Wishes ...

"W" is for Wishes ...


This week at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday we are studying the letter "W".  Oh, how I love to wish upon a shooting star!  Can we really make wishes come true?  I thought I would share with you today some cute ways to make your wishes come true, now and every day to come (at least that is what they say).

  • If you catch the time on the clock at 11:11 make a wish.
  • If you hear a bird singing in the rain, make a wish.
  • If three birds perch together on one wire, make a wish.  If you finish your wish before any of them fly away, it will come true.
  • If you find an empty bird's nest, you get a wish.  If it has part of an eggshell in it, you get two wishes.
  • At the first sign of a rainbow, make a wish.
  • When you find a four-leaf clover, pick it without breaking off any leaves, make a wish on it, and carry it with you the next 24 hours.  If any leaves break off during these 24 hours, your wish will not come true.

"There wouldn't be a sky full of stars if we were all meant
to wish on the same one."
~ Frances Clark ~

I hope you will join me today in a fun survey about wishes.  Do you have a spell to make wishes come true?  If so, please do tell us your secret in the comments section.

Not sure I believe in wishes coming true...

It is a nice thought though!

This was a fun post, Donna! Ever since childhood I've always wished on the first star I see in the sky at night and when I blow on dandelions. Happily I think some of my wishes have come true in my lifetime. :)

JDaniel and I have had a blast making wishes on dandelion this spring.

I like these 11 ideas to wish upon. The four leaves clover is new to me, so I must look for one, and wish..

I attach my wishes to every means! And then apply Faith to those wishes. If we don't believe they will come true, then why wish...
Beautiful post!

I've had wishes come true - and sometimes the unexpected ones. I made a wish a long time ago on the Wishing Steps at Blarney Castle. It was a very improbable wish at the time, but it came true years later. I loved your post!

Oh my, what a fun post to see tonight in my long overdue life of catching up! I have missed you most of all due to the sheer beauty I see on your blog and stunning photography. I am smiling becuase when I'm driving down the road with the girls and they see 12:34 on the clock they all scream "make a wish!!" :)

I always remembered the old wishbone, the four leaf clover and the birthday candles- and was always told if you told your wish it wouldn't come true... I think they're probably old wives tales, but it's always good to wish- it makes you feel good :-)
