Sometimes I go about my days thinking of the usual things...money, schedules, and to do lists. Next thing I know it is the next day and we are doing it all over again. But if I can be present enough when Im hanging with the kids, they snap me out of it. Because the old cliches are usually true - somedays I see the wonder of the world through my kids.
Sometimes even explaining a simple thing like rain or watching them explore a new trail or how they get excited over a table of 25 cent books at a fair...it reminds me that there is wonder in the world. That it is bigger than just me, my lists and our little life. That appreciating the smallest of wonders is maybe what it is all about. Because it surely can't be about my lists.
