Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What’s one thing you’d like to know about the future?

    Nothing actually. I kind of like not knowing. I am in that really good place right now.

  2. TheAngelForever says:

    Wow, deep question. I guess I would love a sneak peek into the future to see how my family does over the next 10-20 years while the boys are growing up.

  3. Jennifer says:

    I cannot think of anything to be honest. I think it best to have my life go as it is supposed to.

  4. Sheila R says:

    I don’t know. I guess if I ever find Mr. Right. lol

  5. Kekibird says:

    I would like to know if my son does well. We’re hitting a rough patch and it’d be nice to know we come out of it alright.

  6. Sweet Serendipity says:

    Wow, that’s a tough one. I don’t know if I’d really want to know anything.

  7. Kiki says:

    I would like to see what my son would be like in 10-20 years. I would like to see how he turns out since we are always questioning ourselves as parents. I think it would provide me some relief. I worry too much about him. I am a smothering mother. Have a wonderful weekend and take care.

  8. Smellyann says:

    I’d like to know what my career ends up being!

  9. Sues2u2 says:

    Hmmm, maybe if the bugs will ever stop trying to come into my house? lol, I think we live in one of the buggiest corners of the universe. I miss just having to deal w/ the tiny sugar ants. Next to what we’ve got here those things are nothing!

  10. m a m a j o s s says:

    How many more children will we have?

  11. Pamela Kramer says:

    If we will get out of debt!

  12. Louise says:

    nothing, i like constant surprise

  13. Jennifer @ It's A Beauty Filled Life says:

    I would love to know if my next child will be a girl! :-)

  14. Michelle says:

    Blast it all! I thought it was supposed to be an easy question!

    Ummm . . . well, I’d rather be oblivious of the pain and suffering, and knowing the joy would ruin all the surprises . . . I guess nothing.

  15. Becca says:

    I’d like to know when I will finally get married :)

  16. Deb - Mom of 3 Girls says:

    Hmm, I really don’t know. I guess I’d just like to know that my girls are happy and healthy when they grow up. :)

  17. abby @ both sides now says:

    id like to see how my kids are 10-20 years from now.

  18. Anne says:

    I have to get a little serious. My husband is on a list for a kidney transplant. I would like to know if he gets one. It would save a lot of worry.


  19. Rob says:

    I would be scared to look into the future because if I saw somwething bad I would stress about it the entire time until the event happened. So I would say nothing. I would rather live day to day.

  20. Kimberly says:

    I would like to know when my husband will get promoted to managing his own store. That would be the main one anyway. The second thing is if I ever have another child if I will finally get the girl I have always wanted.

  21. Mary says:

    I could never decide… But I guess the first thing that comes to mind are art forms from the future, and is there life on other planets?

  22. Angela says:

    I would like to know what the winning lotto numbers are. ;)

  23. Rach (Heart of Rachel) says:

    I would probably choose not to learn significant events in the future. It might just affect the present and distort my future.

  24. OTIN says:

    Wow! I might want to know how long I would live, but then again, I might not want to know!!!

  25. Quint says:

    Arrrrgh! I wan’t to know when I’m gonna catch that damned shark!

  26. IE Mommy says:

    I would like to know when the Lord will return.
    Who my future son in laws will be?
    When will I get to sleep..since it is 3:30 am!

    Come on over and answer A.M. or P.M.?

  27. East Coast Wahine says:

    I don’t wanna know!!

  28. sheila says:

    I don’t wanna know either. I worry too much when I know stuff.

  29. Abby says:

    I don’t know if there is anything that I would really want to know. I think the surprise is part of what makes life life!

  30. Valerie says:

    I would like to see if the investment I made in 2005 will ever be worth anything like they say it will.

  31. Jenni Jiggety says:

    I’d like to have a sneak peek at my boys as adults and see if they are married and what they have for jobs and if I get to be a nana!

  32. Laura says:

    I would like to just see my kids and hopefully grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I think that would be neat.

  33. Everydaywoman says:

    That my children will be HAPPY and that I’ll get to meet my grandchildren!!!

