December 4 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)

At first this prompt intimidated me.  Who am I kidding, all the prompts have intimidated me!  That's kind of the point of me following allow.

But then it struck me that I have a son who is turning 3 this month.  What cultivates a sense of wonder in your life more than a small child?  Then it became crystal clear.

Seeing the world through his eyes nearly knocks me off my feet every day.  Explaining new concepts to him makes them seem new all over again to me.  Simply running through the grocery store parking lot holding hands and laughing cultivates a sense of wonder and joy that I haven't had in a long time.

And this time of year is the best.  I've always loved Christmas with a passion - the magic, the joy, the wonder!  We have a lot of traditions in my family, and sharing them with him is amazing. This year he completely gets it and is so excited!  Every day this month is full of new excitement and wonder.  It makes me want to savor every moment!
