Witches and Wishes

Barbara's Blog:

Throughout the month of October, many focus on the celebration of Halloween, with witches, goblins, scarecrows and  pumpkins.  It is a festive, fun time and ushers in the smells and tastes of the fall season.  It also initiates the holiday season when children begin to make their "wish lists" as stores prepare for their biggest shopping extravaganza. 

But as adults grow older, wishes from the past begin to fade and new ones take their place.  Materialism becomes less important and is replaced by wishes for family and friends.  Until a loved one becomes ill or passes on, or a disaster strikes, each day is taken for granted and never truly appreciated.

The people of South Carolina are suffering greatly in the loss of family, homes, jobs and total communities.  The devastation may take years to rebuild and some lives will never be the same.  Illness or death affects family members in the same way.  Life goes on, but will never again be the same.  Until we personally go through that dark tunnel, it is difficult to understand the pain.

"Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it" is an old saying that holds much truth.  Many have wished to win the lottery and became miserable because of it; some have wished for financial success and suffered much heartache through it; others have wished for material things, gotten them, and then discovered they did not bring happiness after all.

Let us wish for those things money cannot buy:  good health and the love of family and friends.  For without these things, material goods mean nothing.  Each day brings its own beauty and joy when looked at through the eyes of love.  Those little "witches" this Halloween will fill hearts with both.
