Wishes for my Friends

by Sherry Riter in Friend,Motivation,Other  


Wishes are things that we hope or desire to come true.

At birthday celebrations, we blow out the candles on the cake and “make a wish.”

When we find four leaf clovers, we are said to suddenly be lucky and should “make a wish.”

After cooking and deboning a turkey, we break the wishbone and “make a wish.”

Finding a dandelion and blowing the clocks into the wind to “make a wish.”

In the big night sky upon seeing a shooting star we “make a wish.”

All of these wishes made are hopes for good fortune and happiness. In a small way, they continue our hope for the goodness and happiness we all seek in our lives. Keeping with that spirit today…

“This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,


smiles when sadness intrudes,
rainbows to follow the clouds,


laughter to kiss your lips,
sunsets to warm your heart,
hugs when spirits sag,


beauty for your eyes to see,
friendships to brighten your being,
faith so that you can believe,


confidence for when you doubt,
courage to know yourself,

courage to know yourself

patience to accept the truth,
love to complete your life.


Thank you for all your wonderful and often encouraging comments. I am thankful for your friendship and enjoy having you in my life.
