I ♥ Faces~ Wonder


My thought is filled with wonder, 
    The day one grand surprise, 
First one thing and then another 
    Has come before my eyes. 
A spider in the garden, 
    Was weaving fairy clothes, 
A child stood by to watch it 
    Under her little toes. 
A bold and craggy mountain, 
    A sparkling waterfall; 
And picturesque stalactites 
    Hang from a cavern wall. 
I saw two little eaglets 
    Just learning how to fly; 
Sun shadows through an oak-bough, 
    A river flowing by. 
A brilliant patch of sumac 
    Along a winding road; 
A quaint old fashioned cabin, 
    (Some pioneer's abode). 
Oh, there were many others, 
    I quite forget the rest, 
Because my baby's fingers 
    Lie gently on my breast.

__Marie Emery George

I love this poem.  It fits not only this picture perfectly, as it was captured while Sugar Bear admired a spider, it certainly describes many a moment in my mothering life.  Watching Sugar Bear's constant sense of WONDER as she explores this amazing world, is equaled by the WONDER I feel as I lay eyes on my child each day.

I am pretty excited to head on over to I ♥ faces blog, and see all the moments of WONDER on all the adorable faces.

Children definitely allow us to see life from a different angle. If only we could find the same sense of wonder that they do. This is a beautiful picture. I just love her beautiful eyes!
