My Son Everett watched the Polar Express for the first time. If you’ve seen the movie, you understand that the bell rings for all who believe in Santa Clause.
I wanted to instill some magic in his young heart, so I attached a bell to some red ribbon and placed it in a small box. At the end of the movie I handed it to him. He didn’t even have to open it, and somehow he intuitively knew what was inside. His eyes lit up as he opened it. My husband Aaron laughed, “mommy’s been waiting her whole life to do that”. I laughed even harder because I knew it was true.
Sometimes it’s the simple little things that are the most beautiful in life. The things that are free, like hope and faith. . . or believing in something magical. It was important to me that Everett develops an imaginative mind and a heart that desires to believe in more. . .
