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 :)
