Wishful Thinking

Ever wish you could really focus, listen intently, memorize a line, a verse, recite a poem or remember a phone number?

Ever wish you could honor a life, act on their behalf, take up a cause, pay it forward, pay a debt you can never repay?

Ever wish you could get back in touch, lose your pride, shake expectations for others, be forgiven, be accepted by those you love?

Ever wish you could be content, truly, appreciate your life, your God, your family, your friends, your neighbors, those you can count on?

Ever wish you could be a first responder, or help those unable to help themselves, making all the difference for another?

Ever wish for others to realize you’ve changed, grown, matured, evolved with knowledge, beliefs and self-driven values well equipped for life?

Ever wish for more time, a chance for more treasured moments, wonder if you would have changed a thing, and if so, what, and where would you be?

Ever wish upon a star with all your might, pray to God, spilling words from your heart, praying for courage, strength, and wisdom to do what’s right?

Let’s strive to focus, honor life, lose pride, be content, help others, accept change, treasure moments, exude wisdom, and importantly, share love.

Sweet Sarah Jean

Your face was so fair.  Your hair dark as it dared.  Your eyes were so blue.  We knew you hung the moon! Sweet treasure of mine.  You hold the key with just your smile.  Your hopes and dreams will keep for a while! Sweet Sarah Jean, there’s a world for you to see!  There’s a sun and a moon, mountains a mile high, rivers that run deep and wide, and there’s stars in the sky!

There’s a time for a friend, one to trust and depend.  Be loyal and steadfast, especially within! Sweet treasure of mine.  You hold the key with just your smile.  Your hopes and dreams will keep for a while! Sweet Sarah Jean, there’s a world for you to see!  There’s a sun and a moon, mountains a mile high, rivers that run deep and wide, and there’s stars in the sky!

If you wander don’t stay.  Take the path narrow and straight.  Run to begin with your back to the wind! Sweet treasure of mine.  You hold the key with just your smile.  Your hopes and dreams will keep for a while! Sweet Sarah Jean, there’s a world for you to see!  There’s a sun and a moon, mountains a mile high, rivers that run deep and wide, and there’s stars in the sky!
