Make A Wish!

Life is truly a journey back to love.  It is about removing everything in your way and returning to a place of wholeness and peace.  I got to spend some time with the most beautiful four-year-old boy yesterday.  Do you ever notice how children are just balls of light bursting with energy, reminding us where we came from, and what we have forgotten?  In a few short hours, Jake reminded me how endless love is.  That no matter how full your heart feels there is always room for more.  He started talking about "wishing wells" and making wishes and on our way back to my home, his dad and I brought him to a nearby fountain.  He was busy gathering up as many pennies as he could find maybe to increase the odds of his wish being granted or maybe for the sheer fun of it.  I, on the other hand, felt like time froze for a moment as gratitude overcame me when I was reminded how magically so many of my prayers have already been answered.  You do not always get what you ask for but you do always get what you need.  Trust that life is always in the right and in the meantime; make a wish!
