magic of christmas

Putting aside the true significance of Christmas, it was lovely to be able to spend yesterday in the company of a three year-old who was absolutely captivated by the wonder and excitement of the day itself. It was her first “real” Christmas and she had been eagerly anticipating it over the past few days – complete with Santa and all his reindeers! She loved the present opening and seemed genuinely thrilled by what she found inside; she was especially delighted by her blue scooter. She even had time to enjoy her Christmas lunch. At the end of the day, as she walked to the car, I heard her say to Ruth: “wasn’t that a lovely day!”.
Indeed it was!
