November 7, 2018 wide eyed wonder

Standard

Good morning, DearOne.

Our granddaughter, Liv, is two. Through a two year old’s eyes there is curiosity and surprise and excitement in unexpected places. And, everywhere is an ‘unexpected place’. Her face lights up, her brown eyes get big and cut around, her eyebrows lift, and her lips make an ‘o’ as she gasps. Which, in turn, elicits the exact same response from all the adults who are watching.

Pure joy.

Wonder.

Awe.

Appreciation.

All a gift.

It makes me think of this … the familiar, that which we have known & experienced before, can surely rob us. It can deny us of the wonder, the awe, the gift that is before us. If we are going to appreciate what is before us, it is going to be because we deliberately choose & pursue the wonder.

“The man answered, “Why, this is an amazing thing! You do not know where he comes from, and yet he opened my eyes.

…He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.”

John 9:30, 38 ESV

Wake up.

Watch in wonder.

Go.

Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey.
