Month of Gratitude - November 6

This morning as I stared at my closet deciding what to wear, I took into consideration that my day would end  at my daughters' volleyball games.  Knowing that Lela's jersey is red and Emily's jersey is blue, I debated wearing something completely neutral such as yellow so as not to offend either or to find a way to make them both happy.

I went for the latter and pulled out a purple shirt.  They both got the significance that red and blue make purple and so I was supporting them both.  Isn't it nice to know that the ability of red and blue coming together in the beautiful color purple can bring happiness?  It is such a simple concept, taught in preschool, that children can understand.