  34. Mighty M says:

    I’d like to know how all my tv shows end so I can stop watching them! Otherwise, I will just wait it all out…. Happy Friday!

  35. Drahdrah says:

    I would like to know the timing of certain events that are imminent in my life right now. It’s very hard to plan things without knowing when these 2 specific events are going to take place. Like they say, life is what happens while you’re busy planning… maybe it’s best that I try to go with the flow.

  36. Elle says:

    I wouldn’t want to know anything. I’m happier not knowing!

  37. Charlotte (Life's a Charm) says:

    births … if i’m going to have more babies.

  38. Kari A. says:

    I would like to know that my children were happy and safe.

  39. pam says:

    To know my children grow into happy capable adults.

  40. ParentingPink says:

    If I’ll have grandchildren. I know – that’s WAY OFF in the future for me – but it would be nice!

  41. Amy@Coffee with the Mrs. says:

    I would like to know when we’ll be able to sell our condo and buy a house. That would be great to know.

  42. jaime says:

    nothing that i can think of… i think it’s probably better not to know what’s going to happen. if it’s something bad, i won’t be able to do anything to change it and just spend all my time worrying about the inevitable

  43. Robin says:

    I guess that is a hard question because there are tons of things I would want to know but how would that effect the future if I knew all those things…So I guess ignorance is bliss in this case.

  44. Chrissy says:

    I honestly would like to know if I will ever have another child. We have been TTC for 3.5 years for baby 2 and still nothing. Several people keep saying ‘it will happen’ ‘you will have another’, but at this point I just want to know for certain, ya know?

    Happy Friday!

  45. Sue says:

    Power ball numbers for a 200 million jackpot! :)

  46. Rebecca R. says:

    That I will be financially stable to take care of my family

  47. Dianne says:

    That my child is happy

  48. Cathi ~ The Way I See It Too says:

    Wow! The future can really make you think but…I wouldn’t want to know about it. Many times during my life I’ve wondered but still, all said and done, as much as I loathe surprises. I wouldn’t want to know.

  49. diana/sunshine says:

    i guess it would be nice to know that my two kids marry, have a family, and live happily ever after. what!? is that too much to ask for?

  50. shelly says:

    I think I’d rather not know about the future. It would just give me something else to think & worry about. lol

  51. Heather says:

    Oh. When I really think about it, I don’t want to know. Today is enough for me!

  52. AuntieE says:

    I think I would want to know… boy I can’t think of anything. It is hard to imagine the future and I think I would be disappointed if I knew anything. I like learning a being surprise . So I do not believe I would like to know anything. Great question though:-)

  53. Megan says:

    If I’m ever going to have kids and how that’s going to come about.

  54. JamericanSpice says:

    I’d love to know if I will be able to adopt the children I desire to adopt so much.

  55. LuAnn says:

    I was about to type that I couldn’t think of anything when it came to me that I’d like to know that my 53 year old legally blind friend [who just had a complete hysterectomy (they're pretty sure they got all the cancer) and subsequently a partially-collapsed lung will get out of the hospital and back to us (where I work) before they ship her off to a nursing home because she is a ward of the state] will be happy again.

  56. MommyAmy says:

    I don’t think I’d like to learn about my family. I really don’t want to know if my kids turn out ok or whatever… I just wanna do the best job I can without knowing.

    I think I watch too much Doctor Who. Because I kinda think it’s better not knowing.

  57. angie says:

    At times I like living in the current because I want future to be suprise but I would like to know what the future of my nephews look like

  59. Amy says:

    I think I’d be too scared to find out…so nothing really.

  61. Muthering Heights says:

    I would like to know who my kids will grow in to as adults…I think it would teach me a lot about the way in which they each need to be parented!

  62. Deisgn It Chic says:

    I’d like to know when the heck will we be able to buy a house… am i too materialistic… no people, it’s called just being practical:D

    Happy Aloha Friday!

  63. CATHY PARKER/Psychic Mama says:

    I’d like to know when I’m going to join my husband on the Other Side.
