I love to color. This weekend, I spent some time with my colored pencils and what Conner (my 5 year old great-nephew) calls my “big girl coloring books.” We sang together (Yes, the Oak Ridge Boys), shared laughs, and got serious about our “art.”
We talked about the red birds in the bush outside the window – they’re making a home for their babies there. I learned why super heroes are so important to Conner – because the good guys always win. We talked about Jesus and finger prints. From time to time when it got too serious. he’d show me a couple of his super guy moves and I’d giggle. He said he liked it when I did that. From time to time he’d check on my coloring and would say, “You’re doing a good job, Joy.” He meant it. What a kid!
I sure hope Conner comes back to color with me soon.
