It Started With A Question

“What are you staring at?”

a young girl asks.

The nursing home patient says,

“My dog. She’s leaving now.

I don’t know when

I’ll see her again.”

With this, The Three Wishes

project began and a fund-raiser started.

“If I could bring you 3 things 

in the whole world,

what would those be?” she asked the residents.

Some answers –  A fast-food meal,

a warmer blanket, a visit from my pet,

new shoes, Cheetos, a pair of pants

that fit, a trip to a near-by waterpark.

She asked. She listened. She acted.

And now many lives are brighter.
