Through the eyes of a child.

Friday, December 11, 2009

Today LIVINGTHIN's daily status asked that we read her first blog entitled Gratitude. It included a link to watch a short 'movie' called "Learning to Dance in the Rain".

Here is the link:


I find this appropriate with the weather changes we are all experiencing lately.

I still don't want to dance in the rain, but it is a reminder to be thankful for the weather, whether we like it or not.

Without the snows, areas suffer droughts. The cold kills off many viruses and pests. Without the rains, nothing would grow and we would all perish.

I titled this blog, Through the eyes of a child, because it reminds me of how the innocent child views the changing weather. And I can remember "balancing" as I walked the curbs of life.

    It is true that it is important to remember how marvellous the world seemed when we were children. Thank you for the reminder. Sometimes I think I expect my kids to grow up fast, when I should instead think of how marvellous it is that they see the world as they do.

    Thanks for this link, very nice pictures and aphorisms.
Your title is very right, and sometimes we lose our children's eyes, and forget to see the joy in everyday life.

Keep on being a emoticon whatever the weather crossing your path is!
