    I agree. Curiosity leads to other great thinking tools like imagination. That’s one that I think kids now a days are lacking in. As long as a person stays curious, they will forever be using their minds. 🙂

    • So true, Leah! Asking questions is one I’ve always done. I’m curious and yes, I do know the saying, “Curiosity killed the cat,” haha! But if we’re not, how can we learn? 🙂

    I keep hoping and praying that all the energy today’s youth expend on their video games will lead them to something more profound in their futures. It seems to be their only lifeline with the drive to achieve that which holds their attention for the curious . . . .

    • Wow, Barb…one can only hope and pray, right? However, that being said, I have seen the curious spark from my own grandchildren, and that makes me proud and hopeful. (((HUGS)))

    I’m pretty sure that my childrens’ Fairy Godmother gave the gift of curiosity to at least one of my children.
