Do you remember when you were little and you were seated in front of your birthday cake at your party? Your friends clad in party dresses and paper hats sat in a circle and sang Happy Birthday at the top of their lungs. It was your big moment. You'd close your eyes but you could still see the warm glow of the candle. Everyone waited anxiously as you drew in the deepest breath you could imagine. Your cheeks expanded with air and your head filled with thoughts of all of the things you could wish for. And in an instant, you opened your eyes and puff! You blew out your candle and sent your wishes into Dreamland.
I have been doing a lot of wishing this week. And like the best of birthday wishes, I'm going to keep them a secret until they come true. Wouldn't it be great if all it really took to make your wishes come true would be to blow out a candle?!?! Or scatter the petals of a dandelion?
A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep.... I hope all of your wishes and dreams come true!!
