Maybe One Day I'll Grow Up
But I really hope not....
I'm scared I'd lose a sense of wonder.
The awe that comes from discovering new ideas.
The joy from adventurous experiences.
The delight from looking at Christmas lights.
The excitement from watching a great movie.
The connection to fictional characters in a good book.
The anticipation of Christmas morning.
The laughter that comes from staying up late with friends.
The thrill that happens decorating the tree.
The mystery that is experienced hearing that I am loved beyond measure. For no reason at all.
May we never forget the wonder of childhood.
All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.
– The Aviator in The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
