For the love of all children in every part of our world.

I hope you will indulge me as I share this photo again, another favorite that seemed to fit with the quote I found below.  Daddy was showing this little one the wonder of butterflies.

Butterfly Garden - Daddy and Precious Butterfly

"A child's world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement.  It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.  If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world, be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantment of later year....the alienation from the sources of our strength."

~Rachel Carson~
"The Sense of Wonder"

For every child I wish the company of the good fairy, to guide that child throughout their life.  May that sense of wonder never leave them.
