A Simple Wish



"Mommy, I love you to the moon and back." 

"Aww! baby! my words are coming back to me." Sheila chuckled as she adjusted her head and wiped the sweat off her forehead.

"Mommy, when can you play with me?" 

"As soon as I feel better, doll." 

Hearing that, Liz closed her eyes and waved her magic-wand in her direction. 

"What did you wish?" Mom inquired when Liz opened her eyes.

Liz placed her tiny hands over her bald head, "My deepest wish is that you get well so we can play together and go out for pizza and burgers."

I would call that a very good wish indeed! :)

Sure hope that kid gets her wish, if only so that she can still believe in wishes.

Such a sweet and innocent perspective, Ruchira. Moving flash.

A beautiful wish and story. I like how the drawing goes well with the tale.
