Everyday wonders

Wonder and amazement are often considered territory of youngsters. As we grow older, we grow less fascinated with the world around us, take for granted the everyday wonders in our paths.

Or so I'm told.

I'm happy to report that even as a grandma, there is much that still amazes me, no matter how many times I experience the things of wonder.

Most recently my sense of awe kicked into high gear while flying to the desert to visit Bubby. I've done it too many times to count, yet it never ceases to amaze me that in less than two hours, I can get from here ...

... to here ...

In the air. Without falling out of the sky. While still having refreshments to nibble, restrooms nearby, someone else at the wheel, someone else fully in charge of navigation.

And while traveling from mountains to desert, I get to sit back and enjoy this:

Yep, it truly amazes me. Each and every time.

I'm thankful it still does.

Today's question:

What everyday occurrences still amaze you?
