Remember being a child and getting down on your hands and knees to watch a caterpillar crawl around? It never seemed to go very far but I would watch patiently just in case it did something spectacular. That sense of childlike wonder and awe and the joy of being in the moment is something children do so well. When I am with my 5 year old granddaughter, we pause often so she can examine ant hills, lady bugs, dandelions, an interesting twig or rock or whatever catches her eye. She is so present in the moment and everything delights her. She finds pleasure in the simplest things in nature and nothing escapes her eagle eye. She is full of boundless Joy and so happy to be alive. I have learned so much from this little girl. When I am with her it’s like being a child again, laughing joyfully, stopping to smell the roses, examining a leaf, discovering a new flower, laying in the grass and reflecting on the trees, rolling down a hill. It’s all about celebrating being alive and being present in the moment. It’s about celebration of the spirit and honoring that sense of childlike wonder and awe present in each of us.
