The Eyes of a Child

I was just reflecting that many people say they feel old when they become a grandparent, but I’m feeling young again. This will be the fifth time that I’ll get to experience and explore life through the eyes of a child–and that NEVER gets old to me. Every bug, rock, leaf, raindrop, and rainbow take on a whole new sense of wonder, awe, and amazement, and are worthy of much time and contemplation. Puddles become playgrounds. “Walks” become stops, to take the time to REALLY LOOK at the wonders and miracles all around us. In the meantime, just gazing into the little guys eyes, as he gazes into mine, is more than enough for me.
