Thoughts - September 4, 2016

"Few people know so clearly what they want. Most people can't even think what to hope for when they throw a penny in a fountain." ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams
Once you get past the knee jerk reaction of wishing for riches and romance, what does one hope for when a penny splashes in the wishing well? We have (had!) a big hole along the river path at our beloved camp in Hemlock, WV. Mom called it Three Rock Hole and every time you passed that way, you had to throw in three rocks and got a wish on the third throw. I always joke that I got my first husband that way. But.....when I was there a few weeks ago, I felt that if I was going to wish, I needed to make it what I truly want. I'm still thinking. - Beth Almond Ford
