In the Spirit

Some notes from today:

Turns out if you are patient and kind sales people really appreciate it.

The guy in line in front of me who asked a lot of questions about the beer I was buying was kind of flirting with me.

Max tried flan at dinner tonight.

Soccer balls can and will break windows.

I cry at all the wrong moments during How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

"pinned to the now
by the soft roar of what I love"

The list of movies I need to add to my netflix queue is now more than a page long.

A Santa gift was lost and then miraculously found at my sister's house.

Right now, at this very minute, I can hear Max rocking in the rocking chair while he reads a book we raced to the library to pick up before they closed at 6pm.

I may be beginning to believe in magic again.


  1. Where is the "like" button... Big Smiles. Magic is everywhere within our wonderful days... ;) It's all a matter of spiritual perspective.

  2. Magic is always something to believe's harder at some times than others, but still, worthwhile.
    I'm with Carol....I need a *like* button here!!
    Happy Holidays to you and yours....may the magic be even bigger tomorrow!!

  3. So, so beautiful--may the good feelings linger...
