My Wish for You

I wish you happiness,
the kind that's deep within your soul and shines through your eyes.

I wish you serenity and a sense of perspective
that calms you and lends you understanding in the most difficult times.

I wish you success in every facet of your life,
Satisfaction and contentment in everything you do.

I wish you dreams with the promise of their fulfillment,
a lifetime of extraordinary memories
and a path which leads to beautiful tomorrows.

Above all I wish you could see how big a difference you make in my life
and how grateful I am to know you.


If wishes were horses,
beggars would ride.
If turnips were watches,
I would wear one by my side.
If 'ifs' and 'ands'
Were pots and pans,
There'd be no work for tinkers' hands!

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

(Donna McElroy)

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams, you will lose your heartache
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smilin' through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you'll keep on believing
The dream that you wish for will come true

No matter how your heart is grieving
If you'll keep on believing
The dream that you wish for will come true

Quotes about Hope

Hope is a Strange Invention

(Emily Dickinson)

Hope is a strange invention--
A Patent of the Heart--
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out--

Of this electric Adjunct
Not anything is known
But its unique momentum
Embellish all we own --


(Emily Dickinson)

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches on the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops--at all

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
