Sidewalk Chalk


I have to say- if ever there were a product of childhood that everyone could endorse, it would have to be Crayola. Crayola crayons are the best crayons, Crayola markers are the best markers, and Crayola chalk is the best belly laugh I’ve had all week!

chalkWhenever life gets you down, you can always count on kids to bring you back up! Their sheer silliness will chase the grumps away! They don’t know we should be worried about the ruined sheet rock in the laundry room. They just know its funny to color yourself with chalk.

Everything is beautiful, in its own way!! So, with my zoo all a mess and the chaos all around, I’m just gonna thank the Lord for this beautiful disaster I call my life and I’m gonna crank up that goofy old song and go rip down so more walls. One day, this house is gonna be beautiful too!
