A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes… ~by Gabby

I know, it’s the song from the movie Cinderella! Why am I writing about fairy tales again? Well, I’m not really…Let me explain. 🙂 As usual, I will make complete sense…Read on and see for yourself. For whatever reason this little tune kind of got stuck in my head. You know how those things go, at least I hope you do. 😉 I get lots of other tunes stuck in my head, believe me I do.

I listen to music a lot, I love music more than I can say. My late husband Dave was a musician, not as his paying job of course. So, he and I together listened to literally millions of songs. I can almost hear him laughing about this particular song. I found the lyrics and insisted he needed to sing me this song, in a nice way of course. It was about the lyrics, Dave of course was teasing me about wanting to watch Cinderella. He even offered to read me the fairy tale, too! His sense of humor and mine was something else when put together.It’s a nice memory to me now, Dave sang me the song, strumming his guitar…Perhaps to humor me? That may have been the case! 😉 Anyway, the lyrics to this song…Well, they are kind of magical in their own way. To prove my point here are the lyrics and you will see what I am saying. At least I hope so! Just read them , please. 🙂

A  dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep
In dreams you will lose your heartaches…Whatever you wish for you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come shining through
No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep believing
The dream that you wish will come true.
Isn’t that just the nicest thought? I think so, a bit childish? Nope, just can’t be! Maybe it is a whimsical thought for the young at heart? Or for those of us that think about and ponder on dreams and wishes…What do you kind readers think? I myself really do love pondering on these things…So does Autumn! How do you think that Twinnie can write all those lovely poems of  magic?
Who reading this believes a dream is a wish your heart makes? Come on you can share…You know what I always say, sharing is fun! 🙂 🙂

  1. The rainbow is a promise from God, not just a beautiful wish. Good post Gabby. I enjoyed that you stick up for us adults who are still in love with our dreams.

    • Yes it is and thanks for the reminder Ashleigh. 🙂 Thanks so much for enjoying this post, somebody has to stick up for us adults. We may be grown up but we still are loving our dreams! 🙂

  2. I’m so not happy that I can’t receive notice anymore whenever somone post or comment on wp! 😦

    I so love this post, and the movie as well! Awww that sound like amazing memory of your hubby, made me smile reading about it. Thats the way love is when you have that special someone, doesn’t matter what you ask even if it out the way they still do it for you! God Bless 🙂

    • PJ, wonder why you aren’t receiving notices from WP? 😦 We should ask Autumn if she knows what to do, she seems to understand all this stuff. I am so happy you liked this post and it made you smile. I know, a very good memory of Dave. 🙂 He was always doing this kind of thing, I was so blessed with him and we had so many wonderful times together for sure. God Bless you, too PJ! 🙂

      • I don’t know Gabby, it seem to keep going into my spam, so I just went through and took them all out. I hope it don’t go back into spam anymore. Its just evil 😦 I love reading your memories of him. You truly had a soulmate who completely you in everyway. I can’t wait to start back on My Love Journey, your post always touch me, because not many can have the love you and him have. I want to open people eye’s up and let them know its out there! Look at me over here taking up all your space! Lol! Over here doing essay so I can have it in before the deadline. I must admit I’m so Bless with good professor who have been working with me. I was ready to kick my classes to the curb, so many brickwalls threw at me this semester. I’m just excited it over Tuesday! 🙂 Ok enough talking! Sending love your way! God Bless 🙂

  3. That really is evil if they keep going into spam! 😦 I have had a couple of the comments go into spam before, Autumn thinks you could write to them (WP) and ask. That is so frustrating rooting through spam to find all your subscribed blogs or even comments though. You are so sweet PJ about loving to read my Dave memories, I do believe he really was my soulmate, too. I hope you find a love like that, I pray about it because you deserve the soulmate love PJ. With your Love Journey I am hoping others see they deserve that and not settle for less, because so many jerks out there. My parents had that special love, and were truly soulmates. It really can be found, I truly believe it, too! 🙂 Lol about you taking up space, I always do the same thing on your comments and also here! 🙂 I hope you can get the essay done easily, so happy to hear you were blessed with one nice professor. So glad you didn’t kick the classes to the curb PJ, I know this semester was so rough for you with the hospital time, transfusions, just not feeling well. Yay about Tuesday being the last day of the semester!! 🙂 I am proud of you for keeping on going and just sticking it all out, not everyone would be that strong, so you go girl! Sending love and hugs your way PJ! 🙂 God Bless you, too!! 🙂

  4. I like the part of the lyrics saying…
    Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come shining through
    No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep believing
    The dream that you wish will come true.

    It’s something just most of us need…especially me. 😉
    And it’s not childish at all… 🙂
    Sometimes we just need to be reminded of such. 🙂

    • Hi Nishan!
      It’s so nice to see you here for a visit! 🙂 I love this part of the lyrics, too. That is so good to hear you think it’s something most of us need, I know I sure do. Glad you feel that way, too! I was wondering if anyone would think it childish, so thank you for giving me such good feedback. 🙂 I hope all is well with you, take care and please drop by again! 🙂

  5. Loved the lyrics Gabby although going through it tears came to my eyes..
    want to hug you, it touched my soul ..
    I want to dedicate one of my fav. quotes to you and beautiful memories you shared..
    I’ll take the dream I had last night,
    And put it in my freezer,
    So someday long and far away,
    When I’m an old grey greezer,
    I’ll take it out and thaw it out,
    This lovely dream I’ve frozen,
    And boil it up and sit me down
    And dip my old cold toes in.
    ~Shel Silverstein,
    HUgs and love 🙂

    • I know Soma, aren’t those lyrics awesome? It makes me get those tears going, thinking of when Dave sang that song way before the cancer diagnosis. But I don’t want you feeling sad, but it’s nice it touched your soul and I do know what you mean. Dave pops into so many dreams when I am sleeping, that is such a blessing. Hugs and Love back to you Soma and this quote I just love it! 🙂 Thank you, hadn’t heard it before and you do find some very cool things I must say! 🙂

    • So glad you will be dropping in every now and then Nishan. 🙂 Autumn and I really did miss you!! 🙂 Glad to hear everything is good with you, everything’s fine here and no complaints out of me! 🙂
