While I was sick last week I watched the film A Little Bit of Heaven.  Although the reviews were mixed, the storyline touched me on multiple levels and I spent most of the hour and a half crying my eyes out.  Perhaps it was the cold medicine or my hormones were out of whack.  Regardless, the main character (Kate Hudson) is diagnosed with colon cancer.  A lovely friend of mine recently had a similar scare, so that may be another reason I was emotionally charged.  In the film, there’s a scene where God (played by Whoopi Goldberg) grants Hudson three wishes.  Although it’s a bit odd she doesn’t choose “to live” as one of her wishes, the overall theme that life is a gift to be celebrated in the short time we’re here definitely comes across.  Maybe if we were all privy to our general timeline like the main character was, we’d do a better job of living.

If you were granted three wishes, what would they be?
