Magic—Sure as a Baby Laughs

Just when I think that the world holds nothing new, no promise, no prize, a friend comes along and says something short, sweet, and beautiful, something that says "I know exactly what you mean. I see exactly what you see." I smile. Life bubbles into my eyes. The sun shines from way deep inside of me.

It's magic—sure as the stars stay up, sure as a baby laughs.

Yes, Travis.
It sure does. It feels like all is right with the world when it happens that way.

Liz,
When we give ourselves the chance to look at things like we did when we were children, we still can be amazed.

Hi Scot,
Yes, you're right. Yes you are very right. Sometimes it takes the words of a good friend to remind me of that.

Hi Cathy,
Being understood is a lovely thing. We understand each other here a lot.
