flying wishes

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Zeal ran across this new "whimsical kit to make your dreams come true" and has been off and running the last few days, so I just had to share it with you. The kits come with a disclaimer saying these kits are not intended for children, but with supervision I think they are just delightful.

The product is Flying Wish Paper. The premise is "Think of a special wish… your fondest dream, your deepest desire, your ambitions, concerns or burdens—and write it down on the Flying Wish Paper™. Shape your paper into a tube and place it on the Wish Platform™. Light the top edge of the tube and watch it burn down in a small, beautiful flame. At the last moment your wish magically lifts off the platform and rises to the heavens!"

As a family, as you might know by now, we are big into goal setting, especially during the spring months. This has been the perfect addition to our spring goals, intentions, and wishes, giving Zeal and the rest of us a fun and tangible way to send our wishes out into the universe. We are brainstorming all the ways we might be able to use this stuff: with our scout group, for birthdays, blessings, or just for fun with friends. Our wishes are feeling mighty heavenly!
