I Love Thursday #126 Plentiful Blessings
This is the 126th post of things we love for the week. 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.
A.F.L. Initiative! No, not the American Football League which is my first thought when I saw those letters. AFL stands for Accept, Forgive and Love. Accept people who are not like you. They might be a different gender, have a different religion, be a different color or have a different culture than you. Choose to forgive them (for not being more like you) as accepting others for who they are, make your life and the world . . . a better place. Finally, just love them for it would be a boring world if we were all the same. ♥ ♥
Hyacinth peeking! In spite of some slow-melting snow, our hyacinth bulbs are peeking out. Surely a nice sign of Spring, I don’t even know how that snow can still BE around after some 60-degree temperatures on the weekend. Sheltered from the sun I guess can be the only explanation.
60-degree sunshine! Speaking of a 60-degree day with sunshine – does it get any better than that on the second Sunday in March?!!
Great greats! Sue and I are both blessed with a multitude of nieces and nephews, which has led to great-nieces and great-nephews. Two of our favorites had a birthday earlier this week! Mikaela Jeanette just turned 14 on Saturday followed two days later by her eleven-year-old brother, Jaxson Liam. We wish them both a Happy Birthday and the year ahead to be filled with many blessings. ♥ ♥
Addison and Dominic finally used their Barnes & Noble gift certificates for some new books. Nom, nom, nom. Addison is all set for the Easter Bunny and egg hunt in a few weeks! She’ll be stylin’ the bunny ensemble just as she worked her red cowgirl boots. Little did Dominic know, he was on the way to the doctor or he would have just kept on running. No shots though, Dominic.
Back home, it’s fun, fun, fun times jumping on Dominic’s bed before a nap. Dominic still enjoys a good time in the swing. Finally, it’s a spectacularly sunny day in March for a slide ride. ♥ ♥ ♥
