everything. I have to say that it is her positive mind and her strong faith that is going to help her through this.(And me being by her side).If I had one wish from a genie..I would wish that my sister would be healed. IF YOU HAD A WISH FROM A GENIE WHAT WOULD YOU WISH FOR?


Id it is 2:53 PM  

Can I make a dual wish?
Presuming I can...
Peace and brotherhood around the world as a 'global' wish, and
I wish family members didn't have so many miles between them.
Best wishes to your sister.

Keshi 5:36 PM

Nice to know that you were able to go ans visit your sister. It must have been nice to get out of the home and travel. Your sister must have been very happy (as happy as she can be given the circumstances) to see you.

Will definitely pray for her. Am sure that she will be fine.

Now if I had a wish from a genie, I would wish for a new genie have no wish limit :-)

Wild Reeds 3:00 AM  

Hey that is so cool. My cousin just visited me in France, from India. I know how wonderful that feels. It's also tinged with sadness knowing that in a few days they will be gone and the laughter wont resonate off the walls again.
Very cool blog.

My wish would be :
" Andaru baagundaali " (Telugu)
"Everyone should be fine."
This is what I get, when I see God first. Later, I'll start thinking about myself.

I hope your sister would have tremendous inner strength to go through all these tests and to recover soon.

Asha 12:24 PM

I wish people around the world stop killing each other and live and let live!!

Ghost Particle 12:34 PM

Divya..thank you so much.

starry nights 8:30 AM  

Jac..thank you.

Anali 5:41 PM  

I'll pray for your sister. And the one wish? That's a hard one. Only one wish leaves so much unfinished, it seems almost trivial in the greater scheme of things. And how do you define one when it comes to wish? Can the one have a few parts? I'm analyzing this way too much...

Shionge 6:42 PM  

I would that Genie be kind enough to heal your sister including wiping out all those dreadful illness too.

Give your sister a hug on my behalf too ok Ms Lalitha :) Take care.

Fuzzylogic 8:04 PM  

Your sister will certainly be in my prayers Starry.I know it's a hard journey but keep the faith,a positive attitude can be hard to find at times but she can find that strength in you and her loved ones.I'm also awfully glad to hear you are making so much progress with your health too.

dharmabum 9:52 PM  

hope ur sis is better soon.

i'm quite fascinated with california as i have a good friend there and much of what i know of america is through him :)

chandni 10:08 PM  

will definitely be prayoing for her..please pass on our good wishes to her as well.....Hope al goes well with her tests and treatment....

If I had a wish, I would just ask for health and happiness for my parents and siblings

Ajnabi 12:01 AM  

I am praying for your sister, starry. And you also trust almight God.

My wish to the genie would be to show the right way to all the ppl in the world and make them happy.

Neihal 1:59 AM  

my best wishes for your sis Starry.
Hope she gets over it soon :)
as they say, there will be always the one who ll say" I want three more wishes" I am that person :D

Sumitha 2:53 AM  

Star I will remember her in my prayer.I have heard of a story of a woman in Kerala who had cancer,dont remember which one.Doctors said that she has just 6 months more of life.This lady was so positive and kept telling herself that she is going to live and kept thinking of things she has to do in the future and kept herself busy with it reading books.After that its been 25 years or more and she still lives happy and healthy.Give your sister all support and tell her that there are many who are praying for her.God will hear to atleast one of our prayers no!

Ganesh Ranganathan 4:23 AM  

I hope your Sister gets allright...

How is your back now, starry? Are you able to walk now? I hope yourback pain gets allright too..

Orchid 9:27 AM  

That was such a heart-warmign post. Your sister must've felt really gald to have you visit her. I would se my wish for your sister as well right now.

Lisa Francisco 10:03 AM  

Why do you wear a back brace?

mystic rose 1:00 PM  

hi starry,
it s wonderful that you and your sister have each other! and i hope she will get through all this with courage and strength(its great you are with her). hugs!

Mumbai Guy 4:11 PM  

Hey Starry, Isnt Orange county the place where recent wildfire took place?

Mumbai Guy 4:11 PM  

Btw, I pray that your sister gets well soon...

Blessed 7:39 PM  

Okay I'm gonna say the first wish that came to my mind:
that my husband had a greater faith.

I know I could have said world peace, or stop the wars, stop the crime, the violence, bring the soldiers home, cure all illnesses, but my first thought was the one above.

Said a prayer for your sis right here and now.

my life.... 11:47 PM  

Lali, yr sister will be in my prayers... just hang on there da...

Princess 11:51 PM  

hi dear,

sorry for this very late reply..
I'll for sure pray for your sister.

God will be with her always. :)

And if I could wish from a genie...let me think....

I would wish for a life with success/happyness and failure/sadness in the ration of 75:25 for all people....
for without failure people will not value success. :)


pink ginger 珂琳 6:39 AM  

Do believe in miracle. Must give your sister lots of encouragement, must have will to win.
Will keep her in my prayer.

Krithika 7:05 AM

Ashish 1:48 AM  

Wish would be people do not go through the sort of suffering that diseases like cancer brings on us.

Lotus Reads 3:22 AM  

If I had one wish from a genie, I would wish good health for everyone of us...I know it sounds like I am asking for the impossible, but genies are supposed to make the impossible come true!

I will send positive, healing vibes to your sister Starry. Please continue to let us know how she is doing.
