Wishcasting Wednesday




It is that time of the week when Jamie Ridler asks a question that always resonates!

Where Do You Wish to Send Some Love?


This week I read an article on the Dalai Lama who will be coming to Canada this fall. It struck me that his philosophy can simply be stated as "love your neighbour as yourself" .
As he says:

"I believe that at every level of soeciety - familial, tribal, national and international - the key to a happier and more successful world is the growth of compassion."


So my wish is to send love to all corners of the world, so that love and compassion can fill every heart and reach every person, so that we can come together in peace. Yes, a utopian dream but one so needed in this world of war, disease and upheaval.

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."

This is my Mom's birthday. For August Break I had this post but it got deleted - I am adding it so it does not get lost!
August 11 and 12 - Days 11 and 12 August Break
August 11th and 12th - Days 11 and 12 of the August Break (Both days are being combined) Who I am and Who I love are so intertwined and they all come back to my Mom.  August 11th would have been her 81st birthday.
My Mother was and is my role model - she is the inspiration for the woman and mother I have become. So, I am a daughter and a mother.

Compassion is something our society sometimes lacks so deeply. Much wisdom here.
