When I was a little girl, I wished on stars all the time. Lying in bed, looking out my window... sometimes lying in the grass outside on a summer night just as the stars were first blinking. I wish I may, I wish I might... It was fantastic and hopeful and sent me to sleep with a new excitement for the next day.
As grown-up girl, I find I still wish on stars... but as an afterthought. Isn't that sad? I was such a happy kid. In recent years, I have increasingly yearned to be that person again. Knowing that my life was much easier when I was that little girl and wishing again for a way to get back to that place of more hopeful thought, a Wishcasting Wednesday post from Jamie Ridler Studios caught my eye.
So beginning this week, I am casting my wishes upon the waters. They will come true... they always do... I just have to make sure that I have the courage to wish them in the first place.
This week I am wishing for a renewal of spirit and a measure of grace. That's a good start, don't you think?
