What is your Holiday Wish? by Josie Riviera


“We are all capable of looking up and making a wish on a star.”- Unknown 

Wishes. Defined as a hope or desire for something you want to happen or receive. 
For those around us, we may wish them a Happy Birthday, to be well, or have safe travels. For our family the wishes may be to accomplish their dreams, to feel loved, or to know their self-worth.

For ourselves, it may be to feel appreciated at your job, to lose those five pounds gained over the holiday, or to take a dream vacation.

Then there are the bigger wishes, beginning with world peace.
Large or small, there are more wishes than stars in the sky.

As we enter the holidays, wishes take on a more innocent and magical feeling. This year we may be wishing for traditions--baking cookies with loved ones, shopping and wrapping gifts with friends, or enjoying marathon game nights.
Many of us are wishing for life o go "back to normal." While normal may be a way off, the holidays are still full of magical wishes.

Children help keep the magic alive. Their sweet faces are full of belief that wishes will come true, and their faith is pure joy.

My wish for you this season is to enjoy the simple pleasures. Take a moment, look up to the night sky, and make a wish upon a star.

Happy Holidays!
