As the kids and I buckled up and headed down the road in search of food to fill our bellies, my son says to me from the back seat, “Mom, you know what I do when I want to feel happy?” I’m a little surprised by the topic and am unsure where it came from, but I don’t discourage it. I’m actually very curious to know the answer.
Me: No, what do you do when you want to feel happy?
Son: I picture things I like with holiday lights and Santa hats on them.
A smile spreads across my face as we leave our neighborhood and cruise down the road. What a great way to lift one’s spirits. And all this coming from my ten-year-old son. Sometimes I’m taken aback by how quickly he’s growing.
Son: You should try it sometime, mom. It’s really fun.
Me: I think I just might have to do that. Thank you, hon.
The sun rolls behind the horizon, the sky darkens and lights on both sides of the street start to illuminate our path. It’s a magical time of year. And I find that I’m never ready for the lights to turn off. It’s one part of the holidays I wish would last longer. As we turn into a local eatery, I realize my son just might be on to something. After all, I like pretty and shiny, and holiday lights are definitely that!
So, from my son, me, and my entire family – Happy Holidays. May it be filled with all kinds of magic!
