Make a wish 11:11

My daughter sent me a message today that read:

Make a wish

11:11

So I did.

Sadly, the wish did not come true.

What it did make me do was remember the sweet innocence of childhood. My mother and I finding dandelions and making wishes together.

Decades on, my daughter and I making wishes together.

Cherish childhood memories; they are special.

  1. So true. How quickly we forgot, and then how quickly we remember when something triggers our memory. I have come to appreciate the power of memory and shared experiences more and more as our son gets older and hope to always remember them.

  2. I love when my clock says 11:11 or 5:55 or 1:23 or any other fun number combination. I didn’t know you could make a wish at a time like this. I seem to always look at my watch on these wonderful times.

    Loved the connection between your daughter’s text, your wish today with her, and your wish alongside your mom. Beautiful.

  3. I am reading Granted by John David Anderson. It is about a fairy and talks a lot at the beginning about things that grant wished, like eyelashes and dandelions. It is also about the loss of magic in the world. I love that you and your daughter still believe!
