wish! {out loud}

Hey ya'll,

It's Sunday!! Last week, I learned about a very cool idea from Robin @ fly far.fly free that she and her bloggy friends Krystina @ Cup A Hot Chocolate and Ashley @ Chickadette created to promote wishes and helping other people achieve their wishes when possible! It is such a cool idea (you can read the original post here). I really feel like sometimes you have to put what you need out there and be open to what can happen if you trust and believe.

Since this is my first wish....I am going big...really BIG! As some of you know, my Mom is battling lung cancer right now and is fighting for her life. She has worked hard her whole life and the past couple of years have been extremely hard on her...and now this, this devastating diagnosis 2 days before her 50th birthday. It's not fair! I know that is a 2 year old thing to do...throw a temper tantrum, which is what I want to do when I see her in pain, getting tired, sleeping more than she used to, not eating...etc. My Mom is the best person that I know and has such strength, she shouldn't have to be going through this.

But, she is...and it sucks. It sucks for everyone that has been touched by cancer. My dream is for one day cancer to be looked at like high blood pressure or diabetes....a disease that while is not ideal, it can be managed and survived.

While that is my dream, my wish is for my Mom. It is a selfish wish, but it is my wish...my wish is for my Mom to be a survivor!

Want to play along? ..here's what you need to know:

1. Write your blog post including your Wish! {out loud}.
2. Grab and display the Wish! {out loud} button in your post.
3. Link up through one of the hosts' blogs because it will show up on all three.
4. Start visiting other blogs, making friends, and make a Wish! come true.


  1. Found your blog via Chickadette. Your wish is totally not selfish! I wish I could make it come true for you! My father passed away 5 years ago from pancreatic cancer. Cancer Sucks! I hope that you mom finds peace and strength!

    I love your blog! I am your newest follower! I am new to blogging, please follow me at http://tambijeanne.blogspot.com/! Thanks!

  2. Your wish is by no means selfish. Anyone that reads your post will keep you and your mom in their thoughts and prayers. I hope that you get your wish and your mom gets her strength back.

    By the way I'm giving away a $50 Sephora gift card AND $40 credit to Iyiami Handbags on my blog http://www.l0velindsey.com!

  3. This is a very powerful wish to put out into the universe. Like you said- putting it out there often gets the power behind it you need. Just from people reading this, I for one, and Im sure much more, will be sending prayers and positive energy and healing light your mom's way. Sending you endless amounts of love as well!

  4. Lordy - I wish I could just make your wish come true! But I will be thinking about you and your mom!

  5. Your wish isn't selfish at all! My father passed away from cancer earlier this year so I feel for you and what you must be going through.

    Last night I had a dream about my dad. At the end of his life, he wasn't really coherent and was confused easily. That's how he was in my dream. It made me sad. I'd wish for him back but not in that condition. I wonder how much he was aware of at the end. He wanted to fight it but cancer won.

    I hope your mom gets better.

  6. Cara, this is such a deep, powerful, and absolutely in no way selfish wish. I am sending my positive thoughts, prayers, and love for your mom to get her strength back.
    Thank you for sharing your wish and linking up this week. Your wish is a beautiful one.

  7. I'm still thinking of you and your mom and praying for her to beat this. I'm so sorry that she is in pain and that you have to see her this way. This is not a selfish wish at all. Please stay positive and keep the faith. {Hugs}
