Make A Wish…
Today’s the day that most middle-age women and men dread… it’s another birthday for me today. Yep, another year older and definitely a bit wiser I think.
I’m fully gonna embrace today. Why? Because this birthday’s different. This birthday, this moment, right now… it really counts.
And I’m gonna make a wish.
I’m talking a wish that I really mean. Eyes scrunched, finger-crossed, hope against hope, throw that coin in the fountain kindof wish you used to make when you were young. Remember when you were young the power you had in your wish to come true? Right now, that’s what I got.
I have never, ever, ever wanted a birthday wish to come true so badly in my life. There better be magic in those candles tonight, because when I blow, I am wishing the cancer that came into our lives to exit … stat!
No more ice packs to soothe the pain, no more painful treatments and doctor appointments, no more pain, tears or upset tummys. No more cancer. That’s what I wish for today. That’s all we want… all we need. For our little family to heal and get back to life as normal. When those candles are lit on my cake tonight (and no… I am NOT telling you how many will be ablaze), my eyes will be scrunched, my fingers crossed and I will blow them out with all of the might I have left and make the most important wish of my life.
But before I do, may I ask you a favor?
In your home, could you light a candle and make a wish for Jackson that this uninvited disease leaves his body?
Then blow the candle out as hard as you can.
I know I will be!
Here’s to wishes coming true…
