What do you think when you hear the word "magic"?  For me the word conjures up good things.  I like to think that all the good things in my life are 'magic' and should be treated as such -- not taking anything for granted.  

Since we all know I'm a 'word junkie' -- I've decided to make "Magic" my word of this new year.  Each day I will reflect on all the magic in my life -- being thankful -- being in the moment -- living a 'magical' life.

The first 'magical' event was a video sent to me by my granddaughter showing my great grandson opening his first year birthday gifts.  Oh how adorable he is and what a gift he is to our family.

The second was the snow that came down and covered everything in beautiful white blankets.

The third was a new-to-me tea, flavored with Chamomile and Lavender.

Just think, more to come!  Yes, magic does exist!!!


  1. Our thoughts are moving in the same direction this year, as they often do. I have another blog friend who has a new baby in the family. The mother set up a private U-Tube account that can only be viewed by invitation. She loads the vids she takes of her kids so everyone she has invited can watch. I thought that was a really cool idea.

    Our weather guy predicted we will get 80" of snow this season and we have had about 10 or so up to now. I hope we will not receive the rest all at one time!! However, we have had rain. I forgot that so it may not be THAT bad.

    Magic is a marvelous word. It conjures up thoughts of wonder and mystic. I love to just SAY magic. It's like, well, magic!

  2. :) I hope your life continues its magical journey this year! I love the idea of appreciating the magic in your life and taking time to reflect on the joy of it!

  3. May all your days have some magic about them!

  4. What a wonderful post! I believe in magic, and I believe we all NEED magic.

    One of my favorite magic quotes is from Bertrand Russell:

    "The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."

    I can't wait to hear more about your magical adventures in 2017.

  5. Magic, such a magical word. I must try to find more of it.

  6. In Northern England, 'magic' is used as a superlative - "Yer blog's magic, lass," - in all senses of the word!

  7. mmmm-that tea looks good-think I'll try it. I think 'Magic' would be a good pets' name too. Maybe a cat. You're right-we need those moments in our lives-back to the wonder of being a child, maybe...

  8. Super optimistic post, Penny, as always. I count on that!
