Beauty Seen Through a Child’s Eyes

Carol A. Hand

My Granddaughter, Ava, presented me with a picture she drew of me recently. She was excited to point out that my glasses reflected the things and people I love. (And I guess I do look at the world a little differently.)

It’s such a gift to have a child tell you that she knows you love her and to know that when she thinks of you, she sees you smiling. I hope you have people who remind you that beauty is in the eyes (and heart) of the beholder.

About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    Yes, I was going to say she is very observant, too 🙂 When my kids were small it was such a joy to see and experience the world all over again through their eyes. My husband and I were at a department store a few days ago and they had all the little Easter dresses on display. We started reminiscing how fun it was when they were young. They are 19 and almost 20 now, quite different, haha.

    • It’s so delightful to hear from you, Robbie, and congratulations on your first granddaughter, and of course your new grandson! I hope you post pictures of them and all your grandchildren 🙂

      And thank you so much for your kindness. Ava is a talented artist, although I’m not sure she realizes it. I’m sure your comments will make her happy. I send my best wishes to you and your family ❤

    I love little Ava’s picture of you, Carol. She obviously see a lot of beauty in the world spread by her grandma’s love. I’m so glad your surgery was successful so you can continue reflecting back the good things you discover ❤
