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).

    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!

    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…..

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

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

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