#reverb10 Day 4 - Wonder

How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? - Jeffrey Davis

This question kinda makes me feel like I'm five years old.  I think wonder goes along with innocence, which all sadly fades with age.  Wonder makes me think of wide-eyed children, faces full of surprise.  The only "wondering" I've done this year has been negative.  If I ever wondered how we'd do as a single-income family, I've certainly found out and I don't like it.  If I ever wondered what would happen when DH left active duty, I sure found out and it hasn't been pleasant.  I'm hoping to experience more of the sort of wonder this question is prompting me about.

So, let's give a cheer to a new year and new opportunities to experience wonder in my life.  I'm hoping to find myself in a state of wonderment, possibly with DH on the honeymoon we never had.  That would definitely make 2011 a memorable year!  Hell, I'd settle for any vacation or road trip that actually involved my DH.  A girl can dream, right?
