Make a wish!


Jamie's question this week for Wishcasting Wednesday is oh so appropriate as we enter the holiday season. I feel like we are right on the edge of all of the thrills that go with these 2 months that just seem to fly by. She asks..."What do you wish to enjoy?" I wish to enjoy all of the passing moments of happiness and joy in my life...like this adorable creature growing into a DOG! He has doubled in size and weight over the last couple of months, and he no longer has "puppy breath". I have found a few of his baby teeth around the house and he has a Super Bark like Bolt, (if you've ever seen the movie.) LOUD. Already. This was his first day going to the beach. At least he still likes riding in his basket...my sweet little pudding pop! Whoever called him a "runt" is going to be proven wrong!


He's not the only one who is growing by leaps and bounds. Sometimes a moment will freeze for me and I will look at my daughter and I just cannot believe how big she is! Not only in height, but she is smart and witty and so very funny and strong-willed and determined and beyond creative! There are other times when I look at her profile, when we are snuggled in her bed, and I can still see my little, baby girl..who still wants to hold my hand, who wants me to carry her. Oh, how I want to hang onto Now. The seasons are coming quickly, but this moment is the one where I realize it, the one right before I have to give in ...that's what I want to hold onto.
I wish to enjoy these fleeting moments of our happy everyday life!

What do you wish to enjoy?

  4. Gosh I feel the same about my son. When he's sleeping I still see that baby too. What fun to have a puppy bouncing around the house. Does the tooth fairy come to visit dogs too? She came to our house twice last week! May your wonderful wishes all come true!

  12. Yes...yes...being present and mindful. I think all wishing is like that....at least that is how I see it. The wish allows me to carve out reality...makes me look for the wish to happen and I feel ALIVE. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!
