You hear this being said all the time. Who hasn’t made a thousand wishes? from blowing out birthday candles, to throwing pennies in a fountain or wishing on a star. These days I tend to wish on a star for things like ‘Please look after my friend who has Cancer, or ‘Keep my family safe’, or good health etc..
When you’re twenty you are invincible, you think you know it all, when you’re forty that starts to waiver a bit, and going towards sixty you know darned well you know very little about not very much!. These days I would not wish to be slimmer, incase I got some awful disease. I don’t wish to win the lottery, money like that usually ruins people in the end. I do thank my lucky starts for having enough. Enough good friends that my house is too small to fit them all in, enough food, enough money to enjoy life but not too much to turn my head. The one thing that is priceless and money can’t buy is good health, when I was young and my wonderful late Mum used to say this to me, I didn’t really get it, I do now. She would say ‘If your have your health, you have everything’, and how right she was.
So use your wishes wisely, treasure the little things, the ordinary miracles all around you every day and keep faith that everything will be alright in the end.
