Magic Matters-There’s No Denying It

Without the magic of it all, what is the point of it all? Think about it. What would be missing from a world without the mystery and the magic? Well let’s think;
Santa, Rudolf, Frosty, The Little Drummer Boy, cookies and carrots and presents AND family gatherings…
The Easter Bunny, egg hunts, baskets filled with chocolate, AND family gatherings…
Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hogwarts, Diagon Alley quidditch, the whole magical world of it all AND family gatherings to read the books and watch the movies…
M-i-c-k-e-y, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, Daisy, the whole magical world of it all, AND family gatherings…
R2-D2, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Princess Leah, the whole magical galaxy of it all AND family gatherings.

You know, for most of my life I was engrossed in the magic. My parents and extended family rooted our traditions within it. We gathered. We gathered all the damn time! As I got older and life undoubtedly chipped away at the magic, I grew weary and then I became just darn dark about it all. I was stuck in the pain of tragic and traumatic loss. I never could have imagined it would take as long as it has to regain my identity. But it did, it took years. Now that I have come through the other side of the fire I am eager to find the magic and build family traditions around it. I am ready for Sunday dinners and picnics in the park. I can’t wait for ordering pizza, kayaking, and sunsets on the beach. I’m excited for birthdays and name days and Tuesdays. There is magic tucked away in all of it! Thank God!!
