A Wish on a Dandelion

Since I was a little girl I have always loved picking dandelions out of the ground and putting them in my hair. I think dandelions are pretty. Sure, they kill grass and they can make a mess on your lawn but there is something sweet about them.

I have good and bad memories of dandelions. I remember blowing on them as a little girl and thinking of peace, joy and laughter. But I also remember being told to wish scary things. So when I look at a dandelion I have bittersweet memories.

Today I picked up a dandelion and I made a wish for my future. I wished for hope.
