Five Minute Friday: Wonder



Her eyes twinkle as she holds a ladybug that crawls its way up her arm.

A butterfly flutters its wings and holds their gaze.

My son gasps at a train that stands still on a track. "Does it change color?" he asks.

The buds on our flowers slowly unfold to reveal pink and yellow flowers. They run in with such excitement to tell me the news.

Gray clouds move in and thunder begins to roll. The wind blows and their bodies dance as the breeze moves them along. Then they quickly race inside just in time to watch from the back door as the raindrops fall.

All the time their eyes full of wonder.

Beautiful! Children are such amazing reminders to jaded adults that the world IS amazing.

Thanks for your comment on my 5MinFri post! I'm glad I stopped by to read yours... I needed your refreshed perspective on my kids (two boys, 3.5 & 1.5) today... it's so easy to just get tired of the whining and the clinging and the bickering, and forget that they won't be this small, this needy, this preciously dependent forever... thank you for reminding me to find my wonder in their wonder!
