My Little Gold Star

Watching as the lights twinkle on the tree and the small gold sparkling star twirls around on its thin gold string, almost as if its got a life of its own.

Each of the five points catches a different light and throws it back out in a different way illuminating other parts of the tree you sometimes miss. It starts to slow in its spinning and dances with a dip and twist every other turn, the lights bouncing off the points now.

Gold stars remind us of Christmas and are all around, literally everywhere you look (bet you see loads now). My daughters class sang "follow that star" in her recent nativity at School, she often talks of the star of Bethlehem when she see's one.

But for me it represents a lot more - I often say to my little girl at bed time 'love you to the moon and back' and she replies 'mummy I love you to the stars and more'...we don't always do it but it represents our love and I find comfort in saying it and having her reply (which changes but always involves stars).

Another motivational saying also urges us to 'reach for the moon, if you miss you might land among the stars' and if my girl is good I'll tell her she's being a star!

Back to my spinning star, I can see our faces in the flat smooth surface on these  front, distorted but we are there, three of us, heads squished together because toddlers don't have spacial boundaries and if you can get as close to mummy as possible then you are winning at life.

Stars mean love, they are a symbol of love and in our house they are a positive thing. Cub knows what stars are and in the night sky he'll call planes stars too.  I can't wait for Christmas this year and to watch as my two little gold stars shine...
