    Estrellas

    I love walking out on my porch at night and gazing up at the stars, they seem so close that I can touch them...then I find one and wish on it, sit down, have a drink and enjoy the beautiful sky

    Shooting Stars

    Last summer, in August, I spent a week in Cyprus with my friends and my sister. They have a house out there, not far from the beach, with the biggest garden I have seen in a long time (gardens are rare out there because of the heat). During the time we went was when shooting...

    Peace

    I wish on them for peace and traquility. For everyone to just stop the hurt, the pain and the unnecessary deaths there are today. I hope someday that may come true.

    Wish

    I remember as a child, when I went to my beach house for the summer, I'd wish on the first star I saw. The town that I went to was two hours from the nearest populated town, it was on the tip of an island and you could see every single star in the sky. I was...

    Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

    When I was a young girl, I never failed to wish upon a star every night. Somehow, it gave me some sort of protection I crave, knowing that someone up there is listening to my troubles and will help me get through it. I heard a story that if you wish for a 100 times, the same wish...

    Not necessarily wish,

    but it's funny...I still look up and say that little poem to myself..."star light, star bright, first star I see tonight..." That one. Ever since I'm a little girl.

    We All Should

    Wishes are dreams and dream are what makes life fun. If you can dream, you can't set goals that are worth reaching. So go out and wish on a star and then make that wish happen.

    A Little Hope

    I guess I'm still a kid at heart. When I lay outside at night and watch the stars I still wish on them. Hoping one day my wish will come true. Its just a good feeling having hope. Gives me something to look forward to. Maybe some day I will win the lotto that's one wish I make.

    I Dare To Wish

    The moments when the sky is clear and the stars are out, I allow myself to dream and wish. I feel something greater than me up above, something to send my wishes upon to carry out into the universe in hopes that one day my wish comes true. It feels simple, and child-like, and...

    Planned Wishes

    Every night that I wish I a star, I have a planned wish.  As far back as my memory goes, I have chosen one wish and continued to wish for it every night that I sent my wish to a star.  I always have kept with a wish for at the least a year.  Doing this gives me a...

    A Few Of My Wishes Have Come True...

    I've had a few wishes actually come true, although I've had a ton that didn't. I forget what, exactly, the wishes were that came true, since it was a while ago. I don't really know why they came true, and it might've been a coincidence. But I still wish on stars.

    What's the Harm In It?

    Sure I still wish on stars. Shooting stars, first star of the night, just for the heck of it stars. I've even been known to "wish to save my wish for a later wish" if I couldn't think of something to wish for at the time.
