Wonderment ? amazed admiration or awe. I thought it was a word that the Ladyfisher had made up [she has a tendency to do that] but to my ?wonderment? it?s an actual word. To the Ladyfisher many things are wonderment. She has a childlike sense of wonder about everything, and it?s quite an admirable characteristic. After one of our walks where she gushed with enthusiasm over the beauty of several things that we saw along the way I got to thinking about how much we miss when we fail to develop an adequate sense of wonderment.
