Looking at life through the eyes of children is to see the WONDER of it all.
Last night we had our two little grandsons over. We watched with fascination the way they responded to each other. Nolan, our oldest, was laughing as Henry was trying to pronounce words and make conversation. Henry was trying his hardest to show Nolan how big he was. You could almost see their brains working as they flew from one toy to another.
One of my goals in life is to live a life of wonder. Must we always tear things apart trying to figure it all out? Can we not just enjoy the simplicity of life? The fresh air, the clouds drifting by, the birds tweeting in the bushes, snow falling or even the wind howling as the trees pelt the house with dead branches. Oh the wonder of a child forming his or hers first words, baking a cake with a toddler, building matchbox car race tracks and a familyroom full of tents!
Life is short! Have some fun!
