Last spring children made wishes and hung them onto a tree on the playground at school. Wishes are important. The tradition of a Wishtree is worldwide. We were excited to make our very own. Everyday those wishes would flutter, and smile back at children.

Fall is beautiful in New England. The wishes kept hanging on tight. They would not be outdone by the colorful leaves.
In winter the wishes, albeit somewhat faded, look bright against the snow. They dance and play. Children smile.

Perhaps Cinderella said it best, “A dream is a wish your heart makes.”
