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! 🙂 🙂

Goodbye doesn’t mean Forever


Never say never

You never know so don’t say goodbye, it’s not always forever.  I like to say “later”… even if someone dies it doesn’t have to be that they are gone from us for always. We have memories, we have “the great hereafter” we have or we should have hope.

So it’s how I live these days.  I hold on to the hope that it’s not a forever goodbye.

I guess you could say I have lost many people I have loved, quite a few to death, my Dad, my late fiance, Craig he died from a brain aneurysm and that was sudden.  I think losing a loved one or “the love of your life” to death is not final, it’s just not! I refuse to believe it’s final.

Not forever

Keeping  a positive attitude helps 🙂 which is soooo easy to say, but it’s not easy, it’s really very difficult.  So I just think of it as another challenge. Hmmm… I know, that makes is sound better 😉

I remember a line from a song, “nothing lasts forever but the Earth and Sky… a song by Kansas, the song is called “Dust in the Wind“.

The Other song

Here are the lyrics for the other song, it’s Called “The Goodbye Girl”  I am not the goodbye girl, I won’t say goodbye, never, ever!!!!


Goodbye Girl

All your life you’ve waited for love to come and stay
And now that I have found you, you must not slip away
I know it’s hard believin’ the words you’ve heard before
But darlin’ you must trust them just once more… ’cause baby
Goodbye doesn’t mean forever
Let me tell you goodbye doesn’t mean
We’ll never be together again
If you wake up and I’m not there, I won’t be long away
’cause the things you do my goodbye girl
Will bring me back toyou.
I know you’ve been taken, afraid to hurt again You fight the love you feel for me instead of givin’ in But I can wait forever, a-helpin’ you to see That I was meant for you and you for me…so rememberGoodbye doesn’t mean forever
Let me tell you goodbye doesn’t mean
We’ll never be together again
Though we may be so far apart you still will have my heart
So forget your past my goodbye girl
’cause now you’re home at last.

Later

Never goodbye … just try and switch to saying “Later”… it’s easy 🙂
