Christmas Magic


My three year old daughter is afraid of the dark. When she wakes in the middle of the night I hear her little feet scrambling across the hallway, heading to me through the darkness as fast as she can go. On rainy mornings, when the curtains are drawn, she won’t get out of bed without me.

But this morning I felt her rise early before the sun. She crept out of the bed without a word and tiptoed into the dark family room. My husband and I watched to see if she’d make the trip alone. I called out to ask what she was doing (though I already knew). She quickly ran back and whispered to me, “Mommy, Santa’s been here and he remembered exactly what I asked for! Come see!”

Sometimes all we need is a little magic to help us overcome our fears.

A little belief in something bigger than ourselves can carry us through the darkness.

 That’s my wish for you as this Christmas season comes to a close: that you’ll believe in something bigger than yourself, that you’ll let your Faith carry you through the darkness, and that your life will have even just a little bit of magic.

Merry Christmas! Many Blessings to you and yours!
