Three Wishes And A Prayer...

I was searching for images of
wish boxes to post...
{one of my ideas for you!}
Of course, the best one I found was
taken by
Corey at
I can't ever just look at her images.
I must read the post that goes with it.
Her post was 2 years ago titled
It was about her Dad who she loves
and misses every single day....
It was about three wishes...
I smiled.
I moved over to her post today.
It is an image
of her Dad's closet....
I read it & I cried.
I understand first hand...
I want to comfort her
but don't know how.
So I prayed.
I prayed that Corey will be strong.
I prayed that she knows how loved
She is....
I prayed that she remembers that
it is a cut that makes
one grow.
Grow into beautiful things,
like her story about cutting


So I pray she has a safe journey Home

to French Husband~

  17. Hi Janet. I lost my father less than a year before Corey traveled home for months to be near her dying father. Her thoughts were so wonderful and comforting as she traveled that road. Thank you for your lovely post. Trish
