i can do magic anywhere

By Rachel Awes on January 10, 2011

our 14 year old son, abe, had really gotten into
magic card tricks
& said this one morning
when he slipped the deck into his robe pocket.
(hmmm ** maybe we all can, maybe we all can).

    And as he loves to run into the rainbow with open arms, oh yes, so he will also always remember this thing with the magic!!!!

    I love your son’s realization. I think I will use this as my mantra for the day. “I can do magic anywhere, now that…” I have a colorful new hat that glitters!

    How’s that? I think I can work with this!

    Thank you!

  11. Shelly says:

    This is FABULOUS! If only he know how profound this little thought is. Glad you shared this!

    this put a smile across my face! we can do magic, we just need a place to tuck away the stuff we don’t need to focus on.
    you’re the best

    From the mouths of babes……so much wisdom….
    What a way to start a morning…..


  14. A pocket full of potential…I like this thought. Kids always come up with the best and brightest ideas.

  15. Oh bless him! What a honey and yes, so, so true – just takes some remembering at times.

  16. I think perhaps your family is full of magicians! I hope your son never forgets his magical powers!


  17. Dee says:

    The magic is being passed down…how fun:)
