Sweet Wishes


What would your one sweet wish be?
If you are little boy would be a roly poly puppy that follows you anywhere and everywhere? If you were a sassy teenager would it be a permanently padlocked room from the inside? Would a brand new shiny car parked in your newly built house be a sweet wish as an adult? Or if you were an elder person would your sweet wish be to hold a brand new baby in your arms and coo at him until your heart's content?
