The Spirit of a Child

"The secret of genius is to carry the spirit
of the child into old age."

I am drawn to cute.  I just found this little ceramic baby rabbit at the thrift store.

Why am I drawn to cute???  As I ponder this question, I believe it is because it means the purity of our spirit.  Not letting the world spoil the perfection of who we are.  Being our authentic selves and loving our quirkiness.  Seeing the world through a child's eyes in wonder and amazement.   

Cuteness equates to joy in my mind and I will always try to foster the spirit of the child in me. 



  1. its precious. I too find myself, at heart, a child, simple, sweet, loving the tiny joys in life.

  3. Oh I just LOVE this! I hate to admit it but sometimes I love "cute" too even though I prefer to think of myself as cool, hip, and groovy. Hahaha!
