The Christmas List
Throughout my elementary school years I included a pony on my Christmas list every year. The list would read something like: a skip-it, new clothes, and a pony. Every year!!! On Christmas morning I always had this slight sadness when my mother didn’t escort me to our backyard to unveil my new playmate. But one year I didn’t include it. I can’t remember when… or even why I stopped, but I did. When do we lose that childlike belief that fairytales come true….should we? As I look at my little girl I wonder what she will convince herself that I am capable of producing in the name of love…in the name of magic. I pray that her requests will restore that childlike belief (in myself) that I AM capable of anything.
Always with love,
