I caught a little
leprechaun, quite wise and very old and he said to me, "You have one wish,
would you like my pot of gold?"
"No thank you," was my quick reply, "But how about another... A gift that's
truly precious and esteemed above all others?"
He offered then some emeralds, rubies, sapphires, pearls and a host of other
treasures that would make your senses whirl!
As I rejected all his list his bright eyes flashed with fire and, angrily,
he said to me: "What is it you desire?"
I said: "A rainbow's far more beautiful than its' supposed treasure
and the 'rainbow' that I'm wishing for is priceless beyond measure.
"I'd like to have the dearest friends a person ever had to share in all the
good times and help me through the bad...
"To laugh and sing and joke with, love and appreciate as we live life's
greatest adventure that would certainly be great!"
"Oh, now I know you're daft!" he said as he ran off with his pot... "to
waste your wish on something you have already got!"
