Fresh Look

If you ever want to have a fantastic day, spend your day with a young person. It can be your child, niece, nephew, grandchild, or family friend. You don’t need to go and do something special or amazingly different – you can do something that you do all the time, but go ahead and share that experience with someone young. Children are awesome. They see the world with fresh new eyes and send their unique perspective right to your heart. It is so much fun to watch them smile with their entire being over a squirrel in the woods or a new flower just blossoming or a hermit crab trying to find its way through the world. Children are able to find wonder in places you just might be missing. A puddle of mud holds the secret to hours of laughter. Coloring together can unlock an inner Picasso that has been shut away for many years. Playing with a camera can capture more genuine smiles than any staged picture session. A bird singing on a chair next to you can bring giggles you never expected. When you look at the world through the eyes of a child, you might discover all the wonders you have been missing. Somehow in all the hustle and bustle of day-to-day activities, some of life’s miracles tend to become a little bit black and white…perhaps fading into the distance. Share your world with a child and you will feel all the color rush back into your days. They see the things we have long forgotten and make the world fresh and new again.
