This week I was reading to my daughter’s kindergarten class lots of fun christmas stories. I was dressed as Mrs. Claus, and it felt like Christmas Magic was in the air. One of the little boys asked me to show him real magic. I hesitated for just a second, then I had my daughter stand up, their teacher. I told the children to look at her face, then I asked the little boy to give her a hug. Before he could walk around other children two other little girls were already wrapped around her legs. Then this little boys reached her and put his hug on top of theirs. Within a moment it spread to almost every child was wrapped in this beautiful example of love. I watched my daughter go from a soft smile, brighten, then little tears. She loves her students, and they love her. I was so grateful to see that happen.
When all the children sat back down, I explained that Christmas Magic is when you can make someone else smile. You can do it through a hug, or any kindness. I gave each student a choc. Kiss and told them the magic was inside. When they ate it they would feel warm inside, but it they shared the magic then it would grow, and they were supposed to make it as big as they could. One little girl asked for an extra piece because it was her Mom’s favorite. Another little boy wanted one for his brother. Then one cute little blonde girl told me it could be spread through words. She added that she had been doing it her whole life. I told her the magic was in her heart, and when it is there it can’t help but spread. These cute little ones understand love, Christmas Magic, and it was special to be apart of.
