Habits of Wonder
It is fitting that a season of wonder should follow a season of gratitude. Gratefulness grows when we take the time to see and think about the good things in our lives. The skills of authentically seeing, of thought-filled reflection are necessary for developing the habits of wonder.
Playfulness and laughter, a willingness to explore - to see life as an adventure - and a desire to seek out the beauty around us are necessary to cultivate a sense of wonder! Developing these traits takes time: time we spend with our children playing, exploring, looking for the beautiful and time for our children to grow into these attributes.
"A good book also gives us moments of wonder and joy and laughter. What better way to intentionally give our children their own moments of noticing the Love which knits life together?"
Sharing good books with our children - babies to young adults - is one of the best ways to continue to nurture the habits of wonder together!
What we read is instrumental in who we become!
