I am so thankful for spring, with the dawn chorus of birds every morning I open the door for the dog, the colors of flowers blooming in the garden and on the trees, the bright sunshine, the warmer and longer days.

Thanks is something that we need to practice every day of our lives, to be able to live fully!

Sometimes, though, there are times When Thanks Seems Inadequate, and that was the most viewed post of this week.

Also this week :

How to Change Other Peoples Kids
(a beautiful lesson I learned)

Week Five of Lent
(how does Christ deal with evil people?)

Parenting from the Wings
(what I learned about parenting from the theater)

Want to Giggle in Wonder
(a little awe and wonder to make us smile)

Blessings to you this day,
Carole

I love expressions

of joy

of excitement

of wonder.

So when I saw the video (below) of An and Ria’s first flight, I was in a wonder-filled state!

Two Dutch grandmas, An and Ria, were given the opportunity of experiencing something neither had ever done before … a first time flying in an airplane.

An, a bit more outwardly nervous, tried out a flight simulator to prepare, while adventurous Ria was introduced to roller coasters as her preparation.

They were given a tablet with instruction of how to use it, as well.

When the two arrived at the airport, they had their first meeting.

Every step from then on was one of awe and wonder, like watching a toddler discover his or her world.

The highlights, for me, were the roller coaster, the flight simulator, their meeting, take off, their looking out the windows, the after flight online conversation between An and her husband, and the beach scene.

So, if you are looking for a little awe and wonder, check out their video (below).

“He who can no longer pause to wonder
and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”
