Last week when we had our first snowfall, I lifted Little Sister from her crib and took her to the window. She stared at the white glitter covering the roof and the gorgeous mountains in the distance for what felt like a long minute. After the extended pause she said “I love it!”
That moment was following the huge burst of excitement Big Brother experienced 30 minutes earlier when he awoke and realized it was snowing. He ran to each window opening the blinds so he could get a closer look. He wanted outside and he wanted it now!
Watching the whole thing unfold in front of my eyes, and feeling the incredible energy from my children added to the magic that was in the air. A lot of times happiness comes when we allow the inner child in us to be released. Often we suppress that part of ourselves. Want to be happy? Let the magic in, and the child out.
