Thankful List Day 5: Color

I recently purchased a Hello Kitty coloring book and a new box of Crayola Crayons.

Well, the box said for ages 5 and up. And I am up. So there.

As a kid, there was always something that came alive in me whenever a brand new 64-count box of Crayola goodness was unearthed and opened for the first time. Having more than one shade of blue, pink, or red to choose from to color Snoopy's face was a decision I made with bliss and careful precision. I loved coloring, and all the brilliant colors to see and choose from. Still do.

Color brings life to my world and as the fall softly blends into the cold of the soon-to-be-winter season, it's the colors around me like this that remind me to be thankful for changing seasons. For the golds, yellows, and reds that mark another season I have been blessed to witness, grow in, and live through.

Here's to life, color, and Crayons for us in the "up" group.

Happy Tuesday!
