What an insightful notion, that inside each of us....especially at Christmas, is that wide-eyed child of long ago. Waiting and hoping for snow on Christmas or that one special present under the tree. Thrilled with the simple pleasures of the lights on the Christmas tree or that delicious coziness of flannel pajamas and a hot cup of cocoa topped with marshmallows.
Let this be our resolution for the New Year, to allow ourselves to recapture that sweet magic of childhood. To keep kindness and good in our hearts and expect good things to happen. We all need that special quality of youth to give us hope and encouragement for the hard days ahead.
