If You Just Believe

Meeting Santa

Miss A and THE MAN himself!

The other night the girls sprawled out on their lime green monstrosity of a bean bag, wriggled their socks off and watched Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. This high caliber choice in TV seemed appropriate after an early dinner of grilled cheese sandwiches.

Because they were completely mesmerized by the TV  they had been fairly quiet for quite some time and I must admit I was enjoying the blessed peace while I did a little work.

I heard Miss A break the silence and what she said surprised me.

“Miss C do you believe in Santa Claus?”

I stopped and waited for it. I knew what Miss C was likely to say but a faint flicker of doubt stirred in my heart. So I waited.

“Yes, do you?” Miss C replied matter-of-factly.

“Yes.”

They went on quietly watching TV, content in their shared belief.

And I smiled, content in their shared belief.

p.s. I love the Polar Express and this Josh Groban song kept coming to mind all night. Yes I’m a cheese ball! No I don’t care!

Believe (theme song to Polar Express)

Children sleeping
Snow is softly falling.
Dreams are calling
Like bells in the distance.

We were dreamers
Not so long ago.
But, one by one
We all had to grow up.

When it seems the magic slipped away,
We find it all again on Christmas Day.

Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that’s playing.
There’s no time to waste,
There’s so much to celebrate.

Believe in what you feel inside,
And give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need
If you just believe.

Trains move quickly
To their journey’s end.
Destinations
Are where we begin again.

Ships go sailing
Far across the sea.
Trusting starlight
To get where they need to be.

When it seems that we have lost our way,
We find ourselves again on Christmas Day.

Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that’s playing.
There’s no time to waste,
There’s so much to celebrate.

Believe in what you feel inside,
And give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need
If you just believe.

If you just believe
If you just believe
If you just believe
Just believe
Just believe

    It’s a good thing you got a good-looking santa in that pic. There was this blog that featured one of the worst santas ever. Poor children!
