Some days -- like today -- the wishes come thick and fast, large white clouds across the blue of my skyline.
I wish I could create something, anything, that would make people smile and go on their way with their heart a little lighter.
I wish I saved my best smiles and frowned less for the people I care about most, instead of offering the smiles, out of politeness, to people who don't know me as well or care as much.
I wish I had the courage to wear quirky things in spite of what fashion says.
I wish I could string words together so the sentences would make someone's heart skip a beat or their breath catch in their throat.
I wish I'd remember more often to go outside and kick a ball around with my brother.
I wish I could see the storybook elements in my own life instead of assuming that other people's worlds are more fairytale than my own.
I wish I had never wasted a minute of what God has been doing in my life so far.
I wonder: will Heaven be the ultimate fulfillment of our unsated longings, or will they perhaps be swallowed up in a greater, overwhelming, glorious fulfillment unlike anything we've ever imagined?
Tegan -- your comment was such a delight! I love you, too, precious friend!

Staish -- AAAhaha!! I'll be sure to tell Lauren to bite me sometime in the future. ;)
Aunty Nell -- hee! Thanks :).
Celeste -- so glad it was a blessing! *hugs* [ps. where did your blog disappear to?]
