This photo cracks me up. As soon as I started potty training Baby George I got out some cute boy undies to entice him. They were so exciting that Sis decided she wanted to wear them too! These precious babes. Two peas in a pod. The color of their skin means nothing to them. They are brother and sister...and friends. Beautiful.

We are celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Yesterday we took the kids to a MLK celebration in our town. The event was sponsored by several churches and featured music and speeches. It was an amazing event.

The MLK choir was out of this world. I had chills from their booming voices and tears in my eyes. The kids loved the music and were very good during the speeches. The celebration lasted 2.5 hours! It was something we want to be part of every year.

It was a wonderful sight to see...this morning as I arrived at the YMCA for my workout...there were loads of teens and seniors arriving to volunteer together. The United Way organized the event to have volunteers go out and help people in the community. Love it!! That is exactly what MLK would want to see being done in his honor.

What did you or your family do to celebrate MLK Day? I'd love to know...leave it in the comments.

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'” Martin Luther King, Jr.

  1. I thought about your "what are you doing" question for a few days. I think, on the part of keeping up with my church and family, I'm okay. The thing I feel guilty about is the fact that often I'm not as active in the Medical Response Team and I feel I should be. I keep up on the classes and have volunteered for some of the phone teams but I didn't during the last flood. I feel guilty about that. Your latest blog is, indeed, a call - not to arms but to plowshears.
