I Love Thursday #163 Numerous Blessings
This is the 163rd post of things we love for the week. Oops, I forgot to set this to be sent earlier today! We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
More than Peach! Here’s an inspiring story about a third-grade student who is making a difference. When prompted to pass a “skin-tone” crayon to a classmate, she realized that there are many more skin tones beyond peach. With her parents’ help and blessing, she has started distributing crayons in a multitude of skin colors. I hope you have a moment to read about Bellen’s project, More than Peach. She’s now in fifth-grade . . . I can’t imagine all the impact she’ll make during her life on positive change.
Serious fun! I’m warning my friends and family now – we are due some serious fun once the pandemic is behind us. Party like it’s 2020 – a due over, of sorts, no matter when we’re able. I think we’ve all earned this, don’t you?!
Our Christmas cactus has graced us with a few blossoms just in time for the holidays. In previous years, it has bloomed near Thanksgiving and then one other time near Easter. I guess it’s one more thing to chalk up to 2020 as it seems to be as confused as we are. For now, we’ll just enjoy the heck out of the blossoms.
Colt spent a little time with us last weekend. Of course, that involved some fun times with Annie Sue – giggles were shared all around. Mr. 9-month-old now can stand in the middle of the room all by himself. The key is that he needs to have something in his hand to be able to do it – you know it won’t be long now before he is running after his cousins. Colt didn’t mind having a bit of Adios time especially when it included a selfie.
Who are those hoodlums in jammies and hats?! How adorable do they look, getting ready for bed?! Addi has a new ballerina outfit which will be the theme for her January birthday. The small photo of Dominic is him in his pre-school program outfit. I had to take a screenshot from the video they shared with the parents (which was promptly shared with Gamma, GG, and us, of course).
