Crayon Quotes: Color My World from Pablo Picasso

early morning sunrise


dawn's light

Just at dawn's light, I began to ponder on the new day breaking, with a November sky. Meditating on this pretty golden sunrise, I wondered how my granddaughter (2 years old), would color my world... just for today! Photos for SkyWatch Friday.

As the morning hours unfolded, we found ourselves busily coloring. We had quite an assortment of fat crayons and thin ones, too. I knew it was a wonderful opportunity for me to build my granddaughter up with praise. Just to hug and play, tickle and giggle have great rewards; a win-win situation. Our little one was exploring the magic realm of crayons.

I wish I were a white crayon, that way no one could use me.  ~Author Unknown

"Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing?  Can one really explain this?  No." ~Pablo Picasso
many crayons: LadyD Books

"We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box."  ~Robert Fulghum

Granddaughter happy: LadyD Books

"Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world.  Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak.  Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up."  ~Allen Klein  

Better Than Medicine, A Merry Heart by Leroy Brownlow
The Friday 56 

 Ask yourself: "Am I the person I wish to be? I was born a pleasant happy baby - what have I grown into?"
My Aunt Sophia gave me this book to read about living life and understanding it. I like this one.
I'm leaning towards joy being the best therapy. What do you think?

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine" Proverbs 17:22

Happy reading,
