a few weeks ago, my 6 year old SG (6 years old today, actually) threw a penny in the fountain on the town green.
"whatdya ask for?" i probed.
"fluff," she answered matter-of-factly.
"fluff," i repeated.
later that evening i trucked over to the stop & shop and bought a tub of fluff. the next day i made her a soy butter and fluff sandwich and sent her off to school.
she came home elated, all teeth and cheeks, "mommy! mommy! my wish came true! i had a fluff sandwich in my lunchbox today!"
i didn't say anything else about it, just smiled and winked. i want her figure out on her own how her power works, how by sharing her wishes, she's helping to make them come true. a little example of the way the universe conspires to help her along the way.
wishes are beautiful things. but if we keep our wishes a secret, how will they every come true? most wishes require other people's participation. we all have wishes, we all have dreams, we all have goals. no need to be shy about it. this is our humanness in action - by nature we are dreamers, we are doers. so why deny ourselves by not sharing our dreams? scream it out loud, i say. why not? let family and friends know what we want to do, where we want to go, who we want to be. b/c then, they can help us. they can improve our chances of bringing our wishes to life.
just today, my son XG ran by the fountain and tossed in a penny.
"whatdya ask for, big man?" i probed.
"a donkey tree," he sputtered.
...good luck with that one, kid.
peace, love, gratitude,
please share this if you like it! :-)
