Make a wish!


My son was helping with gardening. He picked a flower, ran inside and handed it over to me. I took it from him and exclaimed it was a beautiful flower. He asked me to hold it in my hands, close my eyes and make a wish. Someone would hear it and know about it and give me my wish. (Thank you Kindergarten teacher!) I held the flower and made my wish.

Then he ran outside and came back with a couple more. Take a picture take a picture for Facebook he exclaimed. I winced and lamented the grip social media was having on him and started thinking of remedial measures too. Then he continued “ Take a picture so everyone on Facebook can see the flowers and make a wish.” Sigh. May your innocence stay fresh long after the flowers have wilted.
