Do You Believe in Magic…

Childhood really is all about magic.  We teach our kids to look for shapes in the clouds.  That fairies are real.  To wish on a shooting star.  That super heroes exist. To look inside their minds and see what they can create – stories, games, imaginary friends.  Many of us teach them about Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny.  We teach them about four-leaf clovers and pots of gold at the end of the rainbow and leprechauns.  We teach them find joy and magic and wonder in the world around them.  Then they grow up and somehow that magic is lost.  Why? When?   How?  Do we have to become so jaded that even if we KNOW these things don’t exists, we can’t still find joy and wonder and magic in the idea that once they did for us?

Today my daughter asked me if movies are real.  We told her, yes, some movies are real.  Then she asked if the Princesses were real.  I asked her if she thought they were real…her answer?  “Yes, they are real because we got to meet them at Disney!”  Yep, could not ask for a better answer!

I really hope we can keep the magic alive for a long long time!  And then we can relive the magic through our kids.
