This weekend I took my wonderful grandson to the Phoenix Zoo. He has been there before but it has been many, many, many years since I have visited.
The vision for our zoo began in the early l960's and has grown to be one of the largest zoo's in the country.
It was a warm weekend here as we walked the zoo's grounds and stopped at all the various exhibits.
Seeing all the animals in their habitats was certainly wonderful...ours is a somewhat interactive zoo...which allows various animals to be fed and touched. But the most memorable event that I remember from our little outing was this....
No...not the peacock...but the willingness of complete strangers to help you see hidden animals when needed and just jumping in with information when you had questions.
The zoo was packed over the weekend with hundreds and hundreds of visitors...yet we all had this commonality~~ no matter how different we each were~~ all of us were enjoying God's wonders and just helping each other with the experience.
I so wish life all over the planet could be just like this.....don't you?
