May you always retain the wonder of a child

I lost my belief in magic and fairy tales way too young.  When I became a mother, I rediscovered it.  Our family was brought together by nothing less than fate, magic, or heavenly intervention.  Whatever you may believe in, there are some things that are just magical to behold or be a part of.  Love and family are but two of them.

As my son grows, I am determined to encourage his belief in magic for as long as possible.  Some of the childhood figures, like Santa and the tooth fairy, are quickly losing their luster.  However, I am hopeful I can continue to expose him to the wonder of possibility.

Watching my son, and how he sees the world, reminds me of just how much wonder surrounds us every day.

This holiday season, I wish for you to pause.  To stop and look around.  To see the world – and the people in it – for all their glory.  That sense of wonder…of possibility…I can’t imagine a greater gift.

I hope you and yours have a merry, merry Christmas.
