Wishcast Wednesday

Today Jamie (of Jamie Ridler Studios) asks:

What do you wish for your relationships?

I almost decided not to answer that as the first thought that came to mind was that certain relationships are almost non existent.

But, then I realized that I do need to make several wishes.

1. I wish that my children and I could have more quality time together; that we could be in touch more often; that they would once again take part in family celebrations. I do miss their presence in my life., especially with my daughter who lives much closer!

2. I wish that the chasm that exists between my siblings and myself could be bridged, even if only a small bridge. The past cannot be forgotten, but it does need to be forgiven.

3. I wish to develop stronger friendships here. After spending 19 years in my former hometown, I need to establish deeper friendships here. This is my home now.

As Jamie says:

"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog . Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."

As Beverly wishes for herself and her relationships, so too do I wish for Beverly.

I too am glad that you joined the wishing today. Just writing or saying our wishes out loud makes them so much more real somehow. As Beverly wishes for herself, I wish for her as well.

Such important wishes ... it does seem harder as we get older (and maybe more set in our ways?) to cultivate new friendships. I struggle with this especially as I need to balance alone time with limited social interaction. And family! I have lived my entire adult life far away from my family. But now my mother is here and I do see our relationship changing in a very positive and healing manner.

As Beverly wishes for herself, so i wish for her also!

You are such an inspiring, creative soul, I know I wish I could pop by regularly just to see what you are up to!

Oh, I have to laugh - at heritage camp I assisted with the third grade group. No wonder you are ready for the summer holiday!

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also. It's hard when you are estranged from family members, especially when you want it to be different but they hold on to old resentments. I hope this year will see some healing for you.
Thank you for your comments on my blog, I look forward to your ATC's when you can get to them, I know it has been a busy time for you.
