    Smile has a childlike joy about/toward/for life

    Suzanne is sixty years old, but she still has a childlike joy about/toward/for life.



    Do all the three words in bold fit in the above context? If not, why not? Thanks.

    About is possible as a preposition in the sense of of and in connection with. Toward is also possible in the sense of with respect to, regarding, about and for.

    Do you suggest that all of the three do the trick?

    By the way, you have such a lenient, loving, beneficent alias.
