When I was in grade 5, my parents seperated. It was a hard time for my entire family. I remember being driven home by a friends parents one night, and I was looking up at the starry sky when I saw a shooting star. I vividly remember wishing that my parents would get back together. They did, and recently celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary. My wish came true.
When I was in my late teens, I wished for a chance with my husband and I got it.
When I was in my mid twenties, I wished and prayed that my Nanny (great-grandmother) would live long enough to watch me walk down the isle. She was 95. I then wished and prayed that she would survive to see our baby born. And she did. Five generations of women.
I'm a believer in the power of wishes. I have proof that they work. So keep wishing, because they might just come true.
