Wishes


As it is my birthday week, I found this and I'd like to share it with you.


You are never given a wish
without also being given
the power to make it true.

You may have to work for it,
however.

Awesome. Thanks and happy Birthday Week!

Is that a Renoir print above? It looks like one I used to have (and possibly still do somewhere).

I really like this new layout! It's refreshing and spring like, easy on the eyes too! Happy Birthday!

Bish Denham said...

I love the quote. It is so true!

Piedmont Writer said...

Terry -- Thank you. And yes, it is Renoir, good eye.

Karen -- Thank you. Anything to do with the ocean.

Bish -- Thank you. That's one of my all time favorite books.

Shelley Sly said...

Nice quote. I certainly agree with its message. Have a wonderful birthday, my friend!

Happy Birthday! I love the Renoir! I wish I were in a pretty dress on a sunlit lake right now.

Piedmont Writer said...

Shelley -- Have a great time wherever it is you're going!

Christine -- Thank you. Me too!

My wish last year was to land an agent. Apparently I wasn't specific about the deadline for that to happen. Come to think about it, I didn't specify the agent, either. But I agree with you. Obviously it's in my power for that to happen.

Happy Birthday!

Oh, this is beautiful, and something I so needed to read tonight! I hope you have a wonderful birthday (and all of your wishes come true)!

So true. And everything we work for, really wish into reality through effort and dedication, is an invaluable gift to ourselves.

Thinking of you!

Great quote, beautiful painting, and Happy Upcoming Birthday. Hope your week is big and fun.

You're just trying to increase your cyberpresents by reminding us every day your birthday looms ever closer. Shame on you.

The basis and truth of a wish, however, is that we often wish for things we cannot have without divine intervention. Like Ryan Reynolds dipped in chocolate. With sprinkles.

Rena said...
