If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life. And if that child is to keep alive an inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. – Rachel Carson
When I read this quote I immediately thought of my young grandson who is only two and a quarter years old and so full of wonder about every little thing in the world. He is so fortunate that he has parents and his extended family who share a commitment to ensure he will continue to be awed, surprised, excited and curious about the world. His interest and delight is contagious and uplifting.
That sense of wonder is so important, and what a blessing to have a little grandson to keep you in touch with it. My little granddaughter is about to turn 3, and she too is full of wonder.
We are blessed to have him and he lives near by which means we see him a lot. Every little, and big thing matters to them and it is easy to share that with them.
