When You Wish Upon A Star.....

When you wish upon a star.... Makes no difference who you are... Anything your heart desires... will come to you....

      Do you believe that making a wish upon a star your wish will come true? Do you know it in your heart? I so remember hearing and singing this song in my childhood and caught myself thinking and humming it as I was folding stars from aged book pages... The lovely tune written for Walt Disney's 1040's adaption of "PINOCCHIO"... Many artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Neil Diamond, Julie Andrews, just to name a few have added their versions over the years...
      Today I wish I had a magical wand to make my family and friends wishes all come true but more realistically I will say a prayer for... Comfort on a difficult day, Smiles to appear when sadness intrudes, Rainbows to follow the clouds, and Sunsets to warm the hearts...
PS.. I love making jars filled with snow and glitter... I have folded around 60 stars from old book pages thus far to scatter around on the tables for the Moser Christmas and to be placed in between the centerpieces... Nearly all the decoration for my home as well as for the gathering have been created by re-purpose in some way, mainly using aged book pages...

You touched my heart and brought back memories such as Neil Diamond - I am still a big fan of his. I remember wishing on a star and singing that song.
