This happy Wishes tree is on the lawn of a home of across the street from my walking path. Some who are local Facebook friends pass it each day and have perhaps contributed wishes to the branches. I finally stopped today to read and participate.
So many of the sentiments moved me as well as inspired me. They tie in beautifully with two of the questions I shared on yesterday’s blog: What moved or touched you today? What inspired you today?
I have been watching the number of wishes grow over the last week or so and it makes my heart sing… it feels like they are dancing as they flow in the breeze. I think about how many have taken the time to stop, with intention to pause for a moment and contribute. That alone inspires me.
The swinging cards are wonderful expressions of a spirit that trumps the fears, anger and even hate swirling all around us, trying to suck us in. This tree is a steadfast spirit of hope and expectation that goodness and healing are possible in our world, along with some wishes that are plain fun.
Today I added a wish. It was not hard to choose what I wanted to write, though it is only one of many, many that reside within me.
My wish: That I will look into the face of each person I see, no matter where I am, with love and respect.
I invite you to virtually extend the wishes.
Simply click on the link below and add your wish in the comment section…it can be a couple of words. You do not have to subscribe to my blog to do this. I would love to see what is shared from around the country and the world as we keep the spirit of the park neighbors expanding.
Perhaps you will choose to start your own tree or virtual invitation to those in your circles or neighborhood. What I love is that it does not leave anyone from any background out…all are welcome.
Our world sorely needs us to speak these words out loud on behalf of our highest good.
It is also not a tree or blog post limited to any certain kind of wishes so wishes for kittens or puppies are welcome, too! Share whatever it is that is from your heart and soul.
