Keeping a Sense of Wonder
This kid wears me out, tries my patience, and makes each day a little on the crazy side.
But you won’t find anyone more passionate about life or more enthusiastic for the smallest of things.
He’s a walking reminder to me of how I should be seeing life.
How I should be living.
How I should be using all of my senses for every adventure.
I think God knew that I was too serious about life so he sent me someone to shake things up a bit.
Most of my challenging parenting moments stem from me still trying to be too serious and expecting a near three year old to do the same. Far too often I catch myself in the heat of frustration with a sly grin smiling back at me as if to remind me that I’m the one that is making this hard. If I were to follow suit with a sense of wonder, just a little more often, most of the conflict wouldn’t exist.
May you have a WONDER FULL day. I’m off to do the same :)
