We wish wishes all year long, yet there is something about the holidays that have even more people wishing than normal. We wish we could somehow be in multiple places at once, and share adventures and fun with all of our loved ones. We wish to see children light up with excitement as they wish and dream. Sometimes making the wish is just as exciting, as I think of my daughter blowing on dandelions that have gone to seed. Each of those seeds is a wish she has made floating on air.
UPS Is Helping Grant Wishes For Communities Or Families In Need #WishesDelivered
Some you can wrap wishes in a box and mail them to your friend or family. I picked up a special present for my dad’s upcoming birthday that I know he is wishing for. It’s a warm and fuzzy throw blanket for the couch, shh don’t tell him! My daughter picked it out just for him knowing he easily gets cold lately.
Other wishes are more difficult as we wish for our friend to beat cancer or our sister to be able to find a better job. These wishes can be a little bit harder to make come true. As much as I would like to wave my fairy godmother wand, some wishes take a bit more work, patience or love to grant. When you help, it feels like you are wrapping that warm and cozy blanket around someone who needs it. Maybe you are already working towards your own project that is helping grant someone’s wishes, or maybe you would like to help.
