Looking with fresh eyes......


It's that time of year again when everything is fresh and new.  After living on this planet for 50 plus years (:-)), I sometimes tend not to look at everyday things with the eyes of a child.  Savannah and I seen our first lightning bug last night.   I'm not sure if lightning bugs or fireflies as some people call them are in all parts of the country but to a two year old they are magical and watching her get so excited when she seen one was pure joy!  It's no secret this is my favorite time of year and I love seeing the night sky light up with these tiny little bugs and to see it through the eyes of a child is just plain fun!!!  I hope we never lose our sense of wonder at the beauty that God has put in this world but if you do, just hang around a two year old for a little while and you will see bugs, rocks, plants etc... with fresh eyes!!

aww Look at that sweet Savannah! I agree that by looking at things the way they do, is so much more fun! God truly gives us opportunities if we just watch and wait.

I hope your summer will be all that you want it to be.

P.S. I think it was Christmas before last, but Hunter got a gift of a jar with a lightening bug inside; there's a little button you push to watch it fly around. :)

Haha, what an expression on her cute little face! So true on your post that we need to step back and look at things with fresh eyes.

I haven't seen a firefly in a long long time. I have fond memories of catching them with my sisters and cousins and putting them in jars beside our bed. Great memories.

Hugs,

There is nothing sweeter than seeing something through a child's eyes!
