what does wish mean to you? i have been thinking about that a lot lately. i want you to imagine that your wish/dream of a lifetime is finally coming true, and you can do ANYTHING! you can go on a vacation, meet someone famous, be something for a day etc...imagine that your one true wish/dream was coming true, and the sky's the limit. just imagine that. what would you do if you could do anything! no cost to you, the SKY's the limit. what would that feel like? what would that mean to you? what would your feelings be?
i have that opportunity at this very moment. i am planning my one true wish/dream in life. it's very hard to imagine that the sky's the limit. my feelings are overwhelmed. i am so happy it brings tears to my eyes. at night i think of my wish/dream and i just start crying, because its so hard to believe that my wish/dream is COMING TRUE! reality hasn't set in. i think about my wish/dream ALL.THE.TIME. when you can think about it all the time, that means it's THE.ONE. i am so thankful for number 1)my lord and savior jesus christ. 2)my parents, for not doing my make-a-wish when i was younger and letting me choose it myself. 3)make~a~wish for allowing me to qualify and for going to help me make my wish/dream come true. theres not one second, minute, hour, day, or moment that doesn't go by that i'm thinking about my wish/dream and there's not one second that doesn't go by that i almost start crying, because i am so grateful, thankful, and happy.
i want to end with what wish stands for. it was in one of the packets for my parents that we got from make~a~wish, and i think it sums everything up.

Wander.... Through your memories to the time you were a child. What did you love? What made your heart beat faster? Where did you dream of going? Who was your hero? What made the sun rise? What were your last thoughts when you were going to sleep? What did you dream you would one day be?

Imagine.... Imagine you have a wish. Close your eyes and experience the magic of wishing. Imagine how a wish would feel, a wish that could come true.

Stop.... and let your child do the rest. Children wish so beautifully all by themselves!

Hold.... Your child's hand and reach for the stars together. Forget adult cares and worries, thoughts of bills, hospitals, and treatment plans. Allow your child to reach out fot the wish that will come true, reach out for hope, strength, and joy!


  1. Your positive attitude is amazing. I can't wait to hear what you wish for.

  2. Make-A-Wish is an amazimg organization! My sisters and I all had the chance to participate when we were younger. My sisters wished for a family vacation to Disneyworld in Orlando and a complete bedroom makeover. I wished for a horse. Not only did I get a horse, but they provided us with a corral and shelter, a brand new saddle as well as all sorts of other tack and equipment, plus a years supply of hay and grain. It was seriously a dream come true for me! I'm excited to hear what you wish for and how it all plays out. However, if you use your wish to meet Johnny Depp, I'm going to be VERY BITTER! ;)

  3. That's amazing! do you still have your horse? LOL it's not to meet Johnny Depp ;) That's so cool. i bet it was a memory of a lifetime.

  4. That is sooooo cool Paige. After all you've been through and still have your amazing attitude, you definitely deserve this. I can't wait to find out what your big wish is....
