The day of the Color Run finally arrived, and my daughter and I, along with many of her classmates and their mothers, piled on the bus at her school and headed down to Miller Park in Milwaukee, the location of the Color Run.
The event included a pre-run party with Zumba Dancing and a post-run party with dancing and color explosions. All through-out the run, there were stations set up where the runners were splattered with colored chalk. By the end of the run we were a colorful mess, plenty tired, but very happy. Like Joseph we were coated in colors and felt loved by God and each other. It was a perfect mother and daughter day!
Thank you for opportunities to enjoy my beautiful daughter and to spend time with her doing things that enhance our health and well-being, for when we are healthy and happy, we have more energy to devote to bringing about Your Kingdom in this world. Thank you for blessing us with family and friends who encourage us to be the best we can be and to use Your gifts wisely.
