We Believe!

In my household we believe in the magic of Santa. My son is 12 years old and my daughter is 10 years old. We believe in the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy too! (Coincidentally, the Tooth Fairy will also be making a stop at my house tonight, and I am guessing my daughter will leave the Tooth Fairy a treat along side Santa's cookies and milk!) I am sure my son is old enough to understand how Santa works, but I think he understands our unspoken Christmas tradition. I knew the magic of Santa would not be revealed in my household, I pretty much figured it would be leaked at school........

As my daughter and I were driving to the store last week she asked me if Santa was real. Sigh. I told her that I believe in Santa. She thought about it for a few minutes quietly. I then asked her why she was asking and if she heard something different. She said yes, a girl at her school told her Santa was not real. My heart sunk. I asked her how she responded to that remark. My daughter replied, "I told her that she has her own beliefs and I have my own beliefs." She blew me away with her response! She is wise beyond her years. She did not let that little girl break her spirit! I am touched by her response and will be sure Santa visits her, um, forever!

Later that week she got a video message from Santa! It was so fun to see the excitement in her eyes! I am so happy me and my kids have traditions that will last a lifetime. They are the same traditions started by my parents. Kids grow up too fast, I will cherish these moments forever. I will also keep in mind what I learned from a wise 10 year old girl: some peoples' beliefs might be different than mine, and that is ok! We will keep moving forward with our magical Christmas beliefs.  

This was a fitting Christmas card this year. Many blessings to you and your family! Merry Christmas to you all!
