Oh the wonder of a child... the incessant questions, the insatiable curiosity, the fascination with the little things, finding joy in simple pleasures. Somewhere along the line we lose these things... and I want them back!!
I got a glimpse of it once this winter when I went sledding... most fun I have had in ages (although I still hate to be wet and cold). Now that we have a great hill out our front door, I am looking forward to sledding again next winter (not looking forward to it, too much; I still want a nice long warm summer!!)
I hope I never lose the wonder of seeing wildlife in my back yard ... deer, turkey, a coyote, even a black bear, but mostly deer and turkey!! :)
I want to reclaim the wonder of dancing in the rain, splashing in puddles, picking dandelions...
I want to be a kid again and that is hard for me!! Oh the wonder of childhood. Oh the carefree ...
okay, that was shorter than I thought it would be; my mind kinda went blank. I blame it on the late hour, but at least I am "back in the saddle" with Five Minute Friday! Maybe tomorrow I will get a chance to read through some of the other great submissions to Five Minute Friday... go check them out!
