Monday thought of the week: a blossoming appreciation for our natural world

A thought:

As we talked about each of her treasures, I could SEE the passion in her eyes. The collections in her basket wrapped with the utmost care were the beginnings of a love of science. A love of nature. A blossoming appreciation for our natural world. I quickly realized that WE (my husband, colleagues, co-workers) were ALL that little girl. I was that little girl.
