I get the greatest sense of wonder from my kids. I have to constantly work at putting aside frustrations with them and with daily life, so that I can enjoy that wonder. It’s entirely too easy to get caught up in chores done or not done, schoolwork done or not done, good/bad behavior. I have to consciously step back, and then I can think, Wow! There this whole other person there, and they came from that little baby way back when, and they have their own view of the world. Trying to connect each child with the baby I remember just forces a sense of awe and wonder.
