Birthday wishes

  
On my birthday, I wish for…

You to find your center, the thing you are meant to do…

You to know your song and sing it well…

You to stand for what you know is right, based on a strong moral core, built on classic, not politically expedient, values…

You to look into someone’s eyes and know that you are loved…

You to know that the real you is revealed when no one is looking, and to act boldly for good in those moments…

You to know the best we can do is serve “us” not “me” …

You to enjoy laughter more than victory, love more than money…

You to see the treasure in a child’s heart, and protect it fiercely…

You to know, really know, that peace cannot be purchased, it must be earned through selfless acts …

And then I wish for the blessing to be in the presence …of you.

About chrisryanwrites

I do my best to tell fast-paced stories with humor and heart. My fiction work is available on amazon.com. Here, I’ll write about the sources for those stories from what I read, watch, listen to, and observe to my experiences as a former award-winning journalist, high school teacher, actor, and producer.
