We just celebrated green.
And at Christmas we celebrate gold, green & red.

Labor Day - white.
Valentine's - pink 'n red.
Halloween - orange

When does my favorite color get a turn?
Easter, yeah, kinda.
But it needs it's own special day.
How does one celebrate the color yellow, you ask?
Think sunshine, smiley faces, lemons,
warmth, happiness......
What makes you happy?
Gets you right in the sweet spot of your heart
and makes your soul do a jig?
Makes you want to shout,
"Hooray for today!"

There's lots of ways we can celebrate.
Draw a sun on your kids' bathroom mirror,
bake a lemon cake,
pin a felt happy face to your shirt
and wear it all weekend,
read in the sunlight.

Even more meaningful,
do something that will bring some yellow
to someone else.
Serving others never fails to bring
some sunshine to your soul, and theirs.
Send a letter to cheer up a friend.
Help a neighbor bring in the groceries.
Doorbell ditch some flowers.
Hold the door open for a stranger.
Donate some clothes or food.
Get creative.
This is going to be real fun.

Now go, plan, celebrate, and have fun!
I'm inviting you to join me
this Friday through Sunday eve
to celebrate the yellow moments of the weekend.
I hope you'll leave me a comment next Monday
and tell me how it went!

  8. Love the beach pick of Bugg! Too cute! And I'm all about celebrating yellow. When I think of yellow, I think of my mother (her favorite color)!
