Finding the Magic

As I watched Annabel standing there in her pink sparkly shoes (which she had requested to wear), I realized for the hundredth time how amazing it is to live with this little girl who allows me to re-live pieces of my childhood a little bit more each day.

She finds the magic in the ordinary, and we all benefit.

Where I see nothing but a bunch of ponytail holders, she sees bracelets.

Where I see a pile of cheap, tacky mardi gras beads, she sees treasures.

She forces me to slow down, enjoy the moment, and see the beauty all around us.

How lucky am I?
