Wishing Casting Wednesday

 It's been quite a while since I
participated in Jamie Ridler's
'Wishcasting Wednesday'.
I'm not really sure why except
that I just fell out of practice.
You know those
moments when life steps in
and sort of disrupts your routine
and then it's hard to pick up
the tempo again?
Today's question drew me back
'How do you wish to bloom?'
Perhaps it has to do with my
love of gardening or the fact that
everything around me seems
to be bursting into bloom,

but it spoke to my heart
so today I step back into
allowing myself to dream and wish!
 I wish to bloom and not
be hesitant about showing
my special colors.
I wish to open up just as the
beautiful spring blossoms
all around me, to share
the best of me,
the eye catching, colorful
parts that have been
I wish to release my sweet
fragrance for all to enjoy,
to share the gifts
God has blessed me with
and by doing so to
encourage those around me
to do the same.
