Wondrous Wednesdays: through the eyes of a child…

Last week, we had the great joy of caring for our grandsons. Now, any grandparent worth their salt needs to have an arsenal of supplies for such an adventure! Included in our tool kit:

  • Pads of drawing paper
  • Fresh boxes of crayons
  • Bubbles
  • Balls
  • Swimming pool in the summer
  • Card games—especially “Go Fish”
  • Matchbox cars
  • Transformers
  • DVD’s of Paw Patrol and Wild Kratts
  • Sidewalk chalk

This last item is especially needed for outdoor creative time. The boys devoured the chalk and did not disappoint this Granny in terms of creative inventions!

The artwork was exquisite 🙂

The greatest aspect of this chalk-work was the unending wellspring of ideas and imagination and story-telling. These are qualities to nurture and hold on to for a life time…for all of us!

Go color something, ok??

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
