Make-A-Wish Monday


Last week I wished for "solified connections" and I memorized the poem, Invictus, to help my little wish along. I'm pleased to report success to a degree ... and expected increased success this coming week.

For this week,
I wish greater healing for my mother.
To help this wish come true I'm inviting all of you
(and hoping you'll invite all of your blog readers)
to participate in a 1,000 origami crane project. If you don't know the story, you can read it here. Directions to make paper cranes can be found here. If you'd like, please include a little note with a positive thought.
Your crane should be mailed to:
Connie Call
2612 Ashwood Lane
Bedford, TX 76021
I'll be back in Texas with my parents in a couple of weeks. I hope all 1,000 cranes arrive by then so I can string them together for my mom. Thank you in advance for participating and for promoting this to your readers. Really, blog friends, you are the best! Lots of love to you all.

  6. I learned about this story in 4th grade and collectively, with my class, we made 1000 paper cranes. Now, I make origami mobiles that I sell on Etsy that include some cranes. I would love to help!
