Yesterday CJ & I were walking through the streets of Sleepy Hollow, NY (Yes it is a real town & yes they do stuff for Halloween) & my A.D.D. noticed something odd. We passed by a tree with a lil strips of cloth tied to it’s branches. At first I thought it was some girl scout project or something but then I looked a lil closer. It was a “Wishing Tree”.
I have never heard or seen such a beautiful thing. The tree I believe was a Dogwood, so it was a lil short so you could easily get to the branches & low & behold I’d say there was at least 50 fabric strips all with people’s wishes, hopes & dreams on them. I, of course, had to stop & sample some of the people’s wishes.
”I want to do good in college this semester”
“I wish good health on my family & friends.”
"Let her know how much I love her."
“Please let me win the lottery.”
“I wish for him to come back to me.”
It was so sweet & heartfelt some of them. This must have been like how the girl felt in the movie “Letter to Juliet”. I loved that movie so much. It was so cute with all the letters the women wrote to Juliet & stuck in the wall hoping to find an answer. You want that lady to find her Lorenzo so badly.
Anywho…the trip to Maryland is actually back on so I will be leaving shortly from work to battle Hurricane Earl. I’ll be back on Monday. If there had been anymore strips of fabric left on that wishing tree I would have wrote:
I’m hoping!! I hope everyone has a good Labor Day Weekend & I hope Earl doesn’t mess with your plans!
P.S. I will have a giveaway when I come back! =)
P.S.S. I will be going to that concert regardless if the Mess is there or not!!
Have you ever seen a Wishing tree before? If not what would your Wish be? You can totally leave the comment as anonymous. Maybe your wish will come true.
