The Importance of Childlike Wonder

Yesterday was a day filled with all sorts of magic...
as is any day seen through the eyes of a five-year-old.


The world through the eyes of a five-year-old is an
extraordinarily magical place.
There is wonder in the tiniest of things...
like the way a grasshopper flies across the hayfield,
landing for just a moment then hopping back into flight again.


Our days, this week, with Mackenzie were filled with all of those
simple delights.
At her request, we sat ourselves down at the edge of the field of dreams
and patiently waited.


We had had an inkling that the fawn that I had watched play in this very spot
the previous week might again show himself...
and we were not disappointed.
Sadly, I missed the photo opportunity, having left my camera in the gator,
and not wanting to startle the fawn.

We sat still and quiet for several minutes watching it as it
looked back with curiosity at the three beings at the edge of the meadow.
It was a truly magical moment...
furthering our belief that in our field of dreams...
dreams really do come true... you only have to believe!

We witnessed something unusual back at the house,
and luckily Hubbs was able to get a video to share with you....
