My first wish is to remain fit and healthy I’ve no desire to be famous or wealthy With good health then you are truly rich I hope my wish does not sound too kitsch! How I wish that my tummy was flat It’s humongous with rolls of pink fat It reminds me of a huge wobbly jelly I’d dearly love to get rid of my belly! My greatest wish is to be a grandma It’s a shame that my son lives so far A grandchild would be a dream come true I could have fun as many grandma's do!

The middle poem is somewhat tongue in cheek I did want some humour in the poem:-) hugs Jan xx

With the granting of the first two wishes, you'll be fit and trim, but when you receive the third you'll be surrendering your heart. A good mix of emotions, Jan.

You don't have a Grandma face yet, jan, so you don't qualify :) . I can relate to the tummy thing, I just say I'm built for comfort, not speed. Good luck in the contest. Viv x

It is a challenge for Lady Luck to consider your wishes when everyone else is wishing to win the $1.6 BILLION dollar lottery, but, "time is of the essence"! Bonne chance! Aloha! Rico

- With good health then you're truly rich ... that's true and an important wish, Jan - Your tummy is definitely like other tummy ... besides your air problems ... which sometimes can certainly be painful :) - One day, the grandchildren will come ... I think you will be a wonderful ... (and funny) grandmother :) - Luck in the contest :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Thanks Line to be a grandmother one day is my greatest wish and the middle poem is somewhat poetic licence:-) hugs Jan xx

Jan, may I join you in the first two wishes? You have expressed the wishes many of us have and you wrote it with flair. I have been dieting to see if weight loss will help my back problems. Also, just found an old photo in which my stomach is flat as can be. Weighed less than 100 pounds for a long time. Now I'd be happy with 110. Yikes! Sending winning wishes to you for the contest, dear. (My AOL email is inaccessible. AOL is having problems. Don't know when they'll fix it. Hugs, CD
