Be Brave!

I am writing this round-up post a little earlier this week. I'm writing it now because I can't believe how many of us are frightened of wishing. When did we learn that it wasn't okay to want things? When did we learn that wanting something just for ourselves was a bad thing? Some of you don't believe in wishes. Some of you said you didn't believe in wishes - but then you wished! Some of you (like me) were worried about the consequences of wishing. It was a much scarier prompt than I initially thought. Some of your wishes were heart-warming, some of them were heart-breaking, but all of them were heart-felt. I just loved reading your words.

But I would like to make a suggestion for another special bit of writing. This is a suggestion for you if you like. (This is not for Sunday Scribblings, this is just for you!) I would like to suggest that you really think about what your three wishes would be if you were sure that they would come true, if you were sure that the only consequences would be good ones, and if you were told that they had to be just for you - no more wishing for world peace. What would your deepest, sincerest, most selfish wishes be? What do you WANT? It is completely safe to want things in your heart. Don't tell us what your wishes are: this is just a bit of post-Sunday homework that you don't have to hand in.

Whether or not you choose to do this, thank you so much for sharing with us again this week.

I need to answer some questions that have been asked:

1. About buttons: We don't have the code to give you the button. People have been clever and created their own without our (technically challenged) help. So we can't give it to you yet, I'm sorry!

2. We will try very hard to post the prompts on Friday night or Saturday morning so that you'll have time to do the writing by Sunday. (And thank you everyone for your helpful comments, we'll keep you all posted on what if any changes we will make!)

See you next week!!

i copied your banner image and scaled/cropped it to match the IF button dimensions. button

it needs coding to link to sunday scribblings, of course, but it doesn't permit me to post the code in this comments box.

maybe we could all wish really hard for it to happen. ;o)

i hope this works - i'm not very good at html code... i may have stumbled on a way of over-riding the editor to accept code. if it doesn't work, please delete to avoid confusion.

To get the button, I went to a blog which had it in the sidebar. Choose "view source" from the view menu in your browser. It's easier to identify the bit of code you want if you choose a blog that has several buttons - then by scrolling down you can see where they are, and just copy and paste the code for the button and its link into the corresponding position in your own template

Alternatively, you can open a photobucket account (www.photobucket.com), save the sunday scribblings button onto your hard drive in your 'My pictures' folder(place cursor over button, right click, then save as), then pick it up using your photobucket album. Photobucket then generates the HTML code for banners or buttons, which ever you prefer.Just place the generated code into your side bar.
Its very EASY (trust me, if I can do it so can you)and that's how I put all the buttons in my side bar. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to leave a question on my blog.

Forgot to add, when photobucket generates the code, replace the photobucket http link with the sunday scribblings link so that if you click on the button it takes you to the Sunday scibblings site and not photobucket.

Have I thoroughly confused you now?
