F3 Week 18: I Wish I May, I Wish I Might


Prompt by Joyce Juzwik

Here we are just a week away from the beginning of another new year. New Year’s Day can represent many possible beginnings. These could include starting a new job or moving into a new home, and fresh opportunities abound for a potentially brighter future.

The evening of New Year’s Eve is traditionally viewed as the time to ring in the new year. Some give, or attend, parties, and others celebrate quietly in their homes. For this particular New Year’s Eve, our focus is going to be on you.

You spend New Year’s Eve ushering in the new year in the same way you always do, whatever that may be. When the clock strikes midnight, you make a wish – the same wish you make on every New Year’s Eve, and retire for the night. This year, however, when New Year’s Day dawns, you discover your wish has been granted.
