I am having one of those ridiculously dorky moments…you know the kind when you decide to grab a quilt, put on your favorite comfy sweater and stare at the stars.
Now I am perfectly aware that the meteor shower was the previous night, and yes, I slept through it! But tonight, I don’t know, there is something about tonight. As I was gazing at the stars I started singing that incredibly sad country song….
“alone again tonight without someone to love, the Stars are shining bright so one more wish goes up….”
Oh we’ve all sang that song while staring at the stars at some point in our lives.
I’m going to let you in on a secret…something I have never ever told anyone!
I have never made a wish on a falling star.
I always felt that it would be selfish of me to make a wish when I had everything I had ever desired. So I always graciously whispered to myself the person I wanted to give my wish to and hoped all of their wishes would eventually come true, as mine already had.
I was actually talking to God and I giggled as I was telling Him that maybe I should have kept all of those wishes for myself.
Then this happened….
I looked up at just the right time to see two falling stars!!!
For the first time ever I kept a wish. I was also able to whisper a name of the person I wanted to give the other wish to.
“I guess I must be wishing on someone else’s star……”
Not tonight! I believe that one was meant for me!
