Christmas Magic

"The whole world abounds in magic. When a whale plunges out of the sea like a newborn mountain, you gasp in unexpected delight. What magic! 
But a toddler who sees his first tadpole flashing in a mud puddle feels the same thrill. 
Wonder fills his heart, because he has glimpsed for an instant the playfulness of life."
~Michael Jackson

It always amazes me, the wonderment and magic in a child's eyes when receiving a gift.  That a handmade gift can still bring immense joy over store bought, computer driven bobbles that the novelty quickly wears from.  That, by far, is the best gift of any season!

Today, I received such a gift when the Hub & I delivered several of the "Winter Friends"



Security is heightened, so naturally I called ahead to the school to ensure that I would not have any problems entering with large boxes which were obviously stuffed to the brims.  These boxes of fiber sunshine, brightened an overall gloomy and blustery day.



I love watching even the most stoic of teachers' faces change during the holiday!  Christmas truly is a magical time of the year... and after several weeks of nearly non-stop and relentless crocheting - being rewarded with a warm smile, a joyful shriek and a few hugs makes it all worth while!
