It seems like everywhere we go we see Candy Canes.
Our neighbors have large plastic ones lining their porch. When we go to the bank, they offer them to my children.
We even have them in our Advent Calendar to help us count down the days to December 25th.
You might think they would get tired of them and wish for something a little more exciting than a red and white curvy stick!
However, my 3 year old little boy LOVES THEM!!! And for the time being he calls them "candy cans" instead of candy canes. It's just adorable!
The other day he shouted with absolute glee, "Yeah, candy cans!" - and in that moment I thought, "wouldn't it be cool if I could find the energy to say "I can" all from a piece of candy!"
You know, things like this:
"I can finish the laundry today."
"I can handle potty training today."
"I can be one of those super patient and creative Mommies."
"I can smile in spite of my current circumstances."
Wouldn't that be fantastic if we could find the will, the energy, and the strength to say & do these "can-do" things all from a small piece of candy?!
