Do you remember when you were a child how amazing things were? The sunrise, the sunset, a rainbow or a shooting star were all fantastic! Are they any less spectacular now that you’re older? No, but as we get older and busier we get distracted by all the devices we use everyday. Devices like cell phones, internet and email consume lots of our time and we pay less and less attention to the miracles that happen around us everyday. Just remember that when you take something for granted, you take the excitement out of it for everyone around you. Our family was fortunate enough to see the miracle of the space shuttle ascend into the sky and disappear. We took a few moments to marvel and our children got interested and excited about it as well. Just remember that boredom and gloom will breed when nothing is “special”. Look at your surroundings as if it were for the first time. Don’t miss a thing! This week take those few extra moments to marvel at those happenings that are really beautiful or special.
