I was on vacation with my family, and I was really missing my boyfriend back home. I started folding sheets of paper into stars to pass the time.
When I got back, I asked him if he knew how to fold a paper star. He didn’t, so I showed him and then pulled out the gallon-sized Ziploc bag I had been filling with stars.
I dropped the last one in and told him that I had made one for every time I thought about him. Here’s the best part – I made sure there were 999 stars in the bag, and the one I made to show him how to do it was the 1000th one.
It’s believed that if you fold 1000 stars, you can make a wish on them. With the 1000 stars complete, I gave the bag to him and let him make the wish!
