“Through the eyes of a child you will see the world just as it ought to be.” -author unknown
As adults, we often get busy and forget to appreciate the little things in life. Sometimes it’s wise to just step back and look at things through the eyes of a child.
My Bubby’s eyes hold the innocence and wonder of the world. When I’m too busy or stressed, I watch him play. This weekend, while we were at the pool, he found a bottle cap. Then he found rocks.
Oh what fun he had with his treasures. The simple treasures of the world that surround us every day. Those things that we forget to cherish in our busy lives. Those are his playground.
I love his inner and outward beauty. I love seeing the world through his wide-eyed wonderment when I take the time to look. I need to look more often. And I need to look through my own eyes. We all do.
Sure there is much sadness in our world, but there is also beauty and excitement. It’s time to embrace what our children see again. How amazingly happy we would all be if we just saw the world through the eyes of a child. What a beautiful world we would live in if we would just embrace this.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I have some rocks to play with. There are castles to be built and I’m missing out on the wonderment of life! Are you?
