I have spent my entire life surrounded by children. The thing about kids is they have so many secrets. They know things that we’ve all forgotten or swept under the rugs of our minds. These little ones… they haven’t yet lost this knowledge.
For instance, they know without a doubt there is a Santa Claus. Fairies not only exist but they are more beautiful than you can ever imagine and if you happen to catch a glimpse of them hiding in the trees or peeking out from underneath their flower beds, you will be caught breathless and once again become a believer.
Our children know that ringing bells can stir up miraculous things like angels and wings and that mermaids are real- end of story. There is magic in their make-believe, whimsy in their wonder, and summoning power in the celebration of this game called Life.
During this week when we honor the lives of so many babies lost in Connecticut, it is important to also honor the magical truths they held so dear to their hearts. Please remember that the Spirit of Santa is indeed real and that only one night’s worth of oil can burn for eight. Please contemplate the stars and watch the moon for evidence of sleigh crossings. Sniff the air for the scent of impending snow.
Remember to discuss dinosaurs and wooly mammoths on a regular basis and to build living room forts on a cold Saturday afternoon. Remember to dance because it feels good, not because you look good. And please make sure to climb a tree and swing on a swing set whenever you happen across one.
Can you find this magic in your life? This is the perfect season to try. Can you remember that life is precious and miraculous, even when it’s dark and scary? Can you remember that bedtime prayers are just as important as goodnight kisses?
Let’s honor the spirit of this Season of Miracles with a bit of playfulness and joy. Find your inner child and ask her what she’d like to do. If you need help finding or talking to her, seek out the help of an expert… ask a kid.
After all, we too once saw this world as a magical playground and a place to be discovered and delighted in. So this week, dust off the stuffy old reality of adulthood, and bring some sparkle back to your world. I know there are twenty new angels in heaven that would just love to play this game with you.
