  • There is no greater gift than the trust of a child. Everything that is, is better than everything that was. When my grandson touches me, he shares with me the innocence of childhood that I never had. His imagination is like a magic wand taking us where ever we want to go. It’s reminded me of my own magic wand and the secret word for calling it is Play. It is never too late to be happy.
