To feel: Wonder/A Child

If you can create the feeling inside of what a child might feel whenever they take their – firsts, it is the feeling of wonder.

I would watch my children, and now my grandchildren and can create the feeling from the expression on their face – amazement, surprise and fear.  Just recently my grand-daughter took her first steps on grass.  She has just learned to walk.  Surprise was in her face and fear as she stood like a statue.  Then seeing encouragement from the adults she began walking.  Then suddenly she was running and giggles pealed throughout the air.

I can’t wait until she walks in the snow for the first time.  It will be the same.  It will summon the feeling inside.  Then I jot down the feeling.

That is the feeling of wonder. Watch a child’s first.
