I Love Thursday #257 Abundant Blessings
This is the 257th post of things we love for the week. We post each Thursday along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out as you will surely find something to inspire you. “From the fullness of His grace, we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16
Color! This is a picture of Petrifying Springs Park near us. It amazes me at the depth and width of color in such a small area. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to catch the sky when it’s that really pretty blue. It’s such a beautiful park to enjoy with many walking paths and picnic areas.
Pause. I take a quiet moment every single day to pause and be thankful. Sometimes it’s early in the morning while other days it’s as I lay down for the night. The art of being happy can sometimes be forgotten or left by the wayside in its pursuit. Chasing it isn’t as fun as just being it in the moment!
Our littles . . . have continued to live their best lives. While Dominic is in school all day, the other three (or four) are only tied up in school in the morning. That leaves plenty of time to visit places with big slides like the ones that Addison and Colt are enjoying. Colt and Chase also found some colorful scooters to race with each other. Chase, would just started pre-school last month, really enjoys with art activities. So much so that he will tell you that he has forgotten to cry when he’s dropped off!
Colt and family went to visit Santa recently. There was a letter writing station that Dada was happy to help him with. Once the letter was written, it was time to mail it to the North Pole. After that, Colt informed the stand-in Santa what was on his list and he also promised to be good. It seems that Colt is loving his role as big brother to baby Maverick. Finally, Addison was crowned as A Star for good behavior. She was rewarded with some Blue Moon ice cream BEFORE lunch! We all wish you a Happy Thursday.
