This week's prompt: Wonder
I associate wonder with worry. I wonder if we will have money to pay the bills. I wonder if I will have a full time job. I wonder if the mole between my toes is normal? I wonder if my son will do okay in kindergarten?
Children seem to associate wonder with.....well, wonder! I wonder why the trees fall off of the trees? I wonder what will happen if drop this ball? I wonder where apples come from? Maybe they do not always say it aloud, but their actions reflect their ponderings.
So when did my wonders of wonder turn into wonders of worry? It is not like I have the answer to everything? My days should be wondering alongside the children, exploring. figuring things out. Yes, I am an adult and I do have responsibilities, but I need to draw the line between Wonder and Worry.
