Wishes are funny things. They come in unninvited, sit on your bed and refuse to leave. Wishes are like fluttering birds that distract you and make you dizzy. They start quite small and grow very big. They feed on every sigh then fall asleep on your eyelashes. They are invisible but you can touch them. They don't speak but you can hear them. They'll make you cry and drink your tears. Wishes travel alone or in large numbers.  Wishes have magic powers that can make you behave in unexpected ways. Wishes perch on your shoulder and are constant companions. They will lift your spirit or bring it crashing down. You will never know where wishes come from or why they choose your company, but be aware! your life won't be the same once they make your heart their home...

Albert Schweitzer said "In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit" I thank you all!
