Are your kids growing up? Enjoy every minute of it and the magic of them growing never slips away.
A Facebook friend asks on his status how do you keep the magic alive. He is referring to coming home to his houseful of kids including the sibling rivalry, chaos and love all wrapped into one.
My reply is enjoy every minute of it and it never slips away. But my answer defies time, even Steve Miller said Time keeps on slipping, slipping into the future.
Back to enjoying every minute of it and the magic last forever. For me that means you will have magic memories of when the kids believed in fairy tales, unicorns, and faraway lands covered in lollipops. The innocence of children is magical.
You just need to be present. Be available. Always be available for your children. Always.
Hopefully they will remember the magical times as well.
The magic grows when you leave a legacy for your kids.
The best gift you can give anybody is wings. Wings built on time, love, and encouragement manufactures wings better than any wings built in a Boeing assembly plant.
Endow the spirit of them having wings and the ability to take off and set flight and get what they need and also what they want in life.
Watching your kids or people grow and take flight is the magic. The beauty is having fun along the way.
Steve Miller goes on to say he wants to fly like an eagle, until he’s free.
Eagles represent freedom . Freedom is magic.
Spend time with your family now, be present and have no regrets and as a parent you can fly freely knowing your kids have the ability to fly and be free with nothing weighing them down.
Leave a legacy of wings for your kids and magic happens on both ends.
From a parent side you know you did everything possible for your children and the magic is seeing them grow up and succeed in life. I can fly freely with the pride of an eagle knowing I was there for my kids and always will be. I can soar high.
From the kid’s side the magic is they have been gifted with wings. They can soar high.
They can rise, they can soar, they can fly like an eagle with the freedom knowing they were and are brought up in love.
And love is magic.
Children are magic.
Legacy is magic.
Wings are magic.
Keep the magic going my friends.
There is no deceitful trick in the magic of family but if there is a magic solution for these young critters, it is a mixture of time and love, seasoned in encouragement and peppered in fun.
Shake the magic potion of time and love together and enjoy every moment, even years later and that is how you keep the magic going.
You can label the potion “Worthwhile Wings” or Wings for short.
Now that is magic.
Touching post and it’s true; the things my children remember best are the happy times we spent together doing the most trivial of things.
Wonderful Joanne and thanks for reading!
