"Imagine Wonder"

What a reminder this little dear is - a reminder to imagine wonder.


When looking in the dictionary for the word wonder there are all manner of definitions.  The closest they get for me is: "a feeling of surprised or puzzled interest; miraculous deed or event."  In my life that is mild for what I feel when wonder appears. 

Looking at a sunset or a dark sky filled with stars goes well beyond 'a feeling of surprised or puzzled interest'.  Having a heart filled with love by children, grandchildren, great grandchildren is almost stunning its so wonderous. 

Hopefully she won't fly away too soon -- a reminder of wonder is always welcome.

"Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experienece that reveals the human spirit." - e. e. cummings

  1. Wonder has so many meanings for me, depending on what is on my mind. One of my favorite wonderings is to raise my arm in front of me. Such a wonderous thing to move your arm and make it do what you want it to. Don't you just WONDER how that works? Don't you just think it's a WONDEROUS thing to be able to do? I too look at the heavens in wonder. This morning, I am wondering why my house had cloud cover and I couldn't see the Blood Moon, while others just 5 miles north or south of me snapped pictures to their hearts content. I'll be gone when it happens again, but HA!! I distinctly remember looking up at the LAST one, about 30 years ago. Isn't memory a Wonderous thing.

  2. A wonderful word! Sometimes things I take for granted surprise me and fill me with wonder. Like Carol mentions, the fact that we move, without thinking, to do the things we do is a wonder. The turning of the leaves in fall, the new growth in spring. We don't always pay attention to all the things in the world that are wonderful, so sometimes they can surprise us again and again.

  3. Ditto Jenclair, except I don't take moving my arm for granted anymore. Just got back from an appointment to treat my achey arm that doesn't want to move, lol! I agree with Carol, memory is a wondrous thing. Don't take that for granted either though, I seem to have more and more "senior moments" these days. Now to keep my sense of humor, that indeed would be a wondrous thing!

  4. Wonder, something to live for, to wonder what will happen next.

  5. Wonder is a gift all children seem to have. It's so sad that many adults seem to be unable to get back to that state of mind. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Liz E -- its easier to spend time in 'wonder' as I get older. There are fewer deadlines, my time is my own and I can let my mind wander as it will.

  6. She will stay with you, I'm sure, because she knows you understand!

  7. I agree - that definition really doesn't do the word justice. As long as we have wonder we'll never age...
