December 4. Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
This past year I lived a lot of my life watching Kale experience things I take for granted. Things like escalators or velcro or balloons. Watching him experience, process, and form opinions was wonderful for me, because it significantly helped me see things I forget all about with fresh eyes.
It’s thrilling when you first experience bubbles. They’re pretty, and seem to defy physics, and float so gently. It’s amazing when you realize that you can RUN.
This year, I cultivated a sense of wonder by letting myself experience life the way a child does. It has been so beautiful and I am thankful to have shared it with Kale.
