I started this week with the intention of being open to things that amaze me and make me feel like a child again. I hoped to see them everywhere I looked. I didn't know what to expect but I was open to whatever happened. So far it has been a wonderful week. Not perfect by any means - in fact fairly normal with just a few bumps in the road to make it interesting. But I found that you can see what you are looking for if that is your intention. I was most amazed at how people are reacting to the spring. I constantly heard people exclaiming how wonderful the sun felt. They did everything they could to get out from the stores they were working in. Everyone wanted a minute or two in the sun. People have started sitting outside for lunch and the parks are filled with young and old alike. Since it stays lighter longer I can hear the kids laughing and playing outside much later than usual. I used to love to play outside in the spring and it seems like nothing has changed. I felt wonder as I noticed the trees go from bare to filled with leaves in what seemed overnight. I felt wonder when someone knocked on our door and asked if we wanted to sell our house. I felt wonder as I heard my husband and his friends laugh as they played cards the other day. I love the definition of wonder. A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. Although my intention was to spend the week being aware of wonder, I think this is an intention that I will keep forever. Won't you join me? What fills you with wonder?
