In the eyes of a child...
the world is a place full of morning magic...
and evening wonder...
It is a place full of vibrant colors...
and pulsating sounds ...
...and all the hues of the rainbow. ... ..................................................................................
It is a place for wide-eyed dreams
and long-cherished memories ... ..................................................................................
In a child's eyes, life is absolutely fantabulistic ..
and yes, expialidocious, too!
And the future is forever. ..................................................................................
In a child's eyes,
there is no death...
no war.... .
no taxes....
no crime ........
no jobs ........
no responsibilities.......
no tests, no quizzes .......
no broken bones .......
no long-lasting pain........
Just a few nosebleeds,....
a few scratches here and there,....
a headache now and then, ....
shoes that are too tight, ....
and clothes that do not fit....... ..................................................................................
OH, TO BE A CHILD AGAIN!.... ..................................................................................
To witness firsthand the sheer joy of discovery....
... the excitement of learning .......
the pleasures of sights and sounds .......
of touch and smell ... ....
of taste and sensation ... ....
of feelings and friends..... ................................................................................
From a child's point of view,....
the world is indeed a charming place.......
full of warmth and loveliness... ....
and peopled by uncles and aunts.......
grandmothers and grandfathers.......
mommies and daddies... ....
brothers and sisters....... and neighbors and friends. .... .....................................................................................
In a child's eyes... ....
there is no looking back ... ....
only looking forward .......
into the future... ....
that awaits us all...... ...........................................................................................
Did your dreams come true yet?....
Or are you still waiting? .... ..............................................................................
Listen: today is the first day of the rest of your life ... ....
REMEMBER THIS: It is never too late to begin again .... ..................................................................................
For in a child's eyes ....
it is really never too late ....
to begin again. .... .......................................................................................
Find the child within yourself who is willing to begin again ... ....
to rise up from your current worries and woes... ....
Stronger and freer than ever before. ....
In a child's eyes, it is never too late to begin again.......
For in a child's eyes, it really is never too late to begin again........ ..................................................................................
YOU CAN TOO! .................................................................................. .................................................................................. .................................................................................. .................................................................................. ..................................................................................
