From Zen, meditations on being a mother, Roni Jay

Henry Ford said, “Whether you believe you can or whether you believe you can’t, you’re absolutely right.”
The ability to believe in the improbable is a talent for life. If we don’t believe in magic when we are children, we have no hope of believing in it as adults. One of the greatest gifts a mother (or father) can give her children is a sense of magic and wonder, so that their imagination can blossom. Any opportunity to create magic for a child is an opportunity to give that child a truly valuable gift.
