“Miracles happen to those who believe in them.”

- Bernard Berenson

I grew up in the Midwest – Lake Bluff, Illinois – and my grandparents lived in LaGrange, so we got to see them every week. I was especially close with them. My Poppy and I loved to play crazy eights for hours.

As the story goes, when I was five my Poppy took me to the Lake Bluff fire department to see Santa. Santa flew in on a helicopter (!) and gave candy to all the kids.

We stood in line, I sat on Santa's lap, told him what I wanted and got my candy.

Walking home from the fire station, my Poppy asked me, "How was it hon?"

I replied, "He's just a big fake."

My Poppy said, "Really?"

"Yeah," I replied, "But I've noticed, the kids who believe get a lot more than those who don't."

I would agree with that premise to this day.

Have the best day ever!
