ABC Wednesday - W is for Wishes

It is time once again to focus on the letter of the week at ABC Wednesday.
This week's letter is W - W is for Wishes.
We all make wishes - whether it is to:
* wish someone well for a birthday or anniversary,
* wish upon a star,

*share a wishbone and make a wish,

*throw pennies in a wishing well to make wishes or,

* just hope that all will be well.
Wishing always has an element of hope and trust that the best will happen.
A favourite meme of mine, that offers support in the blogging community is "Wishcast Wednesday". Each week a question is posed and all are invited to respond to that question. Then comes the support as other wishcasters offer support of one's wish.

Here are some quotes about wishing:
You must be the change you wish to see in the world. Mohandas Gandhi
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen. Michael Jordan
We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish. Tony Robbins
Be as you wish to seem. Socrates
If you wish to be a writer [or artist for that matter] , write. Epictetus

Nice choice. It makes me think of Disney's, " When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, anything your heart desires will come to you."

And the lesson learned is that most times making wishes come true is up to us.....
