Fellow saint and sinner Paul sent along this heartwarming video about a boy whose wish came true. Eight-year-old Atticus in Portland, Oregon, loves soccer. He also happens to have cancer. One day he got his wish: to play the Portland Timbers; Atticus’ team, The Green Machine, took on the Timbers before a stadium of 3,000-plus fans who showed up just to watch Atticus score the winning goal– all this thanks to the work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and its many supporters.

Why wish for a game and not a trip to an amusement park? “Usually kids just choose to go to Disneyland with their family or getting something,” Atticus explained. “I chose something that lots of people could do.”

I wonder what the world might look like if we spent more time helping one another’s dreams come true, and then joining in the celebration.

What do you wish for? Leave your answers below and I’ll share them.
