Daniel’s birthday today, and the kids sang for him.

Things are so much better when they are colorful. I doubt any of us stop to appreciate the color of something in our busy lives. Today, as I watched the children sit on the ground with a plate full of different paint colors, I saw their creativity shine through. They used their fingers, and went crazy on a big piece of paper. All these bright colors, even if they weren’t creating any single image, still made my heart so happy. Colors fill our lives with joy and happiness.IMG_8208When I was at the day care today, I noticed how much, colors play a role in a child’s life. The little ones rolled around play dough that was bright red, and did puzzles that were full of colorful images.

But I do see the effort people have put into their own little homes, adding colorful walls and roofs. A little bit of paint can brighten up your day, which might slightly explain the smiles on these people. (It might be 2% of the reason, but it might be a reason).

Color shows me hope, color shows me happiness, and color shows me pride.

As I sat with Ann (Larry Shuttleworth’s lovely mother), I asked her what she saw today, and how her day was. She managed to sum up SIA and it’s team into some simple words.

Colorful minds with lots of ability.
